Coconut software will equip communities with the technology to schedule and organize in-person vaccine appointments more efficiently.

“It’s really cold outside in Canada and people should not have to stand outside in -50 waiting for their vaccine,” Coconut software CEO Katherine Regnier said.

“There are better ways to do this now with digital technology.”

Regnier said this project came to fruition when it was realized the company could help people that haven’t always received proper healthcare.

Regnier said the formatting of the planning software will vary between communities.

“It will be up to each community as our system’s highly configurable. They will get to keep it as locked down as they’d like and they’ll get to decide how they’ll engage with the public,” she explained.

Regnier doesn’t know how many will be using the technology but encourages communities to contact the organization if they are interested.
