INDIANAPOLIS, IN – Jan. 11, 2020 – Zotec Partners (Zotec), one of the country’s largest, privately-held, technology-enabled revenue cycle management (RCM) companies for healthcare providers and their patients, continues to enhance its Vaccine Information Management System (VIMS) as the state rollout plan moves forward. In partnership with the Indiana Department of Health (IDOH), this technology currently facilitates the distribution of COVID-19 vaccine to Indiana healthcare workers, first responders and Hoosiers 80 years old or older.
“Zotec is working very closely with the Governor and his team to provide critical technical solutions to manage the unprecedented and highly complex vaccination process for Hoosiers,” said T. Scott Law, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Zotec Partners. “We quickly adapted our progressive healthcare platform to meet the needs of the state, enabling the tracking and deployment of COVID vaccination throughout the state efficiently and timely.”
More than 460,000 COVID-19 vaccination appointments have already been scheduled leveraging Zotec’s first-of-its-kind technology, including nearly 86,000 Hoosiers 80 and older. With an additional 300,000 anticipated to schedule by the end of the month, Zotec continues to bolster its technology to optimize the user experience, including its most recent update that initiates a holding queue designed for high volume times.
Zotec’s vaccination management system communicates with eligible Hoosiers via text message for appointment reminders and follow up with a completion notification once the second dose has been administered. The system also tracks inventory levels and reallocation of the vaccine across the state, ensuring availability in the areas of most need. Accurate scheduling of the vaccine is essential as each of the two approved vaccines needs to be kept at very specific ultra-cold temperatures for injection and are rendered useless once it thaws past a certain point.
“We’re fully-committed to supporting our state and helping Hoosiers in this time of unsurpassed need,” said Law. “As the situation changes day-by-day, Zotec will continue to invest our people, processes and technology into delivering the necessary tools to streamline and simplify the vaccination process for individuals and healthcare systems across the state.”
Zotec initially partnered with IDOH in April to facilitate COVID-19 testing throughout Indiana. By working closely with the State and its lab facility over the course of a few weeks, Zotec delivered an efficient, automated process to patients who may have been impacted by COVID-19. They also provided bar-coded labels with routing information for labs and facilitated communication between the Department of Health and Indiana patients.
