CPP Vaccine Summit a Success

The inaugural CPP Buying Group – Vaccine Management Summit on May 2 was a great success. More than 100 vaccine professionals from across the state attended the conference to gain knowledge from industry leaders. Dr. Kristen Feemster, Director of Research for the Vaccine Education Center at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, kicked off the summit with a comprehensive review of vaccines on the horizon.

The first round of breakout sessions focused on Central Ohio Primary Care’s efforts to improve pediatric and adult vaccination rates, a presentation about maximizing savings when purchasing vaccines, and a discussion on vaccine documentation and coding.

CPP staff hard at work at the registration table.

The second group of breakout sessions included a panel discussion between representatives of Pediatric Associates and the Ohio AAP on creating a culture of vaccination, a presentation by Mount Carmel Health on inventory management and 2D barcoding, and information from the Ohio Department of Health concerning vaccine storage guidelines and updates.

Attendee feedback was overwhelmingly positive.  CPP staff and planning committee members are already working to make the next summit even better.
