#59 Health Department Community Resource Directory

The Health Department has created a community resource directory and needs a way to integrate and better share with other resource directories across the city so that one central place exists for providers to update information that can be easily viewed by the public.

Why it matters

The Health Department's resource directory is designed to enable providers to find resources for patients and determine the capacity of resources such as behavioral health centers and shelters in real time. In order to provide patients with the most up-to-date, actionable, and useful information, it would be beneficial for them to have a central database that is frequently updated.

What does "good" look like?

The resource directory would be accessible from a central dashboard and give providers and patients real-time updates on resources across the city.

How could technology solve this?

Software design and development could be used to integrate data from multiple healthcare providers into a single database that can be viewed and searched using a user friendly dashboard or online interface.
