SAN JOSE, Calif. – The Santa Clara County Public Health Department has launched an innovative, local-delivery Web portal to enhance health decision-making by providing community stakeholders, families and individuals with key health data and resources in an easy-to-read format. The Santa Clara County Network of Care for Healthy Communities (www.santaclara.networkofcare.org/ph) provides a directory of all health services; a leading health library and encyclopedia; social networking; legislative tools; nationwide news; personal health records, and much more.

Service providers can share public-health challenges and ideas by embracing Santa Clara County’s Network of Care for Healthy Communities communication tools, such as the Social Network of Care and community calendars. Service providers can even build their own free Web sites in the For Providers section.

The Network of Care for Healthy Communities is a partnership between the National Association of Counties; the National Association of City and County Health Officials, and Trilogy Integrated Resources, in collaboration with the Healthy Communities Institute.

To increase accessibility and accommodate Santa Clara County's Network of Care for Healthy Communities users, the site’s innovative technology provides near-universal access, regardless of literacy or income level, to Web-based services through a text-only version of the site and other adaptive technologies. The site is fully ADA-compliant. Santa Clara County Network of Care for Healthy Communities also is available in multiple languages.
