Wondering how you can use CAIR if you already use an electronic heatlh/medical record (EHR/EMR) system? It's easy to do and your practice may qualify for incentive payments from CMS for reporting immunizations to CAIR. View the 5 Steps to Data Exchange page for guidance on how your EHR can submit electronic data to CAIR. If you have questions, contact the CAIR Data Exchange Help Desk.
Seven of the 9 CAIR regional registries (NorCal, Gr.Sacramento, Bay Area, Central Coast, Central Valley, LA-Orange, and Inland Empire) can now receive immunization data from you EHR via the CDPH HIE Gateway/CAIR IZ Portal. You must register at the Gateway/Portal if you intend to submit immuniztiton data to any of those 7 CAIR registries, even if you already participate in CAIR. For more information and a link to Gateway registration, click here.
For information on submitting data to CAIR San Diego (SDIR), CAIR San Joaquin (RIDE), or Imperial county, refer to the Local Data Exchange Representatives page for contact information.
