ALTERNATIVE NAMES

HL7 Version 2.8.2 Implementation Guide: Immunization Messaging, Release 1 - US Realm may also go by the following names or acronyms:

"V2.8.2 IG: Immunization Messaging, R1",

TARGETS

  • Immunization Registries
  • EHR, PHR Vendors
  • Clinical Decision Support Systems Vendors
  • Local and State Departments of Health

BENEFITS

  • Enables a reduced implementation burden for systems looking to exchange immunization related data by providing consistent expectations and requirements for interacting systems
  • Supports the submission of patient demographics and immunization history data to systems interested in collating such data
  • Supports the querying of an evaluated patient history and forecast by point of care systems looking to accurately and efficiently protect the patient against vaccine-preventable diseases

IMPLEMENTATIONS/CASE STUDIES

  • Primary sponsor of the project is the American Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
  • EHRs and most IIS implement a related standard and may investigate moving to this standard in the future

DEVELOPMENT BACKGROUND

The content of this document is substantially similar to a document published by the CDC and the American Immunization Registry Association (AIRA) which forms the basis of the 2015 EHR certification requirements and Meaningful Use (Promoting Interoperability). This document adopts many of the use cases and requirements of this previous document (known as v2.5.2 Release 1.5 IG) and adapts them for v2.8.2 while simultaneously clarifying and enhancing the requirements.
