Major Challenges Facing Immunization Programs in Leveraging Registry Data

The data in your system are continually updated and changing. You need flexibility to conduct on-the-fly investigations and you need the capability to drill down into the data ad-hoc.

There are data with many co-variables of interest which can be combined in multiple ways.

There are different types of information you want to extract, including:

  • Immunization data, such as coverage rates, on-schedule vaccinations, contraindications, and their trends.
  • Information on data quality, such as missing field values, and transcription (manual) errors.
  • Information on registry user(s), including user activities, staff assignments, electronic messages (successful vs. erroneous transmissions).
  • Program Evaluation metrics, including metrics to satisfy grant activities and progress toward program-specific goals.

SMaRT Addresses these Challenges

  • Strategy Map shows progress toward meeting the overall goals and objectives of your program.
  • Metrics Watch shows recent trends in key performance indicators designed for your specific program goals.
  • Color Map shows both areas of need and those meeting needs, according to your program’s key performance indicators.
  • Workboard Canvases provide interactive dashboards that allow ad-hoc data drill-down to investigate areas of need regarding any of the information listed above.
