COVID-19 vaccine distribution planning

For state and local governments, healthcare providers, and other organizations



Vaccine administration consumes many different resources ranging from PPE items like ear loop masks, gloves and gowns to vaccines themselves, needles, bandages and alcohol swabs.

Supply Chain


Everything from physical pallet storage space to shipping methods, all of which need to be temperature controlled.



Staffing up many different types of roles, including ones with strict licensing requirements across geographies, can vary across sites.

Resource Modeling


One of the critical goals we have seen for any entity in charge of administering vaccines will be to plan, track and report on the consumption and depletion of resources.



Make data-driven recommendations to decision makers about all of the above resources and decisions.
