Improving Vaccine Allocation Through Scheduling, Data Solutions

Erin Jospe, MD, and Chris Gervais of Kyruus discuss how the company partners with health care organizations to help improve their COVID-19 vaccine rollout.

The United States is now 5 months into its national vaccine rollout. Although hundreds of millions of doses have been successfully administered, the process has hit several snags along the way, including, but not limited to, disparities in administration and a failure to collect racial data on nearly half of those vaccinated at the national level.

But to achieve this feat, health systems have had to adjust to shifting vaccine eligibility requirements, ensure outreach efforts are successful, and combat misinformation within their communities, all the while scheduling appointments and making sure shots get in arms.

In an effort to meet some of the logistical challenges of the rollout, Kyruus works alongside health care organizations and provides search, scheduling, and data management solutions to help connect patients with the right care.

On this episode of Managed Care Cast, we speak with Chris Gervais, the chief technology and security officer at Kyruus, and Erin Jospe, MD, chief medical officer at Kyruus.
