Simplify Vaccine Handling Workflows

Multiple challenges await providers as COVID-19 vaccines rollout. Those challenges include managing multiple manufacturers that require varying storage temperatures, tracking expiration and puncture dates, and ensuring the two-dose series is administered at the correct time with the same vaccine. AccuShelf automates all of these challenges and greatly simplifies COVID-19 workflows so you can meet compliance and deliver immunizations safely and effectively:

  • Capture NDC, lot, expiry, mfg. and dose with wireless scanning
  • Update multi-dose vial beyond use dates puncture times, and dose counts
  • Automatic updates to expiry based on changes of storage locations (ultra-low freezers (-70C), freezers (-30 to -15C), or fridges (2 to 8C))
  • Track two-dose series with reminders and checks for the same manufacturer on the second shot
  • Access cloud-based reports for inventory usage and patient immunization data

Maintain Cold Chain Storage Protocols

COVID-19 vaccine temperature monitors

Current vaccines require ultra-low temperature freezers (or dry ice containers) for transportation & storage. AccuShelf provides integration with digital data loggers & real-time monitoring to ensure cold storage preservation including:   

  • Ultra-low & standard temperature monitoring to track movements between storage units, temperature changes, and prevent excursions
  • Real-time temperature alerts via email and/or text message
  • Digital data loggers can be attached to any cold storage device, from dry ice containers to ultra-low freezer, standard freezer, or refrigerators. 

Plan & Manage Vaccine Inventory

Track every COVID-19 vaccine dose, from receipt to patient administration with real-time inventory reporting for dose usage and days remaining calculations using integrated tools including:

  • Low inventory alerts to avoid stock-outs & quickly reallocate stock to high demand areas with site to site transfer
  • Item barcode scanning to confirm the correct dose, series (same manufacturer and timing), and expiration 
  • Update expiry from the central Department of Health and Human Services list
