Recognition Testing Improves Immunization Workflow and Data
3:00pm - 4:00pmTuesday, March 6
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
Healthcare providers and public health stakeholders share in the objective of reducing the incidence of vaccine preventable disease. Much attention is focused on electronic data sharing (interoperability) to improve vaccination coverage and documentation. CDC and the American Immunization Registry Association (AIRA) have coordinated public health efforts with the ONC’s 2015 Edition certification program. This session will describe the process for defining EHR capabilities and guidance for a voluntary EHR immunization recognition program to complement the baseline immunization capabilities required by the ONC while addressing workflow and data quality. The discussion will address the impact to public health, clinicians and consumers, the testing process, methods to enhance visibility and sustainability of the recognition program. This session presents an effective and replicable collaborative model to coordinate efforts for public health, clinicians, and consumers.
