On August 28, 2019, HLN released a new version (v1.20.1) of the Immunization Calculation Engine (ICE). ICE is a state-of-the-art open-source software system that provides clinical decision support for immunizations for use in Immunization Information Systems (IIS), Electronic Health Record (EHR) and Personal Health Record (PHR) Systems.
This version includes important updates to the DTP Vaccine Group including:
- Updated the Adolescent Tdap Recommendation and Evaluation rules as per the latest Tdap guidance included in the 2019 CDC Immunization Schedule.
- Added a rule requiring that in order for the primary series to be complete via the DTP 3-dose series, at least one of the doses administered must be a pertussis-containing vaccine.
The full software release is available for download at https://cdsframework.atlassian.net/wiki/display/ICE/Downloads. A revised ICE Implementation Guide is also available.
