How to Manage COVID Vaccination Drive With HIPAA Compliant Forms
It’s been more than a year now that the CoronaVirus pandemic hit us and brought life to an almost standstill. After a year of research and development, we have the vaccines ready that might bring lives to normal very soon.
Now, the vaccination drive process has begun but there is a dearth of vaccines as the global demand is really high. Sufficient vaccine allotment to the right public officials from time to time is a major task that lies ahead. Every single dose of the vaccine is precious, and so is the information that is collected in the process.
So, how do you manage such crucial data with ease? This is why we, at Outgrow, decided to do this informative blog.
We understand the health industry requirements!
Hence, with Outgrow’s systematic and efficient HIPAA compliant forms and other interactive content pieces, we aim to make the process a lot smoother and secure. Whether it is collecting preferences, conducting registrations, or getting the appointments done for your organization, Outgrow has ready-to-use templates for all your needs. The best part - Outgrow is pretty simple to use with no coding required and it won't cost you a fortune too!
Why Use Outgrow HIPAA Compliant Form Builders?
HIPAA compliance aims to ensure privacy and confidentiality and also reduces fraudulent activity. So, it basically boils down to data security which is of utmost importance in the health industry. Outgrow is one robust platform to create interactive experiences like forms, assessments, calculators, etc. You can store the information collected with HIPAA compliance and even segment the data as per your requirement.
Let’s understand the ways in which Outgrow can help with the whole vaccination process.
There’s so no limit to the information you can collect with Outgrow experiences, be it the user details, their medical history appointments, etc. You can easily store all the data here or pass it to any other CRM tool that you use. Outgrow has over 1000 tool integration options to choose from. In fact, if you do not find your tool or want to connect it with something in-house, you can easily do that with either Zapier or Webhooks. Isn’t that a big advantage?
Segmenting data is one big task because every other piece of information you collect may not be equally important. There may be some critical information that you do not want to share publicly or information that is not that relevant. You can easily create a filter as per your requirements with Outgrow’s dashboard and voila, you are good to go.
When it comes to searching data, your database should be capable of fetching you the required details within seconds. And, that’s where the View button can help. Moreover, Outgrow gives you the option to export data to google sheets with a click. How hassle-free is that!
