IBM Partners with Salesforce to Develop a Vaccine & Health Status Verification Solution

Separator

Salesforce recently introduced Work.com for Vaccines to help governments and healthcare organizations more safely and efficiently manage vaccine programs at scale.

IBM and Salesforce join forces to help organizations and individuals verify vaccine and health status. While people are trying to safely reopen public places, the tech giants plan to provide individuals with a verifiable and privacy-preserving way to manage and share their vaccination and health status in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. As part of this offering, IBM Digital Health Pass will integrate with the Salesforce Work.com platform.

With the new agreement between IBM and Salesforce, Workplace Command Center will give organizations a single hub to help make data-driven decisions as they look to minimize risk, take action when needed and communicate effectively, which can help safely bring employees back to offices, visitors back to hotels, concert goers back to music venues and sports fans back to stadiums. Through Work.com, organizations are also able to deliver wellness surveys to employees, visitors or travelers, help them schedule necessary COVID-19 tests and vaccinations, and send manual contact tracing alerts if there is potential exposure.

In a statement issued by IBM, Paul Roma, General Manager, IBM Watson Health, said, “At the start of the pandemic, many organizations deployed simple COVID-19 screenings, such as self-reported health surveys, to support re-entry to workplaces and other institutions. Now, as testing becomes more widespread and vaccine distribution gets underway, we are expanding the availability of IBM Digital Health Pass with Salesforce to help organizations verify an individual's vaccine status and any other relevant health credentials.”

“With Covid-19 vaccines becoming available, companies and communities around the world are focused on how to safely reopen and get back to public life,” said Bill Patterson, EVP and GM, CRM Applications at Salesforce. "Our partnership with IBM will give organizations a single platform designed to provide safe and continuous operations, deepen trust with customers and employees and do everything possible to support their health and wellbeing."
