Understanding the benefits and challenges of electronic immunisation registries.
HOW YOU CAN USE THESE MATERIALS:
Effective and accurate reporting systems are key to sustainable and equitable coverage. Country stakeholders can take some of the lessons learned from others to facilitate a smooth transition from paper-based to electronic systems.
The Linked Immunisation Action Network held a virtual learning engagement for countries in the Asia Pacific and Europe-Central Asia regions to gain a deeper understanding of electronic immunisation registries. The learning engagement aimed to answer the following learning objectives:
- What are the benefits and lessons learnt from using electronic immunisation registries, including those developed for COVID-19 vaccination, for routine immunisation?
- What are the implementation challenges (finance, technical expertise, training, digital infrastructure, etc.)?
- How do you facilitate a smooth transition from an existing paper-based system to an EIR?
- How are EIRs implemented and managed when health delivery is largely the responsibility of the subnational level?
