Managing public health data: mobile applications and mass vaccination campaigns

AbstractIn response to data collection challenges during mass immunization events, Denver Public Health developed a mobile application to support efficient public health immunization and prophylaxis activities. The Handheld Automated Notification for Drugs and Immunizations (HANDI) system has been used since 2012 to capture influenza vaccination data during Denver Health ’s annual employee influenza campaign. HANDI has supported timely and efficient administration and reporting of influenza vaccinations through standardized data capture and database entry. HANDI’s mobility allows employee work locations and schedules to be accommodated without the need for a pap er-based data collection system and subsequent manual data entry after vaccination. HANDI offers a readily extensible model for mobile data collection to streamline vaccination documentation and reporting, while improving data quality and completeness.
