Provider Organization Onboarding for IIS Course

The onboarding process requires specialized staff to guide and assist providers and their electronic health record (EHR) technical teams. These staff manage and monitor onboarding activities, develop and maintain onboarding documentation and processes, review HL7 messages submitted during the onboarding testing phase, and identify and assist in correcting errors that may occur.

To be successful in this onboarding role, immunization information system (IIS) staff must have adequate knowledge, skills, and abilities to complete activities associated with the onboarding process. This means that staff involved are trained in and have knowledge of onboarding, interoperability, HL7, and data quality best practices.

IIS Orientation to Provider Onboarding: Resources Checklist

AIRA has compiled a list of resources in the IIS Orientation to Provider Onboarding: Resources Checklist to serve as a starting point for staff who are new to an IIS onboarding role and/or are new to interoperability as it relates to immunization messaging. This checklist supports IIS staff in their provider-onboarding process (i.e., the process of establishing and testing a data exchange interface between an electronic health record (EHR) system and an IIS).
