5.12: Produce Configurable Patient Immunization History Report

Provide Feedback

Overview

The EHR or other clinical software system allows users to modify and save a template that produces a patient’s immunization history to meet the needs of the populations served by the practice.

Example

Dr. Jones is an internist whose practice covers patients aged 19 and above. A large number of his patients work for a large local healthcare provider. To avoid receiving duplicate vaccinations, Dr. Jones’ patients require documentation of specific vaccines that are required for employment and are administered by their individual physicians. Therefore, Dr. Jones wants to create an immunization report listing only those required vaccines to give to his patients.

Guidance

Some EHRs allow a provider to modify the “standard” patient immunization history report to meet the needs of local populations. Others will provide specific custom report configurations on request. Usability evaluation such as a UCD process may inform the content and functionality for immunization report configuration capabilities.

  • Vendor Perspectives. Usability evaluation such as a UCD process may inform the content and functionality for immunization report configuration capabilities.
  • Provider and Implementer Perspectives. Discuss preferences for a configurable patient immunization history report with the software vendor.
