Regional Healthcare site online

TICONDEROGA North Country Behavioral Healthcare Network (NCBHN) has announced the full implementation of its new Network of Care websites websites that will provide individuals, families and providers online access to information about mental health, substance abuse and developmental disability services in the region.

The four counties participating in the program are located in Northern New York and include Essex, Franklin, St. Lawrence, and Jefferson Counties. The counties contracted with NCBHN to coordinate site development with Trilogy Integrated Services, the California-based company that developed Network of Care. The new websites, found at www.northcountrynetworkofcare.org, are now available for public access.

The website includes:

a service directory that contains information about specific services available;

a library which includes access to Healthwise Inc., who offers unbiased, evidence-based information on more than 4,000 health topics;

legislate, which allows users to follow state and federal legislation; and

insurance information about health coverage available in the community.

North Country Behavioral Healthcare Network is a co-sponsor of the Network of Care website working with the four counties participating in the project.
