The Clinic Assessment Software Application (CASA), now updated as CoCASA, is a tool for assessing immunization coverage rates within a clinic, private practice, or any other environment where immunizations are provided. After immunization data has been entered into CASA, data analysis capabilities can be utilized to pinpoint strengths and areas of improvement for an individual provider.
For more information, or to download CoCASA, see the CDC CoCASA website at
AFIX is a quality improvement strategy to raise immunization coverage levels and improve standards of practices at the provider level. This four-part dynamic strategy stands for Assessment of immunization coverage of public and private providers, Feedback of diagnostic information to improve service delivery, Incentives to recognize and reward improved performance, and eXchange of information among providers.
The Standards for Pediatric Immunization Practices emphasize the use of assessment and feedback techniques, recommending that providers conduct semi-annual audits to assess immunization coverage levels and to review immunization records in the patient populations they serve. The results of such assessments should be discussed by providers as part of their ongoing quality assurance reviews and used to develop solutions to the problems identified.
