CRM giant Salesforce has announced it has adapted some of its business software to assist healthcare organizations and government entities give out the vaccines.
The offering, called Work.com for vaccines, will help cities, states, and healthcare groups effortlessly track vaccine inventory levels, create online appointment portals, and track how patients fare after being vaccinated. This development comes as several companies and countries across the globe are working hard to develop a vaccine for the COVID-19 pandemic to provide some degree of immunity to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Emma Walmsley, the chief executive of GlaxoSmithKline, the world’s largest maker of vaccines, remarked she was optimistic the healthcare industry will be able to make vaccines widely available next year.
“Technology is going to play a critical role in helping governments and healthcare organizations distribute what promises to be billions of doses of vaccines around the world,” said Bret Taylor, President and COO of Salesforce. “We’re proud to play our part with Work.com for Vaccines, giving organizations the technology they need to safely and efficiently deploy their vaccine programs at scale, powered by Salesforce’s trusted Customer 360 platform,” Taylor added.
The efforts of Salesforce.com build on tools rolled out in May this year were aimed at modifying the business software of Salesforce to assist governments make quick, accurate, and reliable re-opening decisions based on public health data and carry out contact tracing and other tasks related to the pandemic. Salesforce said the pricing of the new tools will be “based upon the unique requirements of each public agency or private healthcare organization.” Customers may possibly include government agencies that go beyond public health coordination.
