CDC Offers August 9 RealOpt© Training on Vaccination and Point-of-Dispensing (POD) Sites – The next CDC virtual instructor-led RealOpt© training session on vaccination and point-of-dispensing (POD) sites will be held on Monday, August 9. Participants will learn the basic components of RealOpt©, a computer modeling program that determines POD or vaccination site staff requirements and examines process efficiencies based on site-specific configurations. With this tool, participants will learn to manipulate existing POD and vaccine flow models and how to run and interpret the performance reports. By the end of the session, participants will have learned how to build or modify their own models to identify where staff should be allocated and how to eliminate bottlenecks and optimize processing times.
Registration for the RealOpt© training session is completed through CDC TRAIN. Please note the training registration deadline is seven days prior to the course delivery date. An additional training session will be held on Thursday, September 16.
