Hamilton County Public Health Launches New Website
Provides Quick Access to Reports and Inspections
Hamilton County, OH…… Customers interacting electronically with Hamilton County Public Health will find easy access to a number of popular features on the agency’s new website.
The most accessed areas of the site, including various inspection reports, business portals and public health reports will be easy to find and readily available. In addition there are a number of new features designed to provide health information and updates to Hamilton County residents.
“We’ll have a feature called What’s Going Around” says Hamilton County Assistant Health Commissioner Greg Kesterman. “This section will let residents know what we’re seeing from a health perspective from around the County and provide both preventive and treatment options. We’ll also have easy access to our inspection reports, such as those for food service facilities, tattoo businesses and waste treatment systems. And perhaps most important, we’ve made it easy for our customers to do business with us online,” Kesterman adds.
Another popular area is agency health reports. These reports include a wealth of information about various health conditions such as HIV and other sexually-transmitted infections; health equity; maternal and infant health; and community health assessments and improvement plans. The site will also continue to host the Community A.H.E.A.D tool – an interactive system that allows residents to dive into individual community data to develop specific community health pictures and improvement opportunities.
Hamilton County Public Health customers will be able to conduct all business online, from buying birth and death certificates to paying for permits and licenses. There will also be forms to contact the health department to register nuisance complaints.
“It’s important that we continue to evolve electronically, as our customers have told us that this is how they’d like to do business with us,” Kesterman says. “We’re seeing more and more residents accessing restaurant reports before going out to eat; visiting us for disease treatment and prevention information; and to gain a good understanding of the health conditions affecting our County. This new site should help them do all of this and more with the click of a button.”
Hamilton County Public Health works to assure the 480,000 citizens living outside the cities of Cincinnati, Norwood and Springdale are safe from disease, injury and contamination.
