Rave Mobile Safety (Rave), the critical communication and collaboration platform that customers count on when it matters the most, has announced its Vaccine Distribution Solution to aid state and local agencies charged with managing vaccine distribution in their regions, in order to identify and communicate with vulnerable populations, deliver tailored guidance and logistical information, and leverage ongoing check-ins to ensure the success of vaccine rollout.
Importance of coordination and communication
The vaccine rollout is a massive undertaking that involves building trust within the community through ongoing engagement
In the initial phase of vaccine distribution, doses will be distributed according to need, prioritizing essential workers and the most vulnerable populations. Coordination and communication between state and local health agencies and the residents in their jurisdictions are crucial to these efforts, as states will have to identify, locate and provide guidance to critical populations, in order to successfully administer the vaccine.
The vaccine rollout is a massive undertaking that involves not only identifying which individuals fall into critical groups but also building trust within the community through ongoing engagement and monitoring.
Vaccine Distribution Solution
Rave’s Vaccine Distribution Solution enables those health professionals overseeing vaccine distribution to overcome these challenges by:
- Surfacing vulnerable and at-risk populations based on demographics, including age, all high-risk medical conditions as outlined by the CDC (the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), functional and access needs, disabilities, employment status, geographic location, and more, throughout all the phases of vaccine distribution, with the ability for that data to be leveraged by several key stakeholders, including public health and emergency management officials.
- Delivering mass notifications and targeted communications to reach the right people with the right message, share tailored guidance and logistical information to inform the community, and build confidence and trust through ongoing community engagement, outreach, and education.
- Continuously monitoring and querying the community to track symptoms, receive updates on any side effects, follow up to schedule second doses, and poll residents for community feedback.
Leveraging the Rave platform
The State of Louisiana and Suffolk County, in New York, are among the thousands of Rave customers leveraging the Rave platform to communicate COVID-19 updates and advisories to residents.
“State and local agencies must prepare now for the communication and logistical challenges vaccine distribution presents,” said Todd Piett, Rave Mobile Safety’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO), adding “With Rave, these health and safety agencies have a proven solution to help them through this Herculean effort, effectively source critical data, engage with their communities and ultimately enable a successful rollout.”
