“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.
Immunization use cases can be made available to patients through Personal Health Records (PHRs) so patients may retrieve their own Immunization History/Forecast, for example a parent needing their child’s immunization history the day before summer camp, eliminating the time consuming need to physically go to the pediatrician’s clinic to obtain a paper copy.
