This use case scenario describes the requirements for healthcare providers to use the health information network to automatically, electronically send immunization records through a state’s Department of Health to the state’s IIS.
“Vaccines have been hailed as one of the greatest public health achievements of the 20th Century. Nearly 20 million cases of infectious diseases and 42,000 deaths are averted every year in the United States through vaccination.”
Immunizations must be closely monitored to ensure they are administered correctly and in a timely fashion. Healthcare providers (including pharmacies) in Michigan are required to report immunizations to the state immunization information system (IIS) within 72 hours of administration.
The “Immunizations” use case scenario is under the Health Information for State use case.
