Nebraska State Immunization Information System (NESIIS)
    Data Exchange

 

Electronic Submission of Immunization Records
 
 
The electronic reporting of immunization data is a public health core objective for eligible hospitals, critical access hospitals (CAH), and eligible professionals attesting to Stage 2 Meaningful Use (MU). 
 
The Nebraska State Immunization Information System (NESIIS) is an immunization system designed to consolidate patient immunization records into one complete, accurate and definitive immunization record.
 
Currently, NESIIS receives data from hospital systems, vital records, local health departments, private providers, public immunization clinics, and other health care facilities. The data provided by NESIIS is intended to give individuals, families and health care professionals the tools needed to make sound medical decisions.
 

NESIIS is able to do the following:

  • Uni-directional Data Exchange
  • Bi-directional Data Exchange

Bi-Directional data exchange is a required measure for Meaningful Use Stage 3, but not any stage prior.  Regardless, NESIIS has been doing true bi-directional exchange with clients since 2012.

What is bi-directional exchange? In order to be bi-directional with NESIIS, you must be able to query patient records in NESIIS from within your EHR interface. An example of this would be pulling up a record in your EHR, then clicking a button to query NESIIS for that same person's record to see if additional information can be found.

Information on bi-directional support is found within our HL7 specifications.

  •  Accept and send HL7 2.3.1 formatted data
  •  Acept and send HL7 2.5.1 formatted data
  •  Accept and send data electronically via PHINMS and SOAP Web Services
