KITS for improved immunization of Kauai children.


Kauai physicians and District Health Office staff established a computerized tracking system in 1993 to improve immunization rates in Kauai-born infants. Comparison of 1995 and 1996 audit results of 1993- and 1994-born children showed completion rates for 9 antigens rose from 76% to 86%. Evolution and improvement of the tracking system are discussed. Recommendations for physicians are offered.
