NHS Scotland Delivers COVID-19 Vaccination Program with ServiceNow's Now

3/29/2021
NHS National Services Scotland (NSS) began using the Now Platform from ServiceNow back in 2018, starting with IT service management (ITSM). NHS NSS extended the use of the Now Platform into other parts of the organization. Built on ServiceNows Now Platform, in six weeks, NHS Scotlands vaccine management system enables the scheduling and recording of vaccinations for citizens and allows the general population to book their appointments through the Citizen Portal. The success of the project has encouraged NHS NSS business users to consider what the integration capabilities of the Now Platform could be extended to, such as taking on more of NHS Scotland's vaccination programs going forward.
