DALLAS, TX, USA, December 9, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ -- QliqSOFT, which specializes in secure, HIPAA-compliant clinical collaboration and patient communication solutions and CPSI (NASDAQ: CPSI), a community healthcare solutions company today announced the launch of a new COVID-19 Vaccination Assistant chatbot that will be made available to all CPSI customers in early 2021 to provide safe, efficient, complete vaccination administration workflows.
QliqSOFT and CPSI are collaborating to release the COVID-19 Vaccination Assistant, a chatbot designed to address anticipated vaccine rollout concerns facing healthcare providers during the pandemic. The chatbot’s features allow it to address vaccine hesitancy through the use of an easily accessible and patient-focused Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) module, provide an in-chat option for patients to self-schedule their vaccination and receive reminders in advance to meet vaccine administration compliance and efficacy, provide transportation assistance when available through patients’ mobile devices, and capture necessary consents and digital proof of vaccination should such proof be required for an event, facility, or employment access. The COVID-19 Vaccine Assistant will support both single- and multi-dose vaccinations.
“The COVID-19 vaccines will only be effective if people take them,” says Krishna Kurapati, founder and chief executive officer of QliqSOFT. “This new chatbot allows healthcare organizations to automate education and follow-up to alleviate vaccine hesitancy, while also providing multiple touchpoints to remove hurdles and ensure follow-through.”
“The highest level of success of the COVID-19 vaccination program not only depends on the effectiveness of the vaccine itself, but also requires accurate and timely education, administration, and documentation,” added William J. Hayes, M.D., M.B.A., chief medical officer of CPSI.
The COVID-19 Vaccination Assistant is part of an ever-growing suite of patient-focused chatbots that dovetail into CPSI’s industry-leading patient engagement capabilities. CPSI began providing a highly successful COVID-19 Toolkit to its customers in March 2020, powered by QliqSOFT, to assist in providing business continuity and safe patient care in response to the pandemic.
QliqSOFT addresses the communication needs of healthcare organizations via its secure, scalable, modular Virtual Care Platform.

Symptom checkers can increase patient access by providing guidance and visit qualification checks 24 hours a day. They break down barriers by providing patients with the information they need most during those times when it can be difficult to reach a provider. The tools are also helping prevent misdiagnoses in these situations.
It is critical that underserved populations receive the care they deserve, as the global community continues to wrestle with the pandemic. Here at QliqSOFT, we are aware of the communication gap that too often exists in hospitals and clinics, ultimately keeping individuals from preventative and life-saving care.
