NCIRD IIS Strategic Plan: Achieving the Vision for the Future
In 2012, NCIRD launched the creation of the IIS Strategic Plan to create a vision for the future—and a path forward—for advancing IIS so that real time, consolidated immunization data and services could be available for authorized clinical, administrative, and public health users and consumers, anytime and anywhere. Comprised of five focus areas, and underlying goals and initiatives, the IIS Strategic Plan is evolving and a priority for the agency.

Immunization information systems (IIS) help providers and families by consolidating immunization information into one reliable source. For more information see:
