Albany, NY, (PRWEB) November 26, 2013
iPatientCare, Inc., a pioneer in mHealth and cloud-based ambulatory EHR and integrated Practice Management solutions announced successful certification of its EHR by the New York Immunization Information System, New York Department of Health. This achievement will allow iPatientCare users to both submit and import immunization data electronically and directly from iPatientCare EHR, definitely one of the most unique features provided by an ambulatory EHR.
The New York State Department of Health's (NYSDOH) Bureau of Immunization is committed to promoting the health of New York State children by reducing and/or eliminating the number of vaccine preventable diseases that affect the State's children. The goal of the new immunization information system is to establish a complete, accurate, secure, real-time immunization medical record that is easily accessible and promotes public health by fully immunizing all individuals appropriate to age and risk. New York State Immunization Information System (NYSIIS), in conjunction with the legislative mandate, strongly supports the NYSDOH Bureau of Immunization's objective to meet the Center for Disease Control's (CDC) Healthy People goal of 95% of children less than six years of age enrolled in an Immunization Information System with two or more shots.
“As the nation’s leading EHR vendor, iPatientCare meets the criteria for submitting a child’s immunization data in HL7 2.5.1 to NYSIIS and also importing the vaccination history provided by NYSIIS into iPatientCare EHR. This is aligned with the Meaningful Use Stage 2 requirement for an electronic interface to an Immunization Registry. By any standard, this is a very unique achievement and we are very proud of having achieved this certification.” said Shahab Shaikh, Enterprise Integration Specialist, iPatientCare.

About NYSIIS :
NYSIIS is a free, web-based statewide immunization information system, also known as a registry, which maintains computerized immunization data of persons of all ages in a confidential and secure manner.
A statewide immunization information system will serve as a repository to aid, coordinate, and promote cost-effective disease prevention and control efforts in New York State. By two years of age, more than 20 percent of the children in the U.S. have seen more than one health care provider. As a result, multiple medical records are created and parents often lack a complete and accurate record of their children's immunization status. An IIS acts as a connection between the multiple providers a family may have and keeps track of which immunizations have already been given, and which ones are needed. An IIS helps sustain high immunization rates and low disease levels with more efficient management of information. It will also save money by ensuring that children get only the vaccines they need and improve office efficiency by reducing the time needed to gather and review immunization records.
