Every year, vaccinations save at least 2 to 3 million lives globally. Currently in the U.S., immunizations protect newborns against 17 serious diseases and conditions (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 2010 National Vaccine Plan).
HIMSS, ICSA Labs and CNI Advantage, LLC. (CNI) have recently collaborated to launch the Immunization Integration Program (IIP), supported by CDC, which utilizes electronic health records (EHRs) and other clinical software to achieve reduced costs, higher clinician productivity, and improved health outcomes.
Why implement this program? You will:
- increase efficiency of vaccine administration
- Obtain easier and speedier access to immunization histories
- Increase caregiver and patient vaccine information awareness
- Improve vaccine tracking and safety, as well as the national vaccination rate
HIMSS, ICSA Labs and CNI Advantage, LLC. (CNI) invite health IT vendors to test their immunization-capable products in the Immunization Integration Program [IIP], supported by CDC. Participation is free of charge.
