AUSTIN, Texas (Feb. 1, 2021) – To address the immediate health needs of Austin residents during the COVID-19 pandemic, Austin Public Health (APH) recently contracted with professional services firm Sense Corp to launch a comprehensive, cloud-based solution designed to expedite distribution and administration of approved COVID-19 vaccines for the citizens of Austin and Travis County residents. By leveraging the Sense Corp Vaccine Management Solution, APH can now manage vaccine supplies, logistics, scheduling, and tracking of doses to provide the fastest and most effective relief possible for residents affected by the COVID-19 virus.
The Sense Corp Vaccine Management Solution designed for APH is a Salesforce-based tool that provides modernized capabilities to manage vaccine inventory, including controlling the right amount of vaccine to keep on hand at various facilities, identifying reorder thresholds, and ensuring compliance with applicable state and federal guidelines. With this solution, local area residents will be able to schedule an appointment to receive a vaccination at one of APH’s 10 test sites using the same process currently included in APH’s COVID-19 testing application.
“Austin Public Health is committed to providing fast and easy COVID-19 vaccinations for Austin and Travis County residents,” said Austin Public Health’s Phillip Bays, “and in working with a local partner in Sense Corp, we believe these residents will now have the opportunity to register for and receive the COVID-19 vaccine in the fastest and easiest manner possible.”
The mobile-ready Sense Corp solution is designed to provide residents with information on when and where they can obtain the vaccination, as well as schedule and manage appointments based on vaccine availability at individual locations. When APH administers a vaccine, the solution links back to the vaccine record and tracks vital data, including records of vaccine production and storage, records of vaccine administration, and updated inventory information.
APH selected Sense Corp as its partner in this critical project based upon the firm’s proposed timeline for implementation, its track record for providing successful solutions to large government entities, and the qualifications of its project team, which included one of the world’s leading Salesforce solution architects.
“We at Sense Corp are grateful to APH for allowing us the opportunity to serve as their trusted partner in this effort,” said Jimmy Schatte, Sense Corp SVP, Public Sector. “Our teams have worked extremely hard to expedite this solution for APH, and we are proud that not only is it one of the first vaccine management solutions to go live in the country, but that it is also allowing us to make a direct impact in our home city.”
