Key takeaways for developing COVID vaccine management

The COVID-19 pandemic has claimed over 1 million lives and created 38 million cases worldwide to date. That is far too many. While the scientific community and countless clinical trials do all they can to get a safe vaccine approved and into the market, the entire healthcare space at large must prepare for a dizzying maze of immunization logistics. As this blog series has shown, there are many new considerations, concerns, and functionalities an effective COVID-19 vaccine management program must address.

This introduces more self-service capabilities that eventually free up the time of service providers like vaccination clinic nurses, doctors, public health caseworkers, or customer service reps, which means that they have increased availability to focus on providing top-notch citizen services. Equally, it benefits the heavy backend duties (e.g., inventory management, order submission, vaccine allocation, routine data capture, report submission, record-keeping, or data analysis) by systematically reducing the number of…
