Immunization Decision Support

With reporting to Immunization Information Systems (IIS) from Electronic Health Records (EHRs) advancing, it is important to think about how information from EHRs and IIS can work together to provide the most effective immunization decision support. Immunization decision support requires connection across many different systems in many different clinical and public health jurisdictions and represents a leading example of public health decision support in clinical settings. This webinar will consider the kinds of immunization decision support rules needed, decision support use in EHRs and the ways in which IIS’s and EHRs need to connect to support needed transactions.
