Rochester RHIO is helping the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) assess the impact of HPV vaccinations by contributing EHR patient data to researchers.
The CDC-sponsored project is spearheaded by the Center for Community Health and Prevention of the University of Rochester. To assist researchers, the New York regional health information exchange (HIE) is providing anonymized clinical data about cervical cancer screenings and trends from around the area.
In addition to RHIO, researchers are also utilizing data from California, Connecticut, Oregon, and Tennessee for use in the HPV Vaccine Impact Monitoring Project (HPV-IMPACT).
