HealthInfo content strategy

Rautaki ihirangi ki HealthInfo

HealthInfo is a Te Whatu Ora health information website. It is used by the Waitaha Canterbury, South Canterbury and Southern health systems.

HealthInfo provides high-quality information, vetted and approved locally. This means health professionals can refer their patients to it for diagnosed conditions. People searching for general health and wellbeing resources can access the same high-quality information.

Printed information quickly gets out of date. The information on HealthInfo is held and used electronically. The information is constantly reviewed, updated and added to.

All the information provided on HealthInfo is approved by clinical advisers. The clinical advisers are all qualified health professionals in the local health systems.

Health professionals can write a search term on a HealthInfo card and give it to their patient. The patient or their family can then access the information on an electronic device.

Health professionals can also print information by following the HealthInfo links in HealthPathways.
