Since connecting displaced hurricane Katrina victims to their immunization records in 2005, STChealth has been building a giant: a single Immunization Intelligence Network to exchange vital immunization records, in real time, making them available to health officials, providers, and consumers when they need them most–like during a global pandemic.
Through long-term partners, new data sources, and record amounts of pharmacy administered immunizations, STChealth transmitted over 1 billion immunization messages through their network in the last 12 months alone. Why? It is easy to answer: To help as many people as possible get vaccinated.
Mike Popovich is the CEO of STChealth. He noted, ” We never lose sight that immunizations sent through our national network are life-saving medicine given to real people. This means that children, parents, grandmothers, aunts and uncles are receiving their shots and creating a better future for their families and communities. That’s the impact we use to motivate ourselves to innovate further and help our clients improve access to life-saving medicine.”
Just a few …
STChealth connected more than 1 million consumers directly to their immunization records via MyIR Mobile in 2021. These records were used to send their children back to school, get them back to work, and allow them to travel again.
STC also connected thousands of new pharmacies to their state immunization registries in 2020 and 2021 so they could join the fight against COVID-19 and become key vaccinators in their local communities.
Quan Le, IIS Manager for the Louisiana Department of Public Health, provided his perspective by saying, “The most important role the LINKS system has played during the COVID-19 response is providing the needed data for urgent decisions made by State leadership.”Armed with data and expertise from STChealth, Quan and the Louisiana Immunization Program have been able to provide State leadership with crucial insights that allowed for fast and sound decision making.
2022 looks set to be another crucial year in our collective fight to eradicate COVID. The STChealth team is looking forward to continuing to work with partners in the Immunization Ecosystem in order to get shots in arm and protect our communities.
*)STChealth’s mission aims to eliminate vaccine-preventable diseases and empower people through innovative technology and services. Our mission is accomplished through passion, innovation, teamwork, inclusion, superior client service, and relentless pursuit of the next big idea that will improve immunization intelligence. Starting with developing the first Immunization Information System (IIS) and over 33 years of experience in the immunization ecosystem, STChealth is positioned today to support more than 1/3 of COVID-19 vaccinations reported in the U.S. through our network of over 54,000 Providers and Pharmacy Partners.
