All data exchange participants will need to use real-time web services. With web services, uploads occur automatically, so as soon as Florida SHOTS receives the records from your EHR, the shots are processed immediately! This means your office can instantly create and print the DH Form 680 and immunization history forms without duplicate data entry.
If your office is currently using a “batch” process to upload your immunizations, make sure to contact your software provider to ask about real-time and bi-directional web services. Your EHR company will need to move to real-time web services for your shots to upload and post. As we move through the process of transitioning all uploads to web services, our Florida SHOTS Data Team will be working closely with practices to ensure a smooth transition.
