Post Immunizations Administered by Pharmacy back to EHR

When a pharmacy like CVS or Walgreen's gives a patient a vaccinations, i.e. Zoster, flu, pneumonia shots, they send documentation by fax. Typically, they send the type of vaccination, dose, injection site, route , Lot #,, Manufacturer, date administered, and expiration date of the vaccine. It would help us a great deal if this could be provided automatically from the pharmacy without us having to re-key the information.

Hi Dr. Green,

Unfortunately, Surescripts, the nation’s e-prescribing integration network, does not provide this kind of data to flow back from pharmacies at this time. With enough support for this request, we can propose this kind of functionality to them, though.

    In Northwest Iowa the pharmacies are good about faxing a note to us when they have given a vaccine. It's more paper but it works at the moment. Integration would be wonderful.
