Covid-19 vaccines are here…well sort of. Let’s face it, it’s been the top news story (other than politics) for a couple months now.

For us as consultants, we immediately have recognized the need for support at the client level regarding all these challenges and system changes.

I thought this week I would take a moment to talk about what I’m seeing out there and will be eager to hear what you all have been doing as it relates to providing clients with support.
The top focus right now is no doubt creating a program that streamlines vaccine administration and management. A combination of EHR enhancement tools to workflow process design for program administrators and clinicians. And obviously, having the resources to execute the program.
