Immunization Information Systems (IIS)
As a part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), the meaningful use initiative requires participating healthcare providers to meet established public health criteria to receive EHR-MU incentives. One of three possible public health components involves testing and establishing a connection from the provider site EHR to the appropriate Immunization Information System (IIS). There are three stages of implementation for meaningful use that will span several years, with Stage 1 beginning in 2011.
