Salesforce is launching Vaccine Cloud to help governments and healthcare providers globally maintain and manage digital records of COVID-19 vaccinations.
Vaccine Cloud will help users register and schedule for their vaccine shots. It will also help government agencies and public health providers to ensure that enough vaccine doses have been secured, and the ease of monitoring patient outcomes.
These agencies and organisations can design, build and manage vaccine programs at scale quickly on the Salesforce Customer 360 platform, including mobility solutions, bots, analytics and integration capabilities.
"The biggest challenge the world faces right now is orchestrating the distribution of billions of vaccine doses. Technology can play a critical role," Salesforce President and Chief Operating Officer Bret Taylor said.
Many government agencies and healthcare organisations do not have the technology infrastructure in place to handle the complexity, speed and scale necessary for mass vaccine administration, Salesforce said.
Vaccine Cloud will also allow people to share their vaccination or health status, which can help bring employees back to offices.
