As electronic medical records have come into more general use, medical information has become increasingly portable, personalized, and participatory. This has begun to stimulate patients to become more involved in their own health care. Immunization is an area for which a mobile solution could be very useful. E-Immunization card is essentially an extended function of the National Immunization Information System. And while NIIS has been successfully implemented nationwide in Vietnam, e-Immunization card should be amplified throughout the country. Our findings show that the mobile app can contribute to the continuity of care for each child throughout the immunization schedule. Empowering caregivers/parents with knowledge and useful tools will help improve overall immunization coverage.
