December 9: Webcast - Immunization Information System (IIS) Interjurisdictional Data Sharing: Addressing Technical and Legal Barriers

Immunization Information Systems are key to maintaining and improving vaccination coverage and reducing vaccine preventable diseases in the United States. Integrating the current IIS infrastructure to exchange information across federal, state and local jurisdictions will lead to more effective surveillance, better immunization planning and ultimately healthier communities.
The Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) in 2014 convened a group of stakeholders, including the immunization manager, registry manager, state health official/senior deputy, legal counsel and information technology staff from North Dakota, Idaho, Colorado, Michigan, and Minnesota to discuss solutions and identify a plan forward to address technical and legal IIS interstate data exchange barriers. ASTHO then collaborated with the Partnership for Public Health Law and the Network for Public Health Law to develop a template IIS interjurisdictional data sharing memorandum of understanding (MOU).
This webinar provides an opportunity for public health professionals, including immunization program managers, IIS program staff, public health attorneys, and privacy officers to learn about state-specific issues related to IIS interjurisdictional sharing, the template MOU, and possible implementation steps.
