The mHealth program received national recognition and was awarded a Model Practice Program Award from the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) in February of 2012. NACCHO’s Model Practices Program honors and recognizes outstanding local health practices from across the nation and shares and promotes these practices among local health departments.

The project provided individually customized messages distributed from a secure central platform with a 24/7 accessible website operated by GenerationOne. County health care providers were able to track and trend health changes and behavior through a clinician web-based dashboard. They had access to participant responses on the clinician dashboard and were alerted by email if participants’ text responses indicated their health needed attention or if they would not make it to appointments.
The County is considering expanding the mHealth program to include other chronic illnesses and support programs in both its Primary Care and Behavioral Health clinics.
