WEBINAR: Vaccination Scheduling, Administration, and Documentation in a Digital World

April 6, 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic is the first mass vaccination effort in decades and it revealed cracks in our healthcare infrastructure. In the beginning of the vaccine rollout in many states, scheduling websites were unable to handle the traffic and to limit the number of appointments scheduled to the number of vaccine doses available. Most providers had no coordinated waitlist method for ensuring that vaccines did not go to waste, even in the face of no-show appointments. Additionally, everyone is now having to deal with the issue that has plagued parents of school-age children for decades: trying not to misplace the vaccination record.

In this session, we explore how digital technologies (Vaccine Passport and Virtual Front Desk) can help enable a more efficient scheduling process, deliver a touchless patient intake process effortlessly and accurately document the vaccination event, and allow the patient to access his or her vaccination record from any digital device. 

This webinar will explore:

  • Issues related to digital patient scheduling
  • Digital solutions for enabling touchless patient intake
  • Strategies for capturing vaccination information automatically for digital proof
