Blockitnow Inc., a leading provider of digital care coordination solutions, has been on the front lines of the pandemic, providing a no-cost version of their deeply integrated scheduling platform for COVID-19 relief efforts. Today, Blockit announced that its vaccine scheduling solution is now being used by over 300 organizations with peak usage of 212 vaccination appointments scheduled each minute.
The solution has facilitated the pre and post-vaccine processes for organizations across the country including large and small healthcare systems, state and county health departments, and pharmacies. As more vaccines get approved, production increases, and distribution happens more easily, states will continue to update vaccination policies and procedures. Healthcare organizations are thinking ahead by incorporating Blockit to minimize communication workloads, reduce administrative overhead, and keep their providers focused on fighting the pandemic.
“Blockit’s solution quickly empowered our city’s providers to easily gather the necessary patient information, qualify the patient, digitally schedule the appointment and easily manage patient intake and 2nd dose reminders. Therefore creating a significantly improved approach to facilitating this important vaccine rollout,” said Mike Searight, CIO of Waco-Mclennan County Health Department.
Blockit’s HIPAA compliant, high-capacity platform and flexible application programming interface (API) enables patients to easily find, book and register for appointments. The simple technology makes it easy to scale and adapt to any care setting across existing EHR infrastructures.
“Since vaccine approval, we’ve had an incredible response from the nation’s leading health systems,” said Jake McCarley, co-founder and CEO of Blockit. “Patients are eager to be vaccinated and health systems are experiencing incredibly high volumes of patient inquiries. We are proud to offer a solution that helps all of us fight against the pandemic while alleviating the pressure our providers and their patients regularly face.”
