Salesforce.com Inc. is integrating International Business Machines Corp.'s Digital Health Pass into the Work.com workplace command center, which organizations can use to track individuals' vaccine and health status, the companies said.

IBM's product uses blockchain technology to verify health credentials of individuals in the system, the company said. The individual would receive an encrypted digital wallet on their smartphone to track their health credentials, IBM added.

"Now, as testing becomes more widespread and vaccine distribution gets underway, we are expanding the availability of IBM Digital Health Pass with Salesforce to help organizations verify an individual's vaccine status and any other relevant health credentials," said Paul Roma, general manager of IBM Watson Health.
