Axion Health's ReadySet Software Provides Robust Vaccination Management to Meet Government Recommendations for Computerized Solutions
Dec 14, 2011 (04:12 PM EST)


DENVER, Dec. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- In a recently published Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) on immunization recommendations for health-care personnel (HCP), MMWR states, "HICPAC {Healthcare Infection Control Practices Advisory Committee} and CDC have recommended that secure, preferably computerized, systems should be used to manage vaccination records for HCP so records can be retrieved easily as needed."

"Accurate vaccination records can help to rapidly identify susceptible HCP (i.e., those with no history of vaccination or lack of documentation of immunity) during an outbreak situation and can help reduce costs and disruptions to health-care operations," additionally stated in MMWR.

Axion Health's ReadySet is one of the only Web-Based solutions that completely manages vaccination programs, resulting in increased compliance (often at 90+%), real-time accurate reporting, minimized duplicate clinical tests, and reduced data entry time.

ReadySet captures all data recommended by CDC, HICPAC, and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. These data include: history, immunity status, vaccine manufacturer and lot number, and vaccination date. Records are kept automatically in a secure, online employee health file.

Axion Health is also the only company in field of workforce health management software that maintains a medical advisory board of nationally recognized knowledge leaders, plus a full-time medical content team. Both are led by Dr. Lee Newman, CEO of Axion Health and Professor at the Colorado School of Public Health and School of Medicine. The team regularly reviews clinical and regulatory literature, vaccine package inserts, and government guidelines to seamlessly integrate new and revised information into ReadySet's Clinical Decision Support tools.
