Immunization Patient Registry with Integrated Technology (ImmPRINT) is a statewide population-based information system for all children born in Alabama since January 1, 1993. Vaccine histories are also available for patients of all ages if they have been to a county health department or see a private provider enrolled in ImmPRINT.
ImmPRINT Enrollment Benefits
- Print only ADPH approved Certificate of Immunization
- See Vaccine Forecaster to ensure the best medical decision
- Run HL7 Reports to ensure all vaccine administered is transmitted
Questions a provider is supposed to ask their EHR vendor prior to picking an EHR:
- Has the EHR passed Testing and signed DSA with ImmPRINT?
- Does the EHR product has bidirectional functionality?
- ImmPRINT requires real time transmission, what is the estimated time lag for data transmission?
- If needed, can the EHR transmit all the vaccine records present in the EHR prior to the interface setup?

Healthcare Providers: Be the Boss of Your EHR!
- Providers pay their vendors for their EHR (Electronic Health Record).
- Provider/staff must verify what their vendor is doing or not doing.
- Provider/staff is the only entity that can ensure its vendor's compliance.
- IMM will support providers/staff to "Be the Boss" by scheduling a three-way conference call with the provider, the vendor, and the ImmPRINT staff. To schedule a conference call, email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
