The Cowin platform is the backbone of India’s Vaccination drive. It is a centralised platform for registering beneficiaries, scheduling appointments, recording vaccination status, and issuing vaccination certificates.
Third-party applications can integrate with CoWIN to provide additional features and services, such as online payments, appointment reminders, and vaccination tracking.
Revamping the Cowin Vaccinator for Hospitals
CoWIN Vaccinator was being used by 1,12,700 vaccination sites to deliver vaccinations to the citizens of India.
a war-like situation
Citizen could now get walk-in
vaccinations without prior registration
To accommodate vaccinations for a larger number of people, the portal was optimised for walk-in vaccinations. This proved to be a game changer in areas with lower digital proficiency. Now, people could walk-in to their nearest vaccination centre and get vaccinated irrespective of their ability to get a prior registration.
Minors could be registered under
their guardians ID
Vaccinating children who did not have their government ID’s yet was a big roadblock on the way to vaccinating every Indian. To solve this problem, the portal was optimised to register minors who didn’t have/carried their IDs under their guardians.
Healthcare workers could
give precise notifications
about the slots
Vaccinators needed to manage vaccine stocks and distribute slots on the basis of walk-ins, age group & the type of vaccines. To accommodate this, the dashboard was designed to give them a holistic picture of the important data.
Vaccine stocks could be
managed with transparency
The system was optimised to record incoming stocks and usage of vaccine doses easily, to maintain realtime transparency and reduce wastage of vaccines.
