Roanoke-based Internet site development firm, SiteVision has been selected by the Georgia Hospital Association to develop a nursing home web portal for its emergency preparedness program, GHA911. Georgia911 is a website that provides emergency and medical disaster information to Georgia hospitals and EMS organizations. SiteVision’s goal will be to modify the Georgia911 website to include member home pages and specific data for nursing homes and long-term care facilities.
Here is the press release from SiteVision.
Roanoke, VA December 6, 2012: The Georgia Hospital Association (GHA) has chosen SiteVision to develop a specialized nursing home module for the Association’s Emergency Preparedness Program – GHA911. The online website portal is a web browser-based application created to enhance the distribution of critical emergency management information needed by Georgia hospital and healthcare providers, as well as other local and state agencies.
GHA is a non-profit trade association whose mission is to promote the health and welfare of the public through the development of better hospital care for Georgia’s citizens. The Georgia911 website provides a hub for vital news, information, tools and diversion status for Georgia hospitals and EMS organizations. SiteVision was earlier chosen to implement a Crisis Care Module. The new module will modify the existing GHA911 application to handle the needs of Nursing Homes.
As threats to human health and national health security are always present, whether by natural, unintentional or intentional means, such threats can rapidly overwhelm public health and healthcare systems. Under the guidance of US department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and its Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) GHA focuses on preparedness planning and response to strengthen the capabilities of Georgia hospitals and health care systems in public health emergencies and medical disasters. The GHA911 hub is critical to this mission.
The new effort is designed to bring long-term care and nursing homes into the Georgia 911 portal; thereby, further enhancing the healthcare coalitions between Georgia’s state and local entities and between various public and private health care institutions.
Specifically SiteVision will modify the existing GHA911 application to include Nursing Homes and Nursing Home Management Organizations (NHMO’s) with custom member home pages, navigation specific to nursing homes, and new data points specific to nursing homes such as contact information and key personnel. New administration features will help manage organization approvals, bed counts, and special needs. Included are Training videos and help documentation. A variety of other enhancements include the ability to update ad hoc and Council Coordinator reports.
