American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA)Funding Announcement for Enhancing the Interoperability of Electronic Health Records (EHR) and Immunization Information Systems (IIS)

The purpose of this program is to provide support for the enhanced interoperability of EHR with IIS with a specific focus on the exchange of vaccination records and reducing the duplicate data entry burden on providers.

Direct funding to state and local CDC Immunization Program grantees with IIS


will be used to plan, enhance, adopt, and apply ONC endorsed health information technology standards for direct health care system interoperability.

Enhanced EHR-IIS interoperability will improve the completeness of immunization histories available to clinicians and public health, improve the timeliness of immunization data submission to an IIS, improve the quality of IIS coverage assessments, and the data available to other public health systems (e.g.

vaccine preventable disease surveillance units).

Improved interoperability will also reduce extra immunization, thereby saving time and resources.
