Vaccine Scheduling Software Case Study
Primas helps large medical facility administer COVID vaccine quickly and efficiently
As the CDC prepared for their initial roll-out of the COVID-19 vaccine, a large medical organization in the Pacific Northwest received word that they had been selected as one of the first 150 medical organizations authorized to administer the vaccine. With that news, the organization realized there was no time to waste.
Their first action was a review of their current EMR software to determine if it would accommodate the specific complexities of COVID-19 Vaccine Scheduling:
Self-service and easy for patients and administrators to use
Ability to book both first dose and second dose appointments in one session
Support for multiple vaccine brands and their required timeframes between doses
Real time booking of open slots over multiple sites
Simple implementation taking a short period of time
Patient communications issued via SMS, email and phone
Vaccine shipment tracking from storage facility to vaccination sites
Scheduling of last-minute appointments to ensure that no vaccines are left un-administered
Scheduling flexibility when booking second doses at the same time as first doses
Adherence to regulatory and reporting requirements
Extends the self-service process to rescheduling of appointments
Doesn’t break the bank
That’s a lot to ask! Unfortunately, the medical organization’s current solution was not able to provide what they needed, so they had to look beyond their tools already in place.
The medical organization couldn’t find an ideal vaccine scheduling software package off the shelf, however, and they didn’t have the luxury of spending time and money to have a solution created for them.
THE SOLUTION - Vaccine Scheduling Sofware For Covid 19
That’s when their Director of Communication Technologies thought of their current contact center solutions provider – Primas Group – who also had a scheduling tool. Primas immediately developed a prototype that met all their requirements, and ScheduleNOW COVID-19 Vaccine Scheduling software was born.
Primas Group’s extensive background in contact center applications coupled with their ability to quickly enhance their existing scheduling tool meant that the medical organization was up and running with a fully tested and functional Vaccine Scheduling software solution in just 10 days!
After the initial implementation, Primas was on-hand every step of the way to make edits or add new capabilities as unanticipated challenges arose. Within 30 days, more than 40,000 vaccinations had been successfully scheduled, administered and recorded with the ScheduleNOW Vaccine Scheduling Software – and the medical facility’s senior management was thrilled with what they had been able to accomplish over such a short period of time.
All the vaccine scheduling features created for this organization were automatically incorporated into the standard solution that was then made available to facilities administering the COVID-19 vaccine across North America.
