  • HL7 v2.8.2 Implementation Guide for Immunization Messagingexternal icon
    This is an HL7 US Realm implementation guide for immunization messaging.  This new standard is not yet recommended by the CDC and AIRA and is reserved for implementation at a future date. This document adopts many of the use cases and requirements of Release 1.5 IG and adapts them for v2.8.2 while simultaneously clarifying and enhancing the requirements.  Several other Guidance Documents (e.g., ACK Guidance) are also now included in the 2.8.2 IG.  The CDC and AIRA will issue guidance at a future date when trading partners may transition to the v2.8.2 standard.  Please send comments and suggestions to Heather Patrick, htx7@cdc.gov.
  • FHIR Immunization Decision Support Forecast IGexternal icon
    Clinical Decision Support for Immunizations is increasingly being used in health information systems to indicate which vaccinations a patient is due for next. Many of these expert systems are built as stand-alone systems that respond to web service requests. While these independent systems have similar requirements and outputs they use different web service standards.

    This project aims to create a common FHIR implementation guide that these expert systems may use to provide a common consistent interface. This common interface will be used for two main purposes:

    • Provide a common interface that health information systems may write to and gain access to their choice of CDS engines.
    • Provide a common interface that may be used for testing and verifying the output of CDS engines.
