COVID-19 Vaccine Guidance

MEDITECH shares COVID-19 vaccine guidance

MEDITECH provides guidance in preparation for new COVID-19 immunizations.

 | 

As the CDC works with stakeholders to prepare for the release of a COVID-19 vaccine, MEDITECH is sharing guidance to help make healthcare organizations aware of what steps they can take to be ready for administering them when they become available.  

These preparations include performing Formulary Service Vendor (FSV) updates for drug data availability or, if necessary, manually setting up supporting drug dictionaries. MEDITECH also provides guides for creating new immunizations to ensure administered vaccines are accurately recorded in the EHR and can be sent to your state's Immunization Information System (IIS) interface. 

To receive updates directly from the CDC regarding the availability of new vaccines, subscribe to the CDC CVX Code Set page. You can also subscribe to the MEDITECH COVID-19 Resources page and MEDITECH COVID-19 Regulatory Resources page for more information. MEDITECH is continuously monitoring updates from the CDC and HHS, and will publish information as it is received.
