Overview of Scenario
The EHR or other clinical software system provides patients and their authorized representatives with electronic access to immunization records (either directly or by interacting with an external system such as a patient portal).
Example of Scenario
Juana Maria Gonzales Morales’ mother logs into Dr. Smith’s EHR patient portal to view Juana Maria’s immunization record.
All products evaluated provide access for patients to view immunization histories on the patient portal. The method for displaying the information on a portal varies by product. Some products include a defined immunization section. Others include the immunization data as part of complete patient summary information, mixing immunizations provided with other health maintenance activities.
Vendors should consider usability evaluation such as User Centered Design (UCD) to evaluate how the system handles notifications and alerts.
- Vendor Perspectives. Vendors should consider usability evaluation such as User Centered Design (UCD) to evaluate how to provide patients access to their immunization records.
- Provider and Implementer Perspectives. Providers should consider participating in vendor activities to address the workflow and challenges of providing patients access to their own immunization records.
