DOHMH COVID-19 Vaccination Plan- Round 3 Supplemental Gotham Center, LIC

The mission of the DOHMH Bureau of Immunization (BOI) is to prevent the occurrence and transmission of vaccine-preventable diseases, such as hepatitis A, hepatitis B, measles, mumps, influenza, human papillomavirus, and invasive pneumococcal disease, through immunization. To help ensure that all New Yorkers receive recommended vaccines, BOI maintains the Citywide Immunization Registry (CIR), a database of immunizations used to track the immunization status of children and adults and to monitor immunization levels in the population. To improve reporting to the CIR by healthcare providers, the BOI established a Health Level 7 (HL7) Web Service to support real-time, bidirectional immunization data exchange with Electronic Health Records (EHRs). Over 85% of immunizations are reported to the CIR by providers directly from their Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems through the HL7 Web Service.



The Interoperability Data Analyst position is responsible for establishing and managing connections between the CIR HL7 Web Service and EHR systems and improving the quality of data reported to the CIR. This includes working closely with medical providers and EHR vendors, conducting all testing associated with provider onboarding, and monitoring and correcting data quality issues. This work is required to ensure all vaccine doses administered in NYC are reported to the CIR in a timely manner and compliance with standards.



  • Onboard immunization data exchange partners such as hospital departments, pharmacies, schools, managed care organizations, primary care providers, and local/state/federal agencies to the CIR's Health Level 7 (HL7) Web Service, including testing partner's ability to communicate with CIR using HL7 messaging.
  • Work with immunizing providers and their EHR vendors to ensure real-time, complete, and accurate reporting of routine and non-routine vaccine doses to the CIR.
  • Lead and manage data exchange activities and interoperability projects such as immunizing provider onboarding and troubleshooting of issues through technical and customer support. 
  • Assist the Interoperability Unit Chief with project management activities related to CIR’s adherence to internal and national standards and onboarding of partners via the CDC Immunization Gateway.
  • Analyze HL7 message data format issues and any interface failures with the CIR, and work with immunizing data exchange partners, their vendors, and the internal support team to resolve.
  • Maintain data exchange partner onboarding documentation and issue tracking to ensure consistency across all internal applications (MS Teams, CRM, etc.).
  • Run standard and ad-hoc data queries/reports to monitor and validate data quality and connectivity status of newly onboarded data exchange partners as well as existing ones. Develop and improve these data monitoring and validation reports as necessary.
  • Conduct analyses and create visualizations to identify gaps in the completeness and accuracy of immunization data reported via the HL7 Web Service.
  • Perform regression testing by assisting with developing, documenting, and executing test cases and document results of quality assurance (QA) testing.
  • Collaborate with IT consultants and BOI staff to research, develop, test, and implement enhancements to the CIR's HL7 Web Service to better align with the national standards.
  • Assist the Unit Chief in developing and updating operational processes, HL7 implementation and onboarding documentation, website, and training materials.
  • Participate in research projects designed to measure and improve CIR data quality, including preparation of abstracts, articles, or presentations for national, regional, and local publications, conferences, and meetings.
