The new presidential administration is rolling out a number of initiatives to help combat COVID-19 such as expanding vaccine supply, launching a retail pharmacy program, and increasing reimbursements to states.
State and local government health and human services (HHS) agencies can use all the support they can get. Their technology infrastructure has never been more critical. These systems – most notably call centers, electronic lab reporting (ELR) systems and disease surveillance systems – are under extreme stress as public health organizations work to track, report, and share information on COVID-19 cases.
Now that the COVID vaccines are available, immunization information systems (IIS) must support a campaign to inoculate hundreds of millions of Americans in the shortest timeframe possible. These critical systems must be ready to respond to an influx of queries for proof of vaccination from schools, employers and others. At the same time, states and localities will need to aggregate vaccine availability, build business processes around scheduling and more to be successful.
Join Government Technology and Amazon Web Services (AWS) on March 10 at 11 a.m. Pacific/2 p.m. Eastern for a 30-minute conversation as our experts discuss how migrating these core systems to the cloud will help agencies prepare for the next phase of the COVID-19 pandemic and build a robust foundation for the future.
