CDSi Training Courses

Did you miss a Clinical Decision Support for Immunization (CDSi) training session or need a refresher? Are you new to CDSi? For technical details as well as background information, see this series of videos created during the Spring of 2013.

The 5 CDSi video presentations mix lecture, real-life examples, and interactive learning with quizzes to test knowledge gained.

  • Audience: You may learn from this video series if you are part of the IIS, EHR and HIE communities, including program managers, business analysts, technical architects, and developers with interest in clinical and IT aspects of immunization evaluation and forecasting.
  • Objectives: Upon completing the series, you’ll have an understanding of CDSi artifacts which encompass immunization evaluation and forecasting and these artifacts could be applied in your own environment.
  • Prerequisites: There are no prerequisites, but you’ll benefit more if you have a basic understanding of immunization evaluation, forecasting, and the ACIP childhood and adult immunization recommended schedules. See other background courses.
  • Equipment: You need a computer or tablet with internet connection. The video files are large and make take time to buffer; they should play on all platforms.
