Carbon Health Launches COVID-19 Vaccination Platform to Accelerate National Rollout
15 January 2021 - - US-based healthcare provider Carbon Health has launched Carbon Health Vaccinate, a platform that allows local governments to more efficiently manage vaccine operations, and for any person to easily check their eligibility for a COVID-19 vaccine and sign up for a vaccination appointment, the company said.

The company also announced its first partnership with the city of Los Angeles and CORE (Community Organized Relief Effort) to support the city's COVID-19 vaccination program, providing management technology, and administrative oversight to help stem the pandemic and increase vaccination capacity in Los Angeles to an additional 20,000 people a day.

This partnership and the new vaccination technology solution will allow the city of L.A. -- and others across the U.S., to accelerate the vaccine rollout during a crucial time in the COVID-19 pandemic.

Carbon Health Vaccinate is the first comprehensive, HIPAA-compliant healthcare infrastructure platform that can help local governments efficiently and effectively compute vaccine eligibility and manage vaccination operations.
As a unified, integrated system, Carbon Health's platform simplifies the ability for people to sign up for a vaccine. It is currently available in Los Angeles, and eligible patients can book appointments for vaccines across several locations, including Dodger Stadium.

Carbon Health's vaccination platform is available for other cities and counties across the country.

Carbon Health is the national healthcare provider that provides its patients with omnichannel care. Carbon Health also provides value-based care to enterprise partners across a broad range of industries, including academia, sports, entertainment, biotechnology, and travel.

Carbon Health is headquartered in San Francisco and provides both in-person and virtual care access to nearly two-thirds of the U.S. Founded in 2015, Carbon Health is backed by Dragoneer Investment Group, Brookfield Technology Partners, DCVC, and Builders VC.

The city of Los Angeles launched its testing program on March 20, 2020, to test first responders and vulnerable individuals.

Led by the LAFD, and in partnership with Curative and CORE, it has become one of the largest municipal COVID-19 free testing programs in the country.

At Mayor Garcetti's direction, free testing was rapidly offered to all residents, with or without symptoms, whether or not they have insurance. Carbon Health opened its clinic in Echo Park to serve as the City's first walk-up testing center, where it tested more than 7,600 people.

Since then, the City has tested over 3.6 million people and can test up to 28,800 people each day across eight City testing sites and up to six mobile testing sites.

Program operations were expanded in partnership with the USC School of Pharmacy and Curative to include flu vaccinations in September 2020.

Most recently, in December 2020, the City and County added COVID-19 vaccinations at four sites in areas significantly impacted by COVID-19. Since December 30, the City has vaccinated over 38,000 healthcare workers.
