At Stanford Health Care, we were early adopters of the California State Immunization Registry (CAIR) technology supporting a bidirectional HL7 interface with our EHR (second in the state on our EHR platform). We believed the project would be simple and focused on mapping standard CVX (vaccine administered) code sets. Nothing about this project was simple. We will describe our Epic EHR – California Immunization Registry bidirectional HL7 interface project plan from initiation to full implementation including the challenges we faced and ongoing post-implementation issues.

Describe the new knowledge and additional skills the participant will gain after attending your presentation.: We hope lessons learned from our experience will help other health systems succussfully implement this expanded interface capability and improve health information at large.
