TrackVax - Keeping Track of the COVID-19 Vaccine in Ireland
During the 37th GS1 Healthcare Conference in Paris (2022), Cliona Kiersey, Chief Pharmacist, HSE National Immunisation Office presented on stage the key successes for COVID-19 vaccine traceability in Ireland, including the early detection of quality issues and medication safety through reporting discard codes for vaccine usage. The implementation of TrackVax increased the certainty of valid doses, and collaboration and co-design with multiple stakeholders allowed system users to take ownership and continuously propose improvements. The system also provided full accountability in an environment of limited supply and public demand, and enabled real-time and accurate national reports with a rich dataset. Additionally, the system offered end-of-day reconciliation compared to paper-based reporting and provided timely, accurate, informative (usage trends) standardized reports, thereby increasing visibility.
