Montgomery County Healthy Communities Coalition partners have launched an online portal to provide key health information and resources in an easy-to-read format.
The Network of Care site presents the most up-to-date health data at your fingertips. Community members and stakeholders now have free access to local health indicators, model practices from around the nation and local collaboration tools, all from one site. The site integrates statistics from multiple sources into a collection of more than 100 local health and quality-of-life indicators specific to Montgomery and seven surrounding counties. The system also brings a vetted library of “best practices” which describes how different communities with the same problem have worked toward positive change.
The Montgomery County Health Department, along with Saint Joseph Mount Sterling and Sterling Health Solutions are partners in the Healthy Communities Coalition and sponsor the Network of Care site.
The site also contains a community calendar, comprehensive and searchable health information on nearly any conceivable topic and state and federal legislative tools. The Network of Care user can research medications, health conditions, and create a personal health record to organize and store personal health information for themselves and family members. In addition to the many features that would appeal to the average community member accessing the site for personal use, those looking to do research, grant writing or in-depth analysis will find everything they require.
