Intervention

Paediatricians are offered the software Impfdoc and an instruction for the software free of charge. One group receives the software earlier (intervention group) and one group later (control group). The delay in the distribution of the software depends on the organisation of the instructions. The control group is expected to receive the software 3-6 months later.
