My colleagues and I have been developing VaCRO: Vaccine Clinic Reconstitution Optimizer. VaCRO is an Excel based tool that helps clinicians minimize open vial waste while maximizing immunization coverage by using the mathematical models to determine cut-off times for which it is optimal to stop reconstituting vials so vaccines can be preserved for future demand within the current cycle. This approach allows vaccine clinics to improve their immunization coverage without incurring any monetary costs.
We are looking to obtain feedback from VaCRO’s potential users. Please visit:http://pitt.edu/~vacro/to download VaCRO.
Currently, VaCRO is only available for Windows users. I will be adding VaCRO to the Technet Resource Library soon.
