Accenture Launches Vaccine Management Solution to Support COVID-19 Immunization Programs

Solution includes modular components to fit varying public health authorities’ needs and priorities

NEW YORK; Oct. 7, 2020 – Accenture (NYSE: ACN) today announced a comprehensive vaccine management solution to help government and healthcare organizations rapidly and effectively plan and develop COVID-19 vaccination programs and related distribution and communication initiatives.

The solution expands on Accenture’s contact tracing capability to help public health jurisdictions meet newly released guidelines from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in preparation for COVID-19 vaccine distribution. It brings together Accenture’s industry, analytics and consulting experience and includes components built on the Salesforce platform. Local, state and national governments as well as healthcare organizations worldwide are expected to similarly undertake planning, development, coordination, distribution and management of COVID-19 immunization programs.

“Our solution is designed to meet widely varying needs for developing, launching and running mass immunization programs by public authorities and healthcare bodies around the world,” said Ryan Oakes, senior managing director of Accenture’s global public sector practice. “Efforts need to be launched quickly and encompass a broad range of activities, as emphasized by the CDC guidelines, and we are prepared to systematically help organizations clarify and rapidly advance their priorities for managing COVID-19 vaccinations.”

The solution includes the following components that can be used together or individually, based on specific client needs:

Accenture and Salesforce have been quick to develop joint solutions throughout the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic to help governments and organizations with new issues and needs that have arisen as the situation has rapidly changed. In May, Accenture collaborated with Salesforce to build public health and care management solutions as an inaugural partner for Work.com—a set of solutions from Salesforce to help organizations around the world work safely, including vaccine management capabilities through Work.com for Vaccines.

“Accenture is a proven and strategic leader in solving complex challenges for public and private sectors using the Salesforce platform,” said Dr. Ashwini Zenooz, chief medical officer and GM of Healthcare and Life Sciences at Salesforce. “Just as Accenture is ready to help government and healthcare organizations implement Salesforce’s Work.com for Vaccines, we are ready to help them successfully tackle vaccine management with their solutions built on Salesforce.”

Yusuf Tayob, senior managing director of the Accenture Salesforce Business Group, added, “We are proud to extend our investments on Salesforce’s Work.com and Customer 360 platforms to offer solutions for vaccine management to our clients in healthcare and public service, as well as the life sciences and logistics sectors. Accenture has a longstanding alliance with Salesforce and a strong track record for solving the most pressing business and government challenges. We’re excited to be working together on this important societal imperative.”
