Abstract

Collection of timely and accurate immunization information is essential for effective immunization programs. Current immunization information systems have important limitations that impact the ability to collect this data. Based on our experience releasing a national immunization app we describe a cloud-based platform that would allow individuals to store their records digitally and exchange these records with public health information systems thus improving the quality of immunization information held by individuals and public health officials.
