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.
Deloitte Digital utilised its extensive mobile development expertise to help the Department of Health deliver the original app which places up to date, easy to understand and trusted information, which has been quality assured by medical experts, in the palm of people’s hands.
“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,” said Frank Farrall, Lead partner for Deloitte Digital.
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.
