9/21/2021: Release v1.30.1

COVID-19 Update:

  • This release includes the following COVID-19 updates:
    • Added additional support and logic in ICE to handle the following:
      • COVID-19 Additional Dose - a dose administered when the immune response to a standard primary vaccine series is likely not to be protective.
        • Note - Alternatively, a “booster” dose of vaccine is a dose administered to restore protection after the effectiveness of protection from the primary series has declined. Once FDA approval is granted and ACIP recommendations are published in regards to "booster" doses, ICE will be updated accordingly; updates will likely be included in the next release of ICE. 
      • COVID-19 Vaccines Not Authorized by FDA, but Authorized by WHO
        • Note - The previous version of ICE, Version 1.29.1 supports the handling of one COVID-19 vaccine that falls under this category - AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine (CVX 210).

    • ACIP continues to recommend that all adults aged ≥65 years receive 1 dose of PPSV23. A single dose of PPSV23 is recommended for routine use among all adults aged ≥65 years.
    • Reference MMWR, November 22, 2019, Vol. 68, No. 46 for additional information.

DTP Update

  • Fixes a bug, where in certain rare circumstances, for patients >= 7 years, ICE was not applying the minimum age override of 7 years to calculate the earliest date. 

Influenza Update

  • Fixes a bug, where in certain circumstances, incorrect results may have been returned if ICE was not running on a server with its clock set to an east coast timezone. (Shots may incorrectly have been reported as OUTSIDE_FLU_SEASON when they were not.)

General Update

  • Version of ICE Output in Response - ICE now outputs the version of the service in the response. See Version Number in the Response Message for details.
  • Month-Based Forecast Calculation - ICE General Rules regarding the calculation of month-based forecasts have been updated to align with CDSi's method of calculating month-based forecasts. According to CDC: Guidance in CDSi Logic Specification, General Date Rules, CALCDT-5: A computed date which is not a real date must be moved forward to first day of the next month.
    • The ICE General Rules that have been updated are:
      • How to Calculate Recommended Age Using Calendar Months:
        • Original - When calculating recommended age using calendar months, if the date of birth anniversary day does not exist (because the anniversary month has fewer than 31 days), use the last day of the anniversary month. For example, if a patient was born on 12/31/2012 and dose 1 is recommended at 4 months, the due date would be 4/30/2013.
        • New - When calculating recommended age using calendar months, if the date of birth anniversary day does not exist (because the anniversary month has fewer than 31 days), use the first day of the next month. For example, if a patient was born on 12/31/2012 and dose 1 is recommended at 4 months, the due date would be 5/1/2013.
      • How to Calculate Recommended Interval Using Calendar Months:
        • Original - When calculating recommended interval using calendar months, if the anniversary day does not exist (because the anniversary month has fewer than 31 days), use the last day of the anniversary month.
        • New - When calculating recommended interval using calendar months, if the anniversary day does not exist (because the anniversary month has fewer than 31 days), use the first day of the next month. 
  • Dose Override FeatureNew Optional Feature. If this option is set to "Y" in the ice.properties file, the Dose Override Feature enables a client application to manually flag any administered shot as Invalid, Valid, or Accepted for any request it sends to the ICE service. 
    • This gives the client application the ability to “force” ICE to evaluate the shot as denoted by the client application.
    • In addition to the evaluation status (i.e. - “Invalid”, “Valid” or “Accepted”), the client application may provide one or more evaluation reason codes with the administered shot. The evaluation reason code(s) must be a code in the Evaluation Reason Code code system listed in the ICE Implementation Guide and on the Wiki.
    • When an evaluation is provided by the client application, ICE will simply skip the evaluation of the shot and return the same data in the response that was provided to it in the request. In addition, ICE will take into account the evaluation status of the manually evaluated shot when evaluating other shots that may be impacted by it (e.g. - live virus interval or other vaccines that may be impacted).”

  • Output Supplemental Text Feature - New Optional Feature. If this option is set to "Y" in the ice.properties file, ICE may return supplemental text in the response. This is currently being used by the Pneumococcal Vaccine Group for shared clinical decision making in the recommendation (interpretation element). The Pneumococcal Vaccine Group rules page specifies the circumstances in which this occurs. (If the option is disabled, Pneumococcal will still operate correctly; applications simply won't benefit from additional text which may be displayed on the screen.)
  • "361 days" to "1 year - 4 days" - Updated all instances of "361 days" to "1 year - 4 days" in the ICE3 rules to align with CDSi. This update affects the following vaccine groups: DTP, Hep A, Hib, MMR, Pneumococcal, and Varicella.

10/15/2019: Release v1.21.1

HPV Update

  • Updated HPV rules as per the June 2019 ACIP Vote:
    • Harmonized recommendation for catch-up vaccination for males and females through age 26 years who are not adequately vaccinated.
    • Recommends vaccination based on shared clinical decision making for individuals aged 27 through 45 years who are not adequately vaccinated. 

General Update

  • A duplicate shot/same day fix whereby, in certain circumstances, a non-combination shot might be selected instead of the combination shot.
  • Slight change to the way the dose number included in the vMR output is determined. The dose number represents the targeted number of the dose in the series, whether the dose is valid or invalid (so, for instance, both a "valid" second dose following an invalid second dose will have dose number 2 indicated). However, if the patient has passed the eligible last date for a particular dose (e.g., Hib, Pneumococcal) and receives a subsequent dose, the dose number of that subsequent dose will indicate the count of actual doses received and will not consider the earlier dose that was missed which cannot now be administered.

Zoster Update

  • Added rule "Recommended Interval After Adult Varicella (CVX 21) Doses"
    • If patient is administered adult varicella (CVX 21) doses, the minimum interval and recommended interval between the adult varicella (CVX 21) doses to Zoster is 8 weeks. 
    •  Example:
      • Varicella (CVX 21) at 50 years, 1 month.
      • Varicella (CVX 21) at 50 years, 3 months. 
      • Recommend Zoster (CVX 187) at Varicella Dose 2 + recommended interval (8 weeks)
