University of Louisville Health (UofL Health) manually extracted COVID-19 vaccine administration data from its EMR and combined it with inventory data to conduct time-consuming reconciliations weekly. It lacked the necessary insights to efficiently model and forecast inventory requirements to administer as many first doses as possible without exhausting its supply of second doses. UofL Health leveraged a vaccine inventory management tool, providing the organization with the necessary data analytics to quickly and accurately model vaccination schedules, forecast vaccine supply needs, identify and resolve quality/safety concerns, and generate required regulatory reports.
- Thirty percent increase in scheduled vaccinations per week, growing and optimizing the use of available COVID-19 vaccine inventory while also ensuring adequate inventory for second doses.
- Hundreds of hours of manual data reconciliation and evaluation avoided annually. Analyses that used to require hours are now completed in minutes.
- More timely access to data, facilitating timely operational, quality, and safety decisions by organizational leaders.
