AUSTRALIAN IMMUNISATION REGISTER AUDIT PROJECT
5th October 2017
The National Centre for Immunisation Research and Surveillance (NCIRS) is undertaking an audit study to assess the effectiveness of the data recording, handling and transfer of immunisation encounters to the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) and identify any barriers for the timeliness and accuracy of data. South Western Sydney PHN will be working in partnership with the NCIRS Audit Project Team. Read how this may involve your practice here. A random selection from the Australian Immunisation Register of overdue children will be followed up by the SWSPHN staff within the South Western Sydney area. Providers within your practice may be contacted by phone during the next month to complete an audit tool for children deemed overdue in your practice. Data transfer to the Australian Immunisation register has at times been a hassle so hopefully the NCIRS Air Data project will produce a report to assist with improving the way data is recorded, transferred and handled at both ends of the system. Please note: All data collected from practices will be deidentified prior to submission to the NCIRS for correlation. For more information contact your PSO.
