TORONTO, ON, March 24, 2021 --- The Region of Peel in partnership with BookJane is on schedule to deliver vaccines to its 1.4 million residents. This partnership has vastly accelerated the vaccine rollout to immunize 10 per cent of Ontario’s population, as the province enters its third wave.
In only 2 weeks of partnering with BookJane, the Region of Peel was able to mobilized over 200 physicians in the first 72 hours to seven of its COVID-19 vaccination clinics across the region, with 100 per cent of all shifts filled and accepted. There was a 95 percent adoption rate in only 5 days of initiating the platform.
In early February, the Region of Peel was faced with the arduous mission of immunizing 1.4 million residents. BookJane was quickly selected as the technology solution to assist with the vaccine’s rollout. BookJane previously partnered with the Ontario Medical Association, where in April 2020, the platform mobilized over 2,000 physicians in less than a week to ensure hospitals were fully staffed, minimizing the shortage of physicians in the early days of the pandemic.
“The Region of Peel needed an easy to use system to schedule doctors at our COVID-19 vaccination clinics. BookJane set up our clinics, trained our staff and launched a user-friendly site that met our needs in only a few weeks. Working with BookJane was a pleasure; their staff were extremely responsive and helpful throughout this project. Thank you BookJane!“
– Rick Singh – Director, Enterprise Resource Planning, Region of Peel
