The summit brought partners together to learn about and collaborate on high-priority public health information challenges. Partners from public health agencies, healthcare providers, community-based organizations, academic and research institutions, technology vendors, industry, and other organizations invested in health data challenges were present.
The sessions during the CDC event showcased the strategic direction, major areas of work, and priorities of the organization and gave partners a chance to share their valuable services. The highlight was multiple panel discussions featuring esteemed leaders from both public health and industry. Participants got to connect and network with like-minded individuals.
Mike Berry from HLN Consulting presented on “A Shared Service Architecture for Immunization Information System Data Exchange”. The session described a shared service architecture that leverages IIS’ existing HL7 interfaces to provide a common software layer, deployed to multiple IIS via a cloud-based container registry. The adoption of the architecture by IIS in two jurisdictions – the Rhode Island Department of Health’s KIDSNET/RICAIR and NYC’s CIR – to provide a shared solution for interfacing with the CDC’s Immunization Gateway was discussed.
