Refugee Immunization Information Systems Exchange (RIISE) Project
- The RIISE Project makes refugee vaccination records readily available for local medical providers caring for refugees. This project enables providers to better assess immunization coverage rates among refugees, thereby ensuring more complete vaccine uptake among refugee communities.
- RIISE is a collaborative project designed to support transfer of refugee vaccination data from the Electronic Disease Notification (EDN) System into Immunization Information Systems (IIS).
- Each state refugee health coordinator works closely with state IIS users to ensure the successful transmission of refugee vaccination information into their respective state IIS
- The RIISE Project transmits refugee vaccination data from the EDN system into state IIS via one of two transport methods: PHINMS Messaging System or an EDN system feature called data download.
- Children meet local vaccination requirements for school entry
- Refugees are appropriately vaccinated
- Vaccination records move more quickly and with fewer data quality errors
- Electronic vaccination record transfer is streamlined between health information systems
- The integration of more refugee vaccination records into health information systems may lead to better immunization coverage for the community
