Project Description

Programmatic Assistance and Support for the Immunization Activities of CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases

United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has awarded The Cloudburst Group a task order to provide programmatic assistance and support to CDC in its partnership with the Indian Health Service (IHS) for the immunization activities of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases (NCIRD), Immunization Services Division (ISD), Program Operations Branch. Cloudburst will assist IHS in preventing disease, implementing an effective immunization system and raising and sustaining vaccine coverage for the American Indian/Alaska Native population.

Our staff manage the IHS immunization reporting process as well as provide coordination and support for the web-based IHS immunization. Staff provides assistance and advice in the collection and monitoring of quarterly and annual immunization data, compiling childhood and adolescent immunization reports and annual immunization reports from each IHS area, distributing quarterly and annual reports on immunization coverage for the IHS, and analyzing immunization program data to identify problems and trends in immunization coverage.

In addition, we provide coordination and support for the web-based IHS immunization and reporting system including coordinating meetings of a user group to identify needed upgrades and enhancements to the system, coordinating trainings on the system for all IHS and tribal users, and providing technical assistance to the users of the system. We coordinate with an on-site Division and with area offices bringing together The Cloudburst Group’s depth in providing technical consulting support particularly around using existing and emerging technology to guide users on data collection and utilization, and experience in providing the CDC with on-site program assistance and consultation.
