Integrated immunization data exchange between pharmacy and state immunization information systems
Scientific Technologies Corporation (STC) is proud to announce that our own Brandy Altstadter will be speaking August 24th on behalf of the American Immunization Registry Association (AIRA). Brandy, along with Amanda Dayton and Jenne McKibben, will be sharing their expertise in public health, specifically focusing on Pharmacy Participation with IIS. AIRA Discovery Sessions are held on the 4th Monday of each month at 4:00 PM ET. These sessions review topic areas relevant for all IIS Managers but specifically target new(er) IIS Managers, staff, and those new to the IIS community. For more information on how to listen to this session, visit http://www.immregistries.org/events/2015/08/24/aira-discovery-session-pharmacy-participation-with-iis. Also, STC will be exhibiting at the NACDS Total Store Expo, showcasing two of our new programs: the Immunization Ambassador program and the All American Flu Fighters program as well as our ImmsLink bi-directional immunization interface. The Total Store Expo is being held in Denver at the Colorado Convention Center from August 22-25. STC will be located at Booth #1115 throughout the expo.
“Pharmacies are a great partner for the IIS and it has been very rewarding to see increased participation in the IIS by pharmacies over the past few years. Pharmacies also represent a unique opportunity to reach adult populations that are often not fully immunized. I’m pleased to be able to talk about these successes and the future opportunities for IIS/Pharmacy partnership at the AIRA Discovery Session on Pharmacy Participation with IIS.” Brandy Altstadter, STC Director of Business Development
