Reportedly, a health startup Healthvana to team up with Apple (AAPL) to enable COVID-19 vaccine tracking in Apple Wallet in partnership with Los Angeles County in order to digitize the information and assist users with their second dose notifications. The offering will first be introduced in Los Angeles County, in the United States.
The technology will be necessary for the coming days to track people’s vaccination status and get the information quickly. Its absence can add an undue burden to the health officials to obtain each patient’s medical data every time a vaccination is given and where follow-up for a second is required.
The initiative is geared primarily towards getting people their second dose, but Healthvana hopes to implement the system for future verification systems with easy Apple Wallet access, where and users could show the card to airlines or concerts, events in the future.
“We’re really concerned,”, “We really want people to come back for that second dose, we just don’t have the capacity to be doing hundreds of medical record requests to find people’s first doses and when they need to get their second.” stated director of vaccine-preventable disease control, Claire Jarashow.
Started in 2014, Healthvana delivered test results for HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases. While Healthvana is used in Los Angeles County, other startups are expected to come up to bring the technology and convenience to other locations as in near future vaccination records will be mandatory to get back to normal life.
