RICHARDSON, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Orb Health, the leader in Enterprise Virtual Care for Chronic Care and beyond, announced today its new program to coordinate patient eligibility, registration, prioritization, appointment, and follow-ups for health systems and centers delivering the COVID-19 vaccine. This program enables providers to quickly scale and accelerate vaccine delivery to meet the overwhelming demand without adding additional infrastructure, resources, or employees.
According to a recent Tampa Bay Times article, the demand for the vaccine has been overwhelming, with health systems and centers downing in patient calls. “What we’ve seen is unprecedented demand and interest for this vaccine, and that’s good to know that our citizens are ready for the vaccine,” said Tim Dudley, Hillsborough County’s director of emergency management. ”We’ve seen about 2,000 calls a minute trying to get through on those lines.”
Orb Health's patient-centric Enterprise Virtual Care™ solution and services deliver best-in-class patient response and care coordination as a seamless virtual extension of the practice and creates economies of scale in care capacity without adding staff, apps, infrastructure, or budget. Our Virtual Care Cloud quickly, seamlessly, and securely connects to EMR systems such as Epic, Cerner, Intergy, Greenway, AllScripts, and more, enabling Orb Health’s experienced care coordinators to handle the outbound and inbound patient eligibility, scheduling, and registration for the critical COVID-19 vaccine.
"Orb Health has enabled health systems and centers to be successful in Chronic Care and beyond by proactively servicing patients as an extension of their health system and center without needing additional resources or personnel,” said Bryan Krastins, CEO at Orb Health. “We simply added our collaborative Rapid Vaccine Coordination workflows to our service that enables health systems and centers to quickly implement and scale to meet the extraordinary call volume. By removing the limitations of their contact center, we can help any health system, center, or clinic accelerate the roll out of the vaccine to at-risk patient populations.”
