City Health Care Partnership has collaborated with Inhealthcare to launch a digital immunisations programme across schools in Hull. The service removes administration associated with gathering consent and provides health care professionals with a list of children to be vaccinated, reducing waste.

The problem

  • Manual process of sending and collecting letters from parents and guardians
  • Completion using paper forms is low
  • Paper forms require manual re-entry into clinical record
  • On the day of vaccination information is captured on paper
  • There is no overall visibility of uptake across schools or the region

Solution

  • The service allows parents and guardians to complete an online questionnaire to capture consent and other relevant information
  • Raises notifications for healthcare professionals to review negative responses
  • Provides a list of eligible children for vaccines within a smartphone app
  • Integrates the results back into the patient community record
  • Dashboard provides real time status of population uptake
  • Alerts and lists of non-responders for targeted follow up
  • A fully digital solution to be used across all vaccinations

Results

  • 50% reduction in time spent at schools for vaccination sessions
  • 4% increase in uptake in first wave at Hull schools
