Deloitte, and the Victorian Department of Health digital services and strategy team, have recently updated the Better Health Channel mobile app. The app aims to help all Victorians remain as healthy as they can be, through a range of new features including healthy recipes and customisable environmental health alerts and notifications
The app delivers the full complement of health information from the Better Health Channel website including:
- Health conditions and healthy living – extensive information on a range of health conditions, food and nutrition, physical activity, healthy weight, health checks, immunisation and reducing alcohol and tobacco consumption.
- Healthy recipes and nutrition – includes hundreds of healthy recipes for a range of dietary requirements and lifestyle needs (e.g. low salt and sugar). You can save your favourites, and create a shopping list for when you’re next at the store.
- Relationships and family – covers an extensive range of topics from pregnancy to parenting, caring for others, and coping with relationship stress.
Frank Farrall, Lead partner for Deloitte Digital said: “We have found that mobile is increasingly becoming a key platform to help people improve their understanding of health issues and helps them actually manage their health and wellbeing through easy access to health information and health services wherever and whenever the need arises.”
