Key Person shall be embedded within the Oregon Immunization Program and work in the Project team with the OIS Senior Project Manager. Key Person will provide Project Management Services and Deliverables to OIP to meet the Project goals summarized below.

OIS seeks a Project/Program Manager IV to provide expert support in Microsoft Office 365 for the OIP ALERT IIS Replacement Project.

OIP’s ALERT Immunization Information System (IIS) is a confidential, population-based, computerized database that records all immunization doses administered by participating providers in Oregon. Approximately 90% of all Oregon immunizing providers participate in ALERT IIS. This system is a powerful tool for managing immunization records and supporting healthier communities. ALERT IIS is used for clinical decision making and public health interventions. We have learned in the COVID-19 pandemic that to fight systemic bias we must ensure individuals have access to their own immunization data and that more partners are interested in accessing these data to assist the people they serve.

A new platform for ALERT IIS will be more robust by combining functionality from both Immunization Record Information System (IRIS) and Partner Organization System Tracking (POST) and will include lessons learned from the pandemic to better address emerging events by including consumer access modules and Race, Ethnicity, Language, and Disability (REALD) and Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (SOGI) data elements.

IRIS is a system used to issue exclusion orders and collect statistics for reporting immunization and exemptions rates for schools and children’s facilities statewide. IRIS creates a grant required report that is submitted annually to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). IRIS provides a mechanism for local public health authorities (LPHA) statewide to meet reporting requirements and laws laid out in Oregon Revised Statutes 433.235 to 433.284 as well as in Oregon Administrative Rules 333-050-0010 to 333-050-0140. OIP plans to retire IRIS and integrate most functionality into the new ALERT IIS system.

POST and ALERT IIS are interoperable and share organization-level data. POST is primarily internal facing and is leveraged to collect information about providers participating in OIP programs and is used by most OIP program staff and includes email integration. An external component provides online access to partners to enroll in OIP programs and manages the annual recertification for immunization providers for the Vaccines for Children (VFC), Vaccines for Adults (VAP) partners.

Immunizing providers access ALERT IIS for clinical decision making and can also use built-in functionality to generate a variety of reports on their patient population. They can run reminder recall reports and notices of patients who are current or past due on immunizations. Additionally, ALERT IIS provides schools and childcare centers with on-line access to students’ immunization records and simplifies the enrollment process for parents to comply with Oregon statutes.

Immunization Quality Improvement for Providers (IQIP) is another critical CDC program that supports immunization providers and state immunization programs. The IQIP program is an evidence-based continuous quality improvement process that uses ALERT IIS data for improving immunization rates and practices at the provider level. IQIP serves to assist and support health care providers by identifying opportunities to improve vaccine uptake and to help motivate providers to try new vaccination service delivery strategies and incorporate changes into their current practices.

During large outbreaks, ALERT IIS plays a critical role in responding to vaccine-preventable diseases, such as the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to use by medical providers, ALERT IIS also provided vaccination information to a wide variety of interested parties to help meet their needs and pandemic vaccination data to and from ALERT IIS and was one of the biggest drivers of system growth in the last 2 years.
