#NHITWeek Enabling Patients with Immunization Data via #BlueButton

Rebecca Fish, Sr Policy Advisor, National Vaccine Program Office.

Provide faster, simpler access to vaccine history

  • Messaging and Promotion
  • Technology

20-50,000 people per year die from vaccine preventable diseases.

It looks like this will encourage doctors to sign up and then patients will use BlueButton to download their official vaccination record.

This is a really cool initiative that can make a big difference for families.
