Massachusetts Immunization Information System (MIIS)

In June 2010, legislation was passed charging the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) to establish a statewide lifespan immunization registry. One year later, in February 2011, MDPH launched the Massachusetts Immunization Information System (MIIS). The MIIS is a secure and confidential web-based system capable of accepting immunization information through electronic data exchange with electronic health records systems (EHR) or by direct data entry into the online user interface.

The primary benefits of the MIIS are access to shared, consolidated patient immunization records, customized provider and patient reports, improved clinical decision-making through the use of advanced immunization forecasting functionality, practice and vaccine management tools, and overall enhanced infrastructure for efficient disease control and surveillance.
