Benefits of ALERT IIS

“It may be difficult to pinpoint the importance of ALERT IIS in your everyday practice until a new patient transfers into the clinic and has no record of their immunizations. If you can access their immunization record on ALERT IIS you are way ahead of the game.”
Ceil Colburn R.N., B.S.N., Clackamas site manager, Metropolitan Pediatrics
