    JAM Session: Vaccine Reporting Strategies

    Feb 2, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM (CT)
    This interactive discussion session focuses on COVID-19 vaccine reporting strategies, as well as the testing and reporting practices.

    Topics:
    • Creating a COVID 19 vaccination clinic – internal task force to define process; new nursing note, simplified orders (one for each vaccine-Moderna vs. Pfizer),
    • Clinic registration processes - using CWS to schedule patients, using state department of health for employees (employees in different facility), documented sent to IMMS registry (do not have declination process yet, reporting/data concern)
    • Leveraging Incident Command due to nursing shortage to manage vaccination clinic going forward
    • How does the vaccine data differ between the employee population and patients?
      • What are the reporting responsibilities?
      • External Agencies
      • Internal Departments
      • Community Collaborations
    • What tools are being used to meet the reporting requirements and needs?
    • How is information from various unconnected sources blended together/integrated?
    • Data validation/cleansing – employee legal names versus preferred names; special characters; suffixes
    • BCA Dashboards using external vaccination data
    • Establishing user permissions – limiting employees visible to directors
    • COVID 19 testing - reporting to lab reportables – new COVID codes from value sets mapping needed

    Panelists:
    • Chris Giroux, Manager, Informatics,Data Management and Integration Services, Northwestern Medical Center
    • Pennie LaFlame, System Coordinator, Northwestern Medical Center
