With a possible coronavirus vaccine on the horizon, Infosys-backed cloud consulting company Simplus has launched a vaccine management cloud solution on the Salesforce platform. 

Dubbed Infosys Vaccine Management Solution, the product will support the distribution of the Covid-19 vaccine at the state level, a statement said. It will also aid with campaign management, citizen registration, prioritisation, provider enrollment, supply chain visibility, forecasting, vaccine administration and wellness surveys, and monitor adverse events. 

Simplus, the statement said, looks to integrate the vaccine management solution with testing and contact tracing to complete the containment strategy for the public sector. 

“Infosys’ vaccine management solution combines the power of Health Cloud, Marketing Cloud, MuleSoft and Tableau,” Eric Paternoster, CEO of Infosys Public Services, said. “We have also architected the solution in modular fashion to complement existing systems that may already be in place.”

The solution, which is integrated with the Salesforce Health Cloud, offers a customer or resident-facing interface as well as a provider-facing interface. State residents can register for and schedule vaccine appointments on the residents interface. The provider interface helps vaccine providers manage inventory, log in administration details and document adverse effects. 

The solution will also aid with consideration of variables on dosage frequency and vulnerable populations in geographies as well as testing strategy and asymptomatic transmission. 

Infosys acquired US firm Simplus in February this year for a consideration of $250 million to strengthen its end-to-end Salesforce enterprise cloud solutions offerings. 

In October, the information technology major launched an automated data science platform for public health agencies, called Infosys Health Insights Platform, with AWS, distributed NoSQL cloud database Couchbase and business intelligence platform Knowi.
