Merging Data to Improve Immunization Rates

Minnesota Immunization Council

This multi-county project has identified the need to integrate existing data from a variety of programs to better serve internal customers, local public health agencies, and external customers, like the clients and providers. The project is evaluating an application system that integrates the data from WIC clinics (CHIPS), the state immunization registry (MIIC), and Child & Teen Checkup clinics (Catch3), by reviewing immunization and screening rates, local public health cost savings, and efficient client services.
