Phoenix, Arizona (PRUnderground) April 23rd, 2020
STChealth’s consumer access solution, MyIR Mobile, is being offered to all state immunization programs at no cost. MyIR Mobile allows consumers to access a digital immunization record free of charge, providing quick access to important health records at a time when consumers need it most. Immunization programs in Arizona, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, West Virginia, and Washington already use MyIR, with nearly 20,000 consumers checking their records in the last 60 days.
Providing access to critical health information is a top priority for STChealth, and immunization histories are incredibly important in the context of COVID-19. With the virus putting a strain on healthcare systems around the country, it’s more important than ever for Public Health and consumers to work together to protect against vaccine-preventable diseases such as influenza and pneumonia, which could add further strain to healthcare systems if contracted.
The 2020-2021 flu season will be complicated by the current pandemic, and COVID-19 impacts many of the same individuals as seasonal flu. Despite a COVID-19 vaccine likely being at least a year away, increased COVID-19 testing presents an opportunity for Public Health to improve immunization coverage rates for diseases such as seasonal flu and pneumonia. Through MyIR Mobile, consumers are able to check if their immunizations are up-to-date, add dependents, and schedule appointments for COVID-19 testing once available. FDA approved COVID-19 antibody test results will be captured in MyIR Mobile, and when a COVID-19 vaccine becomes available, MyIR Mobile will allow consumers to show proof of immunity or vaccination to assist with employer testing programs.
MyIR Mobile helps State immunization programs establish a touchpoint with consumers for ongoing education of COVID-19 as situations evolve. Additionally, State immunization programs will be provided with a consumer intelligence dashboard showing real-time visualizations of consumers connected, record requests, and match rates.
