Purpose/Objectives: In 2015, the Canadian Immunization Registry Network (CIRN) committed to revising the 2002 Functional Standards and Minimum (Core) Data Sets for a National Immunization Registry Network. In 2016 CIRN will be publishing Functional and Data Element Standards for a National Network of Immunization Registries. The standards will be developed in collaboration with provincial and territitorial (PT) stakeholders and members of CIRN. The adoption of Functional and Data Element Standards will enable PTs to generate coverage reports that can be aggregated from local to PT and national levels. Methodology/Approach: CIRN members, which include PT stakeholders as well as other partners such as Canada Health Infoway, have been working together to form the national standards. The target audience for the standards themselves will be the PTs involved in the development, implementation and application of immunization registries, the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) in its ongoing support of an immunization registry network in Canada, and partners with an interest in the immunization registry landscape. Finding/Results: CIRN will be publishing two key documents in 2016: Functional Standards for a National Network of Immunization Registries in Canada Canadian Data Element Standards for a National Network of Immunization Registries Conclusion/Implication/Recommendations: A vision for a national network of immunization registries is immunization information stored in PT registries that is seamlessly captured and aggregated as accurate national immunization coverage rates. Currently Canada's immunization coverage is measured as estimates using national surveys, which has limitations. A clearer picture of immunization coverage at all levels of governments will inform future research by identifying areas and populations of low and under immunization, thus facilitating evidence-based program development to ensure health equity is reached with immunization in Canada. 140 Character Summary: Nationally supported immunization registry standards will facilitate the seamless capture of accurate aggregated national immunization coverage rates.
