HealthInfoNet hits reach new heights

Date posted: 6 April 2010

The Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet is a massive web resource which provides freely accessible information for anyone working or studying in Indigenous health. This unique resource, which provides the evidence base to inform practice and policy to help 'close the gaps' in health between Indigenous and other Australians now has now broken the 2,000 'visit' per day barrier - receiving more than 2,200 visits on Monday 22 March.
The HealthInfoNet web resource is used by a wide cross section of industry. Users include Indigenous controlled community health services and their representative bodies, government, health workers, professional organisations, non government agencies, GPs and the tertiary sector.

HealthInfoNet Director Neil Thomson, who established the web resource 12 years ago, said of the increase 'The web resource is a "one-stop info-shop" for people interested in improving the health and wellbeing of Indigenous Australians. As the leading organisation bringing together this information and making it freely accessible, it is very pleasing to see continued growth in usage in this niche area. This increased usage highlights the fact that more Australians are turning to our unique and vital service in support of their work in "closing the gap"' .
