A Long Time Member

Cox Health has been a member of the NIHCL Education Executive National Learning Network since its inception, nearly 13 years ago. They along with the other national learning network members frequently share strategies such as this to significantly improve the performance and delivery of healthcare throughout America. By sharing strategies, results and lessons learned, healthcare organizations and executives across the country have the benefit of some of the best and brightest minds in the industry.

Cox Health's strategy for increasing an already high vaccine rate of their employees:

While Cox Health enjoys a 95% compliance rate (which is well above the national average) of their staff being immunized for the flu, they are hoping the following video will increase their staff vaccinations because of this true experience from one of their own employees.

This video is mandatory for those Cox Health employees who indicate they may decline the flu vaccine. Cox hope is they may change their mind and become vaccinated when they see the devastation that can happen when someone does not get vaccinated.
