Toronto tech startup hopes to make staffing a breeze at Sudbury vaccine sites
The developers behind BookJane hope to help allot resources during vaccination rollouts
Vaccine clinics in northern Ontario may be getting a hand from a tech company in Toronto.
BookJane, a Toronto-based startup, is hoping its new app will help health care teams coordinate staffing once vaccine clinics get fully underway in northern Ontario.
Public Health Sudbury & Districts currently has five sites in operation across the region, but as more vaccines roll out it's expected the number of places offering the vaccine will increase.
The province is also saying it will announce which pharmacies in the region are able to administer the vaccines in the coming weeks.
Michael Li, vice-president of BookJane, said the app uses technology to deploy staff to health care facilities, including long-term care homes, hospitals, or in Sudbury's case, vaccine clinics.
"We're using technology via a mobile app to be able to deploy workers out to these facilities quickly, as opposed to them having to pick up email or a phone call or something much slower," Li said. "We can do hundreds of thousands of people instantaneously at the same time."
