Microsoft Consulting Services has developed a COVID-19 vaccine management platform and is launching it today, December 11th. The new solution is for both government and healthcare clients.
In a blog post about the new platform, Microsoft highlights the role that technology can play in ensuring a safe and equitable distribution of the corona COVID-19 vaccine. Vaccines from various manufacturers are already available in Europe and soon in the US.
Microsoft and partners are actively working with their customers on vaccine management solutions that can be handled from provider registration to patients. They can organize gradual vaccination scheduling, with reports, details and forecasts.
According to the company, Microsoft Consulting Services (MCS) has already carried out more than 230 emergency missions for COVID-19 worldwide since the pandemic began in March.
MCS has developed the Vaccination Registration and Administration solution (VRAS from the Vaccination Registration and Administration Solution). This system, as its name implies, handles the evaluation, registration and scheduling of vaccine distribution. It can monitor and report the progress of immunization through secure data exchange using standards such as Health Level Seven, Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) and other APIs. Health care providers and pharmacies can monitor and report the effectiveness of specific vaccine batches with the same tool.
Several Microsoft partners use Microsoft cloud services to provide additional support for vaccine management with interoperability and integration with existing registration systems (predictive analytics and secure communications).
