Vaccine Delivery

One of the main challenges of immunization worldwide is that timely coverage often drops off after the first few rounds. And if patients miss a booster—or are even just delayed—the immunizations are no longer effective.

To ensure the success of immunization campaigns and help countries improve coverage of under-immunised and zero-dose children, it is critical to verify delivery to target populations and accurately track patients’ immunization schedule.

CommCare is a highly adaptable open-source mobile health platform that can be customized to meet a variety of vaccine administration and management needs. It has been successfully used to register, identify, and follow both clients and vaccine stock in a variety of countries and for a range of diseases.

Dimagi is a proud member of GAVI Innovation for Uptake, Scale and Equity in immunization (INFUSE) community, allowing us to contribute to saving lives and protecting people’s health by increasing equitable and sustainable use of vaccines.

Benefits of Digital Solutions for
Vaccine Delivery

Clinic-based registry systems employ longitudinal data tracking for individuals receiving vaccines.

Turnkey integrations with data analysis and visualization software ensure key stakeholders can monitor and compare mass vaccination campaigns and course completions.

Scheduling and workflow management features help to expand vaccine coverage to every patient.

Bi-directional messaging features allow patients to receive notifications for their next appointment or report adverse events in the interim.

Remote registration and eligibility determinations support vaccine delivery to patients living at the last mile.

Biometrics verification ensures delivery of the vaccines to the appropriate recipients.

Behavior change messaging can help to reduce vaccine hesitancy and increase uptake for uninformed populations.

Data integrations allow collaboration with and export to electronic health systems.
