Clinical Decision Support for Immunization (CDSi)

Issued on June 1, 2015 by CDC

Immunization clinical decision support (CDS), more commonly referred to as evaluation and forecasting, is an automated process that determines the recommended immunizations needed for a patient and delivers these recommendations to the healthcare provider.The CDSi Logic Specification provides a single, authoritative, implementation-neutral foundation for development and maintenance of CDS engines. It captures ACIP recommendations in an unambiguous manner and improves both the uniform representation of vaccine decision guidelines, as well as the ability to automate vaccine evaluation and forecasting.
