This past year has been difficult for many, with healthcare organizations standing at the forefront of the pandemic, but there is finally light at the end of the tunnel. As the US embarks on the largest vaccination effort ever conducted, technology will play an essential role in successful and efficient COVID-19 vaccine distribution across the country.
In this blog, we compiled the most common examples of how Phynd helps our clients to support their COVID-19 response efforts, quickly enhancing current vaccine management systems or starting a new one.
1. Efficiently verify volunteer providers credentialed to practice
Phynd's National Provider Network (NPN) is a robust tool, immediately available upon purchase, to Phynd’s clients, providing access to a comprehensive database of over 5 million providers, continuously updated by feeds from all national and state registries.
Real-life use-case example:
UC San Diego Health System is using Phynd's NPN to quickly search for and vet nurses who show up to help administer vaccines, reducing redundancy related to administrative provider data workflows for the multiple functional teams involved.
How it works:
Phynd's National Provider Network is a comprehensive, single database of credentialed to practice providers, registered nurses and delegates in one place. This powerful lookup tool allows all teams within a healthcare organization to search over 5 million complete and accurate provider profiles, then verify and enroll these volunteer clinicians into their Phynd provider database for use by other systems.
2. Track workforce vaccinations and display immunization status
Keeping track of your providers' vaccination status – whether one-shot or both of the vaccine is received – is needed for various internal uses, including provider availability for patient scheduling, departmental provider coverage, and provider work schedules.
How it works:
Phynd's provider profile management allows staff to tag individual providers by vaccination status. This tagging feature can be set both in individual provider and location profiles to help site administrators. These tags can be used by Phynd's Provider Search API, Outreach Tool, and Search Report capabilities. This feature can be set up in minutes by admin teams, controlled with security and governance terms based on the user profile.
3. Streamline reporting and vaccination record management
Utilize the Provider Outreach Tool to streamline outreach campaigns for Providers and/or their delegates to self-report their vaccinations or add vaccination efforts to work lists.
Create custom dynamic reports to feed analytics and forecasting tools to track vaccination progress across health systems departments and locations.
4. Enable your websites to inform your patients and navigate to the care they need
Enable smart search by adding consumer-friendly terms such as “COVID-19” or “coronavirus vaccine” to clinical taxonomy library making them available to consumers via search in moments.
Additionally, Phynd Schedule Advisor takes complex scheduling data and presents a simple and intuitive patient experience, with options to search on Covid-19 vaccination specific visit types.
Provider Profile Tags and Phynd Search API offer a powerful way to publish large amounts of information to multiple web properties dynamically without compromising the website's performance. Link relevant provider profile information with content management systems and push real-time provider or location updates all from a single Phynd instance.
5. Roll out dedicated support solutions
Communicating both COVID testing and vaccination centers through consumer-facing search can help health systems deploy quickly updates and continually adapt as CDC guidelines evolve.
Real-life use - case example:
NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital urgently needed to direct patient flow to 12 mobile testing sites, spread across a major metropolitan region. Locations and hours of operation were changing daily. Utilizing the Provider Search API and Web App feature, Phynd was able to deploy fully functioning consumer sites in a matter of hours, featuring smart geo-attribution search, consumer-friendly taxonomy, chatbot integration, and more.
How it works:
Phynd's robust search API’s and modern microsite technologies powerful cloud platform offer scalability and agility, enabling health systems to roll solutions in record time all powered by a single instance of provider information.
