All information on the Italian Post Office platform for booking and tracking vaccines which Lombardy will also use
While the Italian vaccination campaign, after the temporary stop of Astrazeneca, tries to accelerate, the government of Mario Draghi hopes for an organic and coordinated action by the Regions in order to really catalyze the inoculation of the various drugs.
The solution hoped for, also by the commissioner for the Covid emergency, Francesco Figliuolo, is that of adopting the Post Office platform, currently used by only 6 regions: Lombardy, Sicily, Calabria, Marche, Abruzzo and Basilicata. All the others, on the other hand, move in no particular order.
Let's go step by step.
WISHES AND INTENTIONS OF THE GENERAL SON
Francesco Figliuolo, extraordinary commissioner for the Covid-19 emergency, aims to speed up and organize the Italian vaccination campaign in a uniform way. And it is for this reason, writes Repubblica, that after receiving the vaccination plans from the individual governors, it plans to send an expert in planning to each region. The goal is not to waste time and to speed up the vaccination campaign throughout the peninsula.
CHILD CONCERNED ABOUT VACCINATION MODE
What is worrying, even in the face of the 52 million vaccines that should arrive in Italy in the second half of the year and the expansion of the audience, is the holding capacity of the various regional booking systems, many already in difficulty.
EXTRAORDINARY COMMISSIONER WISHES THE ADOPTION OF THE POST PLATFORM
On this front, the hope is that more and more regions of Italy will decide to "rely on the national platform made available by Poste and currently used by only six Regions", writes MF Down Jones.
LOMBARDY WILL USE POST PLATFORM
And the Italian Post Office platform, in the next few days, will be activated in Lombardy.
After the new flop with the SMS of vaccination reservations, which never arrived, the Region led by Attilio Fontana is ready to say goodbye to Aria, the regional company born from the merger between Lombardia Informatica and the Arca purchasing center, which until now it was the management of the vaccination booking portal was entrusted.
WHO USES THE POST PLATFORM
The platform is currently used by 6 different Italian regions. In addition to Lombardy, Sicily, Calabria, Marche, Abruzzo and Basilicata also rely on the system, which is divided into 4 channels.
HOW THE MAIL PLATFORM WORKS
The IT platform for tracking and administering vaccines for Covid-19 ensures the Regions that use it an online booking system, or through Postamat, postmen, and call centers, relies on Microsoft's cloud, Azure, and is free .
"With our 'agile' cloud-based computing, we have created a state-of-the-art technology platform, which delivers and tracks doses along the logistics chain, offering a multi-channel booking system in six regions, reaching approximately 35% of the population ”, explained the CEO of Poste Italiane, Matteo Del Fante.
HOW THE OTHER REGIONS MOVE
The other regions, those that do not rely on the Poste platform, move in no particular order, as Wired points out. Abruzzo, like Campania, has organized itself with its own online platform. Instead, you need to connect to the Region's website for Lazio and Emilia Romagna. In Friuli Venezia and Giulia, vaccination can be booked through the Cup of Healthcare Companies and pharmacies, or through the Call center.
In the Marche it is possible to book the vaccine on the portal of the single regional health agency, while Molise has opened a special web page. In Puglia it is possible to book vaccination through the PugliaSalute website, in pharmacies enabled for the Farmacup service and through the Cup of your local health authority, while Tuscany contacts directly the patients of the age group affected by the vaccination, through a general practitioner. And the Piedmont organization also relies on its GPs.
Umbria relies on the Cup Umbria portal and the regional pharmacy network, while Sardinia contacts patients through the Cup secretariats, as does Veneto.
