While the Covid-19 vaccination campaign has begun, many questions remain open. Injection planning, coordination with other stakeholders, tracking and tracing of patients and reporting to health authorities: the vaccination campaign presents many challenges for home care organizations. These new responsibilities require impeccable organization and presuppose that home care organizations have the right tools at their disposal.
The implementation of the vaccination campaign generates significant coordination efforts between the various stakeholders. Indeed, patients can be brought to receive injections by different actors.
In this context, it is crucial to optimize the coordination between the different actors. The exchange of information with other stakeholders and health authorities must be simple while remaining strictly secure.
The vaccination protocol must be scrupulously respected in terms of who is involved, dates, reactions to the vaccine and side effects. There is no room for error. As such, rigorous planning is essential.
Vaccines administered must be meticulously recorded and logged. Without this, it is impossible to provide accurate reports to health authorities.
Time is of the essence. With the immunization campaign already underway, home-based care organizations need to set up an efficient organization as soon as possible.
How to manage the administration of vaccines and achieve the applicable standards and have a flawless work process? Given the type of data processed and the accuracy requirements, home-based care organizations need specialized tools.
Aware of the urgency of the situation and having already produced a module for Covid-19 symptom management in March 2020, MLS is developing a module for Covid-19 vaccination management.
The module has four main components: setting up a vaccine repository, tracking and tracing immunization, coordinating with other stakeholders in the immunization campaign, and sharing reports for health authorities.
This module is integrated into the MedLink healthcare platform and therefore complies with federal data protection regulations.
The platform is adaptable to new constraints and allows the implementation of new functionalities according to the evolution of the epidemiological situation as well as the vaccines available on the market and the related protocols.
The MLS Vaccination Management module enables home-based care organizations to facilitate internal organization while improving coordination with other stakeholders and the accuracy of data provided to health authorities.
The module enables the implementation of the vaccination protocol in compliance with federal and cantonal regulations. Vaccination-related services are clearly documented, traced and linked to the patient’s file.
Information about the patient, the patient’s consent and the vaccination protocol is recorded and shared reliably and in a secure environment.
The module facilitates coordination with other stakeholders. Indeed, the platform offers the possibility to interact with other IT systems and export information to other actors.
Finally, by consolidating all the information about the vaccines administered and the patients, the module provides the possibility to send rigorous reports to the health authorities. This facilitates communication with the authorities.
In terms of vaccination, accuracy requirements are high and detailed data and a reliable tool are necessary.
Health care staff can work with peace of mind. They are not overwhelmed by additional administrative tasks due to the use of a variety of external platforms and applications.
Available in all three languages, the module is useful both for homecare organizations connected to the MLS platform and for homecare organizations with other software.
For a rigorous, secure and simplified management of the Covid-19 vaccination campaign, adopt our module.
