Document Number: 2017-00245

Date: 2017-01-10
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services
This is a Request for Information (RFI) about business models, existing, under development or planned, that support health care providers for any of the components related to private-sector immunization services (e.g., excluding vaccines provided through federal and state programs, such as the Vaccines for Children Program, Children's Health Insurance Program, Medicaid, and Medicare): Vaccine purchase, distribution, storage and handling, inventory management, reporting to Immunization Information Systems (IIS), including models for populating IIS directly/automatically from electronic health records (EHRs), immunization coverage assessment, forecasting vaccine demand, and billing. The RFI is being issued by the National Vaccine Program Office (NVPO) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The NVPO is located in the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health (ASH), Office of the Secretary (OS), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The NVPO is responsible for coordinating and ensuring collaboration among the many federal agencies involved in vaccine and immunization activities. The National Vaccine Program was established in compliance with Title XXI of the Public Health Service Act (Pub. L. 99-660) (Sec. 2101) (42 U.S. Code 300aa-et seq (PDF78 KB)) to achieve optimal prevention of human infectious diseases through immunization and to achieve optimal prevention against adverse reactions to vaccines. Development of a National Vaccine Plan (NVP) has been mandated to the NVPO as a mechanism for the Director of the National Vaccine Program (the Assistant Secretary for Health) to communicate priorities for both federal and non-federal stakeholders regarding vaccine research and the development, testing, licensing, production, procurement, distribution, and effective use of vaccines in order to carry out the program's responsibilities. Goal 4 of the plan, Ensure a Stable Supply of, Access to, and Better Use of Recommended Vaccines in the United States, focuses in part on increasing and improving access to vaccines in health care provider settings. This RFI seeks information on innovative business models to support health care providers to increase and improve their ability to provide immunization services, as described below. In its efforts to promote vaccination coverage across the lifespan, the NVPO is seeking information about business models, existing, under development or planned, that enable health care providers to offer vaccines to their privately-insured/private-pay patients. The NVPO is most interested in innovative business models aimed at reducing any of the barriers to implementing vaccination services such as vaccine purchase, billing, storage and handling, IIS reporting, including models for populating IIS directly/automatically from EHRs, forecasting vaccine demand, and managing private vaccine inventories. In addition, the NVPO is interested in models that can demonstrate improvements in the immunization coverage rates of the patients seen in the health care settings utilizing such models as well as improvements in reporting to IIS.
