Immunizations are vital to the maintenance of public health due to their power to prevent and sometimes eradicate deadly diseases and potential epidemics. Immunizations must be closely monitored to ensure they are administered correctly and in a timely fashion because vaccination errors can negatively impact a patient’s health to the point of possible fatality.
Currently on a national basis, immunization records are not collectively maintained by any one organization. In Michigan, the Immunization Information System (IIS) is the Michigan Care Improvement Registry (MCIR). It collects immunization records over the course of a Michigan patient’s lifetime and makes that information accessible to authorized healthcare providers.
The Immunization History-Forecast use case allows participating organizations to send electronic vaccination queries through the statewide health information network to MCIR to retrieve electronic data containing a patient’s immunization records.
