This week, OSEHRA Organizational Member HLN Consulting announced the release of a product Roadmap for its open source Immunization Calculation Engine (ICE). ICE is an award winning, fully configurable vaccine forecasting and decision support web service tool. It provides state-of-the-art clinical decision support for immunizations (CDSi) and can be used in Immunization Information Systems (IIS), Electronic Health Records (EHR), Health Information Exchanges (HIEs), and Personal Health Record (PHR) Systems. The Roadmap released describes modifications that have already been scheduled for inclusion in new releases of ICE in the future as well as ongoing changes that may be required to maintain compliance with Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommendations. HLN hopes this information will assist software vendors and clinical organizations seeking to use ICE to plan for new feature availability.
HLN is an active participant in the OSEHRA Immunization Open Source Project Group. Their years of collaboration with VHA and the OSEHRA community have resulted in a project with VHA that integrates ICE software with VistA that will be deployed system-wide over the next few years.
