The City of New Orleans races to the challenge
New Orleans is one of America’s most energetic cities, but the energy has turned from parade floats and beignets to fighting coronavirus. The city has even canceled their beloved Mardi Gras celebrations and is closing bars and other venues during peak celebration days.
As a part of this effort, the city is moving quickly to get as many citizens registered and vaccinated as possible.
“We are excited to say that 100% of the NOLA-311 public vaccination campaign is running on the Quickbase platform,” said Executive Director, Orleans Parish Communication District (New Orleans 911/311), Tyrell Morris. “With the applications we’ve built, the public is able to check their eligibility, register and schedule their appointments to get the first dose of the vaccine, then schedule their second dosage appointment. We’ve been able to get hundreds vaccinated in a matter of weeks following the app roll-out.”
New Orleans 911/311 are utilizing Quickbase to update their applications in real-time, including when new doses become available, managing both Pfizer and Moderna vaccines and the different dosage timelines, and updating the public on the city’s efforts. The user experience is simple and straightforward – New Orleans citizens can visit ready.nola.gov/getvaccine to check their status, and make an appointment if they’re eligible. Quickbase then automatically sends reminder notifications via text and phone call to limit the number of no-shows and increase the number of shots in arms each day.
The successes go beyond local governments. Healthcare systems are seeing the value of flexible and adaptable technology to roll out their vaccine distribution plans.
PeaceHealth, a not-for-profit health care system across Washington, Oregon and Alaska, is using Quickbase to schedule and monitor their vaccine distribution. CIO, Will Weider has shared in a Tweet: “The COVID-19 Vaccination scheduling app we built with Quickbase is amazing. Our low-code platform strategy solves lots of problems quickly and elegantly.”
