HealthWorld Online: Promoting Healthy Living via the Internet

© James Strohecker(old)

Meeting the Needs of Managed Care and Corporate Wellness Programs
HealthWorld Online is a model for developing a flexible online resource center which can serve multiple markets. Our network was initially designed to serve growing consumer and professional demand for information, products and services relating to Self-Managed Care. Over the past two years, in building a solid foundation of content and unique, interactive information services, we have also anticipated demand from HMOs, hospitals and corporate wellness programs for customized intranet systems to meet the same demands from their subscribers, employees, and professionals. In essence, companies will receive customized ”health villages” to meet their particular needs, whether it be an intranet for employees or HMO subscribers, continuing education courses and research databases for health professionals in nutrition, wellness and alternative/complementary therapies, or information support for Self-Managed-Care information and resources for delivery of hospital out-patient services.

Possible Components of a Customized Intranet: Major Information/ Resource Centers in HealthWorld Online
HealthWorld Online currently offers dozens of unique, precedent-setting resource centers and services to consumers and health professionals through its global health village. Following are examples of the key information/resource centers in HealthWorld Online which may be utilized to form the information base and user interface (customized village) for a corporate intranet for a health industry business.

Health Clinic: Information and resources on family healthcare issues, emergency care, self-care, online professional referral databases, online ordering of laboratory services, alternative approaches to specific health conditions, and an alternative medicine center.
