SIVUH's Finance Project Manager, Peter Mallen, who commisioned Yellow Schedule to provide the functionality at the release of the first covid 19 vaccines stated as follows:
Yellow Schedule proved to be intuitive and user friendly – no-one raised a single issue with me regarding its technical performance etc. throughout the entire process. At least a hundred times it must have said to me that we’d have been lost without Yellow Schedule. The most important thing for me was that as administrators, we didn’t leave the clinical side or those attending for vaccination down once thanks to having a system that we could absolutely rely on. A big win from our adoption and management of Yellow Schedule was our exceptionally low DNA rate. The fact that the system was up and operational in no-time was equally commendable.
Jean O'Sullivan, Operations Officer at SIVUH, commented that:
YellowSchedule delivered for us at short notice on our requirement to fulfil 2-dose vaccines. We would have had a monumental task to schedule the 2-dose covid-19 vaccines, especially bearing in mind restrictions around the timing of the 2nd dose and co-ordinating that with the delivery of the vaccines. YellowSchedule have given us the ability to focus on the delivery of the vaccine by removing huge logistical hurdles.
The system is flexible and can change on a daily basis based on the number of vaccinators available each day and provides reporting functionality so that hospital staff can see who has confirmed their appointment, who has cancelled, who has not yet replied and can follow up appropriately with this small number.
