A brief review of vaccination coverage in immunization registries.

Author: Goldstein- Neal D & Maiese- Brett a

Abstract

Immunization registries are effective electronic tools for assessing vaccination coverage- but are only as good as the information reported to them. This review summarizes studies through August 2010 on vaccination coverage in registries and identifies key characteristics of successful registries. Based on the current state of registries- paper-based charts combined with electronic registry reporting provide the most cohesive picture of coverage. To ultimately supplant paper charts- registries must exhibit increased coverage and participation.
