Joint Development & Implementation (JDI) Advisory Workgroup

The JDI Advisory Workgroup strives to broaden and formalize the planning, coordination, and implementation of knowledge transfer regarding best practices for immunization information system (IIS) development and for collaboratively developed products.


The JDI Advisory Workgroup will identify governance structure for supporting a joint/collaborative development process in addition to selecting and implementing a proof-of-concept project. For questions about this advisory workgroup or ways to become involved in AIRA's joint development efforts, please contact Mary Beth Kurilo. See the IIS Joint Development Advisory Workgroup Project Charter for more information about this workgroup.


The JDI Advisory Workgroup includes experts from state and city IIS, vendors/IIS implementers, public health organizations, and CDC.
