World Immunisation Week 2020: GuildLink is delivering vaccination support to Australian pharmacies

GuildLink is proud to support World Immunisation Week 2020 and is committed to delivering vaccination services support to pharmacies throughout Australia.

“Being able to provide patients with access to vaccination services is a key means of delivering improved healthcare outcomes to the community and securing pharmacy revenue,” said GuildLink CEO Arun Sharma, “GuildLink is committed to delivering state-based legislation changes as soon as possible in support of the pharmacists’ role as vaccinators and healthcare providers. GuildCare NG was the first professional pharmacy services platform to integrate with the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) and we pride ourselves on our proven history of implementing state vaccination changes within 24 hours of legislation being released.”

Vaccinations recorded in GuildCare NG are automatically sent to AIR, allowing pharmacists to both meet vaccination recording requirements and save time entering vaccination information. The AIR integration removes double handling of patient data and provides a more accurate and efficient system of recording vaccinations.

Together with GuildCare NG and its free patient-facing app myPharmacyLink, pharmacies are able to:

  • Bulk message and promote to patients the availability of professional services such as vaccinations
  • Communicate directly with patients to organise appointments
  • Use the Calendar feature to schedule internal resources to deliver such services
  • Record vaccinations in AIR

In 2019, over 13 million Australians were vaccinated against influenza, with more than two million vaccinated in pharmacy [1]. For 2020, the Australian Government has secured three million additional doses of seasonal influenza vaccines, bringing the total number of influenza vaccines available for Australians to 16.5 million [2]. This year, Australia is also the first country to offer an adjuvanted Quadrivalent Influenza Vaccine (QIV) – Fluad Quad 1
