Introduction to Community Health Outreach

Community Health Outreach can be used to communicate health initiatives, increase participation in key initiatives, and ensure the public knows where they can locate health services.

Health and Human Services agencies have learned that a community's health goes beyond just access to healthcare services. Understanding the interplay of behavior, physical and social environments, biological and genetic factors, and access to health systems helps health and human services agencies devise initiatives that ultimately increase the well-being of all residents. Increasing public health requires a robust and transparent public education campaign that provides accurate healthcare information, progress on key healthy community initiatives, and guidance needed to access assistance. A key aspect of any healthy community program is a web destination that helps the public locate healthcare providers, review key initiatives, request assistance and volunteer to help. Community Health Outreach is typically implemented by public or private health and human services agencies that want to increase the quality of life for all residents and ensure the public understands where health services can be found in the community.

The Community Health Outreach solution delivers a set of capabilities that help you launch a healthy communities web destination, provide an authoritative inventory of healthcare services, and engage the public in key health initiatives that increase the quality of life for all.
