Vaccination Data Model

Posted March 27, 2017
By Julia Zehel

This data model provides data exchange regarding all vaccinations administered in the hospital setting and also those administered and documented at home within your application. This model is intended to be used for recent administration of new vaccines and does not function as a historical record of prior vaccinations.

Functionality: Read and/or Write
Type: Event Based

Key Information Included:
  • Patient identifiers and demographics
  • Vaccine product information: product code, description, lot number, manufacturer
  • Vaccine administration details: site, dose

The Vaccination data model can be used in the clinic or outpatient setting to pass back home vaccine administration information from an application to the EHR.

In the hospital or inpatient setting, this model could be used to update an application when vaccinations are given at discharge from the hospital.
