Network of Care
JACKSON, Wyo. (July 10, 2017) — Healthy Teton County has launched the Network of Care, a comprehensive online platform that provides an up-to-date directory of community health-care resources and social services.
The goal of this project is to improve access to care, increase coordination between providers, and reduce duplication of services. When accessing the site, people will also be able to access a state-of-the-art dashboard of more than 170 community health statistics customized for Teton County. This remarkable feature lets policy makers and the community alike better assess the health needs of the community and thus more accurately plan for improvement. The dashboard is regularly updated.
In 2015, the Healthy Teton County (HTC) Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) identified Access to Healthcare as the primary health need in Teton County. HTC is a community health initiative led by Teton County Public Health and St. John’s Medical Center, with participation from over 25 local organizations.
HTC also created action groups and implementation plans for all of the top ten identified health issues in Teton County. The HTC Access to Healthcare Action Group identified a well-informed and interconnected healthcare network as one essential step to improving access to healthcare.
“It’s very exciting to see this year-long project completed,” stated Public Health Director Jodie Pond. “This web-based resource will be extremely easy to access and provide up-to-date health and social-service information for the community.”
The new Network of Care website essentially serves, for the first time, as a one-stop shop for both health data and services in Teton County.
The Network of Care is easily customized to any jurisdiction. If you have any questions or would like a more in-depth demonstration of how the Network of Care works, please contact Bruce Bronzan at BBronzan@trilogyir.com or (415) 458-5900.
