Tennessee’s Immunization Registry is a secure, centralized database that contains records of vaccines given to Tennessee residents in health departments and participating provider offices.
By using etHIN’s Immunization Gateway, providers can automatically submit information on vaccinations performed at their locations, without logging into the State portal to upload records. etHIN is working with the TN Department of Health to allow etHIN users to access records that already reside in the Registry, as long their particular EMR system supports that functionality.
Having complete immunization records allows providers to:
- Easily determine which inoculations are due.
- Prevent unnecessary or duplicate vaccinations.
- Give immunization records to their patients on-demand for school, camp, daycare enrollment and personal records.
- Save administrative time and costs from requesting records from the Registry through traditional means.
