On November 19, Sirona Strategies held a webinar on the health IT infrastructure behind COVID-19 Vaccine Reporting. The webinar featured Susan Pierce-Richards, Vaccine Task Force, Monitoring and Assessment Team, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Rebecca Coyle, Executive Director, American Immunization Registry Association, and Hans Buitendijk, Cerner, and Chair of the EHRA Executive Committee.

The speakers discussed how state-based Public Health Immunization Information Systems, providers and EHR vendors are preparing the data infrastructure necessary to handle the new reporting, and how new systems like the federal Vaccine Administration Management System play a role.

The slides from the webinar can be found here, with the exception of Ms. Pierce-Richards. Her slides can only be found in the recording of the webinar. If you would like to learn more about state plans, please click this link to view the Sirona Strategies COVID-19 State Vaccine Plan Tracker.
