The Ministry of Digital Transformation, in synergy with the Ministry of Health and the National Health Service of Ukraine, are developing an effective digital tool to ensure the organization of vaccination against COVID-19 in Ukraine. This was announced by Deputy Prime Minister - Minister of Digital Transformation Mykhailo Fedorov during a panel discussion at the All-Ukrainian Forum "Ukraine 30: Coronavirus: Challenges and Responses".
“The Ministry of Digital Transformation is negotiating with the Ministry of Health so that through the Action we can start accepting electronic applications from Ukrainians who are planning to get vaccinated. In this way we will be able to forecast the demand and then effectively organize the vaccination system and logistics. It is crucial to gather quality information in order to ensure efficiency and decentralization principles during the organization process,” Mykhailo Fedorov said.
From the point of view of management, it is vital to organize the immunization process. We are planning to elaborate a record in an electronic queue for vaccination against COVID-19 through the Diia (Action) application in a few clicks. On the basis of the medical electronic system eHealth, a database of citizens who will send an application for vaccination will be formed.
Based on the entries in the Diia, in accordance with the vaccine supply plan, the Ministry of Health and the National Health Service of Ukraine will be able to quickly distribute vaccines in accordance with the queue. There will also operate a call center that will answer questions from citizens.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, the Ministry of Digital Transformation has been included in the headquarters of the fight against COVID-19. After all, digital technologies help to create convenient services, receive high-quality data and organize processes in real time.
Proper vaccination of a large country is a significant challenge. The Ministry, which is responsible for digital technologies, understands the importance of creating an opportunity for every Ukrainian to conveniently, without queues and unnecessary certificates, register for vaccination against coronavirus disease.
