The Children and Hoosier Immunization Registry Program (CHIRP) is a secure web-based application that is administered by the Indiana Department of Health (IDH). An immunization registry program is designed to permanently store a person’s immunization records in an electronic format and are confidential as part of the person’s medial record.
Why nursing home providers need access to CHIRP related to COVID-19 vaccinations:
In addition to enhancing care coordination related to COVID-19 vaccinations for current and new admissions, CHIRP is also key to any nursing facility that chooses to directly enroll as a COVID-19 vaccine provider pursuant under IDH’s Phase 2 COVID-19 vaccination guidance.
The Direct Enrollment option allows long-term care facilities to receive COVID-19 vaccinations by enrolling directly at ISDH’s enrollment site (this is different than working with a Long Term Care Pharmacy where the pharmacy handles the vaccination and coordinates with the facility to administer). Under the Direct Enrollment option, the long-term care facility is solely responsible for vaccine ordering, storage, handling, and administration, and for reporting supply and administration information to the state.
