So if a hospital or a particular organization runs the state registration and process, that doesn’t necessarily talk to other systems and other locations.”Law said his company, as a third-party outlet, coordinates with all registered vaccination site with the state throughout Indiana in signing people up for a particular time and place to get a vaccine. Once that information is entered, they send a “demand signal” to that vaccination site to have the right amount of vaccine doses ready to go for that time and place.“We do it by hour of the day so that they can start the thawing process and all of the things to minimize the waste with regards to the vaccine,” Law added.Zotec says more than 460,000 COVID-19 vaccination appointments have been scheduled using its technology with another 300,000 expected to be scheduled by the end of the month.So far just over 71,000 Hoosiers have been fully vaccinated, with another 317,000 having gotten at least a first dose of a vaccine.The online platform that Zotec has developed for vaccine scheduling that handles medical billing, appointment scheduling and analytics services, among others for healthcare providers.With revenue having dropped 40-percent from the use of the platform happening during the pandemic, Law says their partnership with the state in running the online distribution platform for COVID vaccines has helped them mitigate much of the losses they experienced in the last year.

Cricket News Virat Kohli booed in Sydney Test, Ricky Ponting calls it an ‘absolute disgrace’

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: The India vs Australia series Down Under has seen some good banter, unlike previous series where instances of sledging would lead to tense on-field confrontations. In this series, the good natured sledging between Rishabh Pant and Tim Paine has dominated social media and has made for a series played in good nature. However, no one has told this to the Australian crowds. When Melbourne saw instances of booing against Mitchell Marsh and some instances of ‘racial’ chanting against the Indian cricket team, the Australian crowd behavior in Sydney went one notch higher and their target this time was the Indian skipper, Virat Kohli.Kohli came out to bat after the fall of Mayank Agarwal’s wicket. Agarwal, who displayed maturity and scored his second fifty of the series, holed out to Mitchell Starc off Nathan Lyon. When Kohli strode out to bat, the Indian fans cheered his name but in some sections of the stadium, the Australian fans booed Kohli. The Indian skipper looked in great touch but he was dismissed for 23 in the first over after the Tea break when he gloved a short ball from Josh Hazlewood to Tim Paine.Read More | India vs Australia, live cricket score: Pujara slams 150Ricky Ponting, the former Australian skipper, has criticised the behavior of the fans. “If it was booing then it’s absolutely disgraceful. I said that in the Perth Test as well. Show some respect,” Ponting said in an interview to Channel Seven.Read More | Here’s a special request for Virat Kohli: ‘Eat Kadaknath chicken’This is not the first time that Kohli has faced such a hostile reaction in Sydney. In 2012, he was jeered and heckled by a large section of the crowd and this prompted him to show the middle finger. For this act, he was fined 50 percent of his match fee. In the past, the likes of Kohli and England pacer Stuart Broad have been subject to intense booing. Broad was booed for the entire duration of the 2013/14 tour while Kohli was also subject to intense public booing in the 2014/15 series which India lost 0-2.When Marsh suffered the fate in Melbourne, Travis Head said no Australian should ever be booed. “I understand the Victorian crowd, Petey (Handscomb) obviously missing out, but I think it’s pretty poor for Mitchy to cop that. I don’t think it is great,” Head had said at that time. Even in Adelaide, Kohli was booed by a small section of the crowd and even at that time, Ponting had voiced his disapproval. “I don’t like seeing it at all. It didn’t worry me as a player when it happened in England a couple of times. You’ve almost got to accept it as acknowledgement for what you’ve done in the game. It’ll be water off a duck’s back (for Kohli), I’m sure. He’s probably had worse things happen to him on a cricket field,” Ponting had told the official Cricket Australia website.India are in a great position in the Sydney Test thanks to a magnificent 150 by Cheteshwar Pujara as Kohli’s side aim to become the first Asian Team to win a Test series in Australia. last_img read more
