VTrckS Tips for Success
VTrckS Connection Newsletter
CDC is turning its focus to working more closely with the VTrckS Direct awardees that are or will be deploying providers to the system, to optimize the efficiency and effectiveness of their transition plans. As part of this initiative, over the next two months, VTrckS leadership and program staff will contact selected VTrckS Direct awardees to determine how we can best work together to jumpstart their provider deployment efforts. We will seek to identify and overcome challenges to timely movement of providers onto VTrckS, and will also seek to facilitate updates to awardees’ provider deployment plans as needed.
Read the June/July 2013 VTrckS Connection article for lessons learned from Vermont, which has successfully deployed 100% of its providers. The VTrckS Training Library also features several reference guides, How-To documents, and process flows for awardee use in training providers on the system.
Update on Provider Deployments
11 VTrckS Direct Awardees are or will deploy providers to the system
Est. Total Number of Provider Offices reported by these 11 VTrckS Direct Awardees: 4,862 (per provider deployment plans)
Current Number of Provider Offices ordering vaccine directly in VTrckS: 1,363
Kudos to Vermont for achieving >90% deployment of their providers, and to Alabama, Indiana, and New Hampshire for their current efforts!
