STAR Family Health Team
Website Design & Development

Background

Stratford, Tavistock and Region (STAR) Family Health Team is part of the Ontario Government’s approach to primary health care that brings providers together to co-ordinate the highest possible quality of care for their patients. Focusing on the community, the Family Health Team specializes in the primary needs of patients, with particular attention to chronic disease management, prevention and health promotion.

The Project

STAR Family Health Team initiated work with Sandbox Software Solutions to develop a customized and professional feeling to their website that is also easy to navigate and user-friendly. The purpose of the website is to give the clinics an online presence, provide information about their facilities and staff/team to their current and potential patients, as well as to enhance the professionalism and credibility of the Health Team. The site was developed in the powerful and easy to use INTRATUITIVE web Content Management System so that website administrators can rapidly update content without continuing recourse to a website developer.

Outcome

At the website, patients can now easily find information about their FHT, their clinic’s policies, sign up for classes, and look for health resources. Administrators can rapidly add information and news to support their community.

Since developing the website, Sandbox Software has also implemented a secure staff portal (an intranet) that allows for easy and efficient collaboration between staff members. This portal was also built in INTRATUITIVE and maintains a similar look and feel to the public-facing website.
