Big tech companies and major hospitals teamed up Jan. 14 to form the Vaccination Credential Initiative, a collective working to create a digital, interoperable vaccination record system.

The coalition was formed to address the need for a vaccination record system that allows patients to conveniently access, control and share their verifiable vaccination records amid the country's efforts to achieve mass COVID-19 inoculation.

Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo Clinic, Microsoft, Epic, Cerner, Salesforce, Change Healthcare and Oracle are among the partners working on the project.
