2-1-1 Maine Partners with CDC


We are pleased to report that one of our customers, 2-1-1 Maine, has partnered with the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to share vital information for state residents.

By using resource information managed in CommunityOS, VisionLink and 2-1-1 Maine partnered to set up a feed of much-needed and valuable health-related information that can be found not only in 2-1-1 Maine's CommunityOS solution (www.211maine.org), but also on an external website created by government partners (www.keepMEwell.org).

This gives residents quick and easy access to targeted health-related information. By participating in an initaitive spearheaded by Governor Baldacci's Office and the CDC, 2-1-1 Maine has further strengthened local partnerships and are supporting residents in powerful and innovative ways.

This is an important example of how the value of resource information expands as it is exchanged and delivered through multiple channels.

The launch of this significant work was announced as part of Governor's Baldacci's State of the State address last evening, which can be found here:  Gov's Address

Congratulations to the 2-1-1 Maine team.  Well done!
