Omnicell’s patient engagement solution division EnlivenHealth is building out its CareScheduler offering to help pharmacies manage demand and reporting requirements for immunizations.
As flu season ramps up and patients begin seeking flu shots and COVID-19 booster shots, CareScheduler now features the ability to use artificial intelligence to recommend and recruit pharmacy patients who are most in need of receiving the flu vaccine. CareScheduler also allows patients to book joint appointments for flu shots and COVID-19 boosters, without requiring any action from pharmacy staff.
“We expanded CareScheduler’s best-in-class capabilities to empower pharmacies and their staffs to continue to keep their patients healthy and happy, while strengthening their long-term business results,” said Danny Sanchez, vice president and general manager of EnlivenHealth. “Pharmacists are among the most trusted healthcare professionals and their role is more important than ever as the flu season rapidly approaches, and the COVID-19 booster shot now has been approved.”
EnlivenHealth said CareScheduler is designed to enable pharmacies to automate the processes for vaccine scheduling, electronic consent collection, registry reporting and patient outreach. The company said the new features were meant to save pharmacists time and effort on these tasks to enable them to provide personalized patient care.
Besides the flu vaccine patient recruitment and joint scheduling capabilities, CareScheduler now also electronically records necessary documentation and custom consent language with a single electronic form for both flu shots and COVID-19 vaccines.
