MediKeeper Launches COVID Navigator

Here’s an interesting twist as we contemplate our brave, new post-COVID-19 world. MediKeeper announced a major upgrade to its COVID Navigator mobile app. The app now enables employers to digitally identify and track which employees are vaccinated.

Once info is input, a report is sent to the employer to show an individual’s vaccination status. “MediKeeper’s COVID Navigator reduces the administrative burden of reporting and follow-up and makes it easier for HR to manage the vaccination, screening, tracking, documentation and reporting of cleared and not cleared employees,” says David Ashworth, CEO of MediKeeper. “It’s a quick and easy way for employees to submit their vaccination status and for HR administrators to benotified when an employee has been cleared or enters vaccine information.” The COVID Navigator is integrated with a case managementsolution. The app is both HIPAA compliant and HiTrust certified in order to protect privacy and security. COVID Navigator is available for companies to access from the Apple Store or Google Play.


The United States reported a record-high 4.6 million doses of COVID vaccines administered in one day,according to data published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. However, vaccination hesitancy haunts us: more than 75% of the U.S. population isn’t fully vaccinated, according to CDC data. Because of this, new cases and hospitalizations are increasing, according to CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walenky. Young people and those not vaccinated account for most of these new COVID cases.
