SAN DIEGO – The County of San Diego has launched three innovative Web portals to make accessing local and national health and safety data and resources easier. The portals, hosted by Network of Care, provide directories of local public health, domestic violence and re-entry services. They also have resource libraries and encyclopedias, social networking, policy documents and news updates.
To access the new portals, visit LiveWellSD.org and click on the “Individuals & Families,” and “Policy Experts” buttons on the home page to access the local Network of Care sites. Visitors can also check out all six San Diego County portals by visiting http://sandiego.networkofcare.org/
“Our Network of Care sites give our local community members and partnering organizations access to the latest information and best practices about priority areas for health, safety and well-being,” said Health and Human Services Agency Director Nick Macchione. “Educating residents and providers by making data and resources accessible is an important part of Live Well San Diego, our County vision for healthy, safe and thriving communities.”
The portals provide information about model practices from around the nation and local collaboration tools. The sites integrate statistics from the National Data Warehouse and other sources into a collection of more than 100 local health, safety and quality-of-life indicators specific to the San Diego region.
Service providers can share challenges and ideas by using the Network of Care’s communication tools, such as the Social Network of Care and community calendars.
The three new sites round out a comprehensive package of local Web portals that also includes service members and veterans, Aging & Independence Services, and Behavioral Health Services.
The Network of Care is a partnership between the National Association of City and County Health Officials and Trilogy Integrated Resources.
To increase accessibility and accommodate the Network of Care’s users, the sites’ innovative technology provides near-universal access, regardless of literacy or income level, to Web-based services through dynamic translation software and other adaptive technologies. The site is fully ADA-compliant. The Network of Care sites are also accessible in multiple languages.
