Health. Inside and Out.
As a Kansas Department of Health and Environment funded initiative that aims to reduce obesity, diabetes, heart attack and stroke in Sedgwick County, Health ICT has devised an action plan to help improve care both inside and outside of the clinic walls. The plan will incorporate intraprofessional and community resource-based care and adopt proven, evidence based strategies designed to help achieve better outcomes in these patients and improve clinic workflow. To learn more about methods, partners or sample workflows read more below. Also continue check back for updates.
Health ICT is available to provide free technical assistance. If you are interested or would like to learn more, please contact us!
