MIROW: Modeling of Immunization Registry Operations Workgroup
AIRA 2017 National Meeting
April 11-13, 2017
NCIRD in partnership with the American Immunization Registry Association (AIRA) is working on an initiative directed at the analysis and improvement of Immunization Information System (IIS) operations. The Modeling of Immunization Registry Operations Workgroup (MIROW) was formed to conduct this work. The goal of this effort is to develop best practice recommendations for IIS operations and processes. It uses a collaborative approach, leveraging Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) from the IIS community to identify and analyze current practices and in a focused, structured process reaches consensus on best practices.
