NOTE: Year-To-Date (YTD) performance data date range: January 1, 2019 - October 31, 2019

Quality Improvement Table for Pharmacies
Reminder: Access the Quality Improvement Program Table for each measure by clicking on the "Analyze Performance" button found beneath each performance score.
This table is found at the very bottom of the screen as you scroll down and displays program specific scores and details - including program goals, pharmacy performance percentile rank and program details (further details are found by hovering over the question mark icon next to the program name).
The Influenza Vaccination measurement period will be available with the measurement period beginning on June 1st continuing through measurement period to March 31st, 2020 (May 2020 EQuIPP™ release will represent the end of reporting for this measurement period). Due to a new flu season, you may see a performance score of “0%” for the first Influenza Vaccination measurement period (June 1st – July 31st), until the measurement period captures vaccine administrations that would typically begin to take place in August.
Anticipated Immunization performance data date range: June 1, 2019 - October 31, 2019
