Vaccine Vial Monitoring in mSupply
Recently we went added some features to mSupply to make it more useful for monitoring and issuing vaccines that use vaccine vial monitors (VVMs).
- For each batch of vaccines you can record the VVM status. mSupply keeps a historical record of each entry, and displays the current status in the list of batches in stock on the stock tab of the item details window.
- For a particular store you can turn on a preference that sorts the list of batches (when issuing goods) in order of VVM status rather than expiry date. So mSupply changes from being “FEFO” (First Expiry First Out) to being “FSFO” (First vvm Status First Out)
- for a brief overview of using VVMs, see the WHO article What is VVM and how does it work
Where is mSupply used?
mSupply is designed to be used in developing countries around the world. You can find us in more than 35 countries.
