On November 6, 2023, HLN released a new version (v1.41.1) of the Immunization Calculation Engine (ICE) to several vaccine groups. 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.
Version 1.41.1 includes updates to the Pneumococcal vaccine group to add support for 20-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV20) use in children. See the Release Notes for additional details. There are no changes to the ICE Implementation Guide with this release. A Google Sheet that lists all of the coded values in the Implementation Guide is also available.
The ICE team is continuing work on enhancements to address new recommendations for COVID-19 and RSV. Releases with support for these changes are forthcoming.
