Session ID: 

Reducing Burden Interfacing Public Health and Clinical Care

2:30pm - 3:30pm Thursday, February 14
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center


Functional interoperability standards guide sharing information among clinicians and their respective immunization registries. CDC supports two programs to improve the quality of immunization-related information: validation of registries by the American Immunization Registry Association (AIRA) and recognition of EHR vendor product workflow and interoperability by the HIMSS Immunization Integration Program (IIP). This interactive session will facilitate discussion regarding options for collaboration to improve mutual understanding of workflow and burden across public health and clinical care perspectives. Facilitators will also solicit feedback to improve data quality and improve immunization rates.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Describe how to evaluate and harmonize requirements for public health and clinical registry analysis with clinician and consumer needs for decision making and clinical care
  • Explain how to address clinical and analytical requirements with clinical care workflow to enhance clinical software usability and effectiveness
  • Describe how to approach collaboration with other stakeholders in the immunization management domain
  • List examples of use cases to show variation in workflow to effectively address administered vaccines that are ineffective (i.e., non-potent)
  • Recognize workflow implications for managing messages indicating errors in data transmission to a registry and how they may be addressed
