Solution enables state public health department to streamline coronavirus vaccination distribution
ATLANTA, Jan. 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Juvare, the leader in critical incident preparedness and response technology, announced today that it has partnered with the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) for the use of Juvare's EMTrack solution to help providers schedule and track the administration of COVID-19 vaccines, beginning in Phase 1A of the state's COVID-19 Vaccination Campaign. EMTrack is already used by IDPH for patient triage and tracking across the state, and this partnership will enable convenient appointment scheduling, secure immunization data collection, and automated patient reminders.
Juvare's Vaccination Module, which is integrated and built in the EMTrack platform, is designed for use by healthcare institutions and public health agencies at the state, regional, and individual provider levels. The platform enables patients to easily pre-schedule COVID-19 vaccination appointments and helps providers operationalize their mass immunization campaigns. EMTrack is regularly used for tracking the flu and other vaccines, and this module builds on those capabilities to help organizations maintain efficiency and coordination as COVID-19 vaccines become available.
