HEALTHCARE SERVICES

2-1-1′s Healthcare Services Program serves as a single access point information and referral system for Broward County, connecting anyone to available health services in a timely, compassionate and efficient manner. Trained counselors can provide callers with healthcare information such as local clinics, dental care, pre-natal care for pregnant women, prescription assistance, children’s healthcare issues, cancer prevention, treatment and support services, etc.

HITS Program

2-1-1 Broward partners with Memorial Healthcare System to offer the HITS Program which is designed to connect uninsured callers with health care. Callers are linked with Memorial’s outreach workers for enrollment into primary and preventive care programs.

If you or someone you know is uninsured, call 2-1-1 to speak with a Counselor about HITS

 

TOUCH – Transforming Our Community’s Health

2-1-1 Broward is one of 30 community organizations and coalitions collaborating and supporting the Transforming Our Community’s Health (TOUCH) Initiative. This community-wide effort aims to reduce health disparities and improve the health and well-being of the residents, commuters, and workers of Broward County. 2-1-1 Broward will maintain a comprehensive database of community resources for residents, so that they can get connected to the programs that can help them live healthy lives.

The goals of TOUCH focus on supporting public health efforts to reduce chronic diseases, promote healthier lifestyles, reduce health disparities, and control health care spending. Each of the community partners are working in one of four strategic directions:

 

 

Strategies include prevention and raising awareness of the effects of exposure to secondhand smoke; providing opportunities for physical activity and healthy foods by increasing access to healthy foods through urban farms, community gardens and farmers’ markets; implementation of Patient-Centered Medical Homes and systems for Panel Management to control chronic conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes; and to develop safer streets for all users including those who walk, use wheelchairs, bike, drive and use public transportation.
