QuickVaccine: Technological innovation for adult immunization in Spain

JUNE 14, 2024 BHH Members Initiatives

Adult vaccination rates in Spain are worryingly low, with only 30% vaccinated against pneumococcus and less than 50% against seasonal flu. This situation poses a serious challenge to public health, increasing the incidence of preventable diseases and healthcare costs.

In response to this problem, the Ramón y Cajal Hospital and the Ramón y Cajal Institute for Health Research (IRYCIS) developed QuickVaccine in collaboration with BHH member GooApps. QuickVaccine is an innovative application designed to improve adult vaccination coverage through personalized recommendations based on factors such as age, location, and health conditions.

The article describes the creation process of QuickVaccine, from identifying the need to improve adult vaccination to implementing advanced technological solutions. The collaboration between the hospital, IRYCIS, and GooApps has been key to the project's success, resulting in an application that not only informs but also motivates users to proactively manage their preventive health.

QuickVaccine uses an algorithm that generates personalized vaccination recommendations and features an intuitive user interface. Additionally, it includes functionalities such as personalized notifications, detailed information about vaccines, and a vaccination history log. The application has proven effective in improving vaccination rates and facilitating public health management.

Since its launch, QuickVaccine has received positive feedback from both users and medical professionals. The application has significantly improved vaccination management efficiency at the Ramón y Cajal Hospital and has the potential to be adopted nationally to address disparities in vaccination coverage.

GooApps has played a crucial role not only in technological development but also in the continuous promotion and support of the application. The collaboration has positioned QuickVaccine as an indispensable tool in preventive medicine, offering a scalable and adaptable solution to improve public health in Spain.
