Network of Care
GREENUP, Ky. – Healthy Choices, Healthy Communities (HCHC), the coalition whose mission is improving community wellbeing, has launched a free online health resource: the HCHC Network of Care
The Network of Care is now the definitive online health resource for Boyd and Greenup counties. Accessible from the HCHC website (healthychoiceshealthycommunities.com), the Network of Care subsite contains comprehensive and searchable health information on nearly any conceivable topic. The Network of Care user has the ability to research medications, utilize tools to help diagnose medical symptoms, link to both local and state health resources, access personal health calculators to determine Body Mass Index and other important health numbers and much more.
“The site presents the most up-to-date health data at your fingertips,” said Greenup County Health Department director Chris Crum. The health department, along with the Ashland-Boyd County Health Department, King’s Daughters Medical Center and Our Lady of Bellefonte Hospital sponsored the Network of Care site. All four organizations are members of the HCHC coalition.
The HCHC Network of Care site serves multiple purposes and audiences. 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 or in-depth analysis will find everything they require. “The Network of Care is a local grant writer’s dream,” Crum said. “For anyone interested in or in need of data, the site offers the most comprehensive health information, research and demographics available for Boyd and Greenup counties.”
