Integrated Delivery System
ACP does not support QPP measure 111: “Pneumococcal Vaccination Status for Older Adults.” While this measure represents an important clinical concept, implementation could promote treatment overuse if patients seek medical care from multiple providers and/or have poor medical record continuity. In addition, the developer should update the numerator specifications to align with current clinical recommendations on pneumococcal vaccination.
