Public Health Ontario (PHO) is developing a new website with many enhanced features that will bring our information, knowledge and support to your fingertips. In winter and spring of 2011, a number of activities, such as focus groups, surveys, and interviews, occurred with the field to establish the framework and requirements for PHO’s online platform and web-based strategy. Based on this field input and priorities, as well as PHO’s own program and corporate priorities, the new website will be a robust, secure, and easy-to use platform with four key components: searchable library, e-learning tools and training, central analytics, and communities of practice.

Today’s presentation will highlight the four components and how we’ll be engaging our clients in the next steps. Participants will learn about the platform’s interactivity, customization, collaborative features, how these various components will support their work in public health. This overview is just an introduction as we engage clients in the design and testing of the new platform and its features over the coming months.
