Immunization TrackingThat Is Accessible & Compliant
Our Complio system offers you Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.0 Level AA compliance!
Most institutions have strict accessibility requirements for the online platforms that their students and faculty must use. But those requirements are not limited to student learning portals…have you considered the accessibility of your current immunization tracking system?
What is it?
WCAG was developed to set a standard of web content accessibility for individuals with disabilities. As a result of Section 508 of the Americans with Disabilities Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, regulations proposed by the Department of Justice, and federal court decisions interpreting these laws, the websites of universities and other entities serving the public must comply with WCAG 2.0.
Why does it matter?
The WCAG is particularly important in higher education as there has been a rise in ADA-related lawsuits towards colleges and universities. This increase was particularly seen during the Pandemic as many institutions shifted to online learning.

American DataBank has recently completed a rigorous third-party audit of our tools and systems for WCAG compliance. While some of our competitors may say they follow these guidelines, having an actual certification of compliance sets us apart. Complio recently underwent in-depth analysis and development, spanning over 6 months and costing over $20,000 to gain this achievement.
American DataBank believes in inclusivity and wanted to take this proactive step in upgrading our website, allowing all users equal access to Complio. If you would like to learn more about the WCAG and reduce the risk of ADA-related lawsuits and complaints, contact us today.
