Testing the Accuracy of Clinical Decision Support for Immunizations

10:30am - 11:30am Tuesday, March 10
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
W414C

Description

The American Immunization Registry Association (AIRA) continues to expand its standards-based Immunization Information System (IIS) Measurement and Improvement Initiative. In early 2019, AIRA released the baseline reports on Clinical Decision Support, or CDS. This is the first nationwide systematic effort to validate that CDS engines are functioning in accordance with the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, or ACIP, the federal body that recommends vaccines for children, adolescents, and adults. The latest data visuals and improvements, along with their impact and use at the state IIS level, will be shared during the conference. In addition, HIMSS and AIRA continue to work together testing EHRs and IIS to help identify and address interoperability problems. Through expanded testing methods, AIRA and HIMSS are amplifying the call to action for greater standards alignment and improved data quality to benefit IIS, EHRs and providers domestically and globally.

Learning Objectives

  • Define the components of a third-party independent testing process in assessing alignment with standards
  • Identify the value, in human and financial resources throughout the community, of a centralized testing and improvement process to improve the accuracy of clinical decision support engines
  • Describe the benefits of pairing both testing and technical assistance in accelerating improvements as a result of an assessment process
