|Additional Information:||Integrate EHR immunization administration codes: To illustrate how and when vaccine-specific administration codes can be incorporated into practice, consider the following scenario: a nurse prepares, scans, and administers the ordered vaccine dose. The bar-code scanner sends a standard vaccine dose code (LOINC, CPT code) and an administration code (CPT code) to the practice management system. The practice management system assigns a usual and customary charge and generates a superbill with the appropriate charges for the patient.|
