Patient Status in Immunization Information Systems

The main purpose of the guide is to bridge the gap between currently published guidance on patient status and its actual implementation by IIS. This guide offers practical guidelines for providers, public health entities, and IIS to use in implementing and managing patient status. Challenges and recommendations related to IIS functionality, ease of use, implementation, and policy are described for both provider and geographic jurisdiction level issues. A secondary purpose of the guide is to address the issue of denominator inflation experienced by many IIS.
