The Nevada State Health Division last month launched a new H1N1 flu vaccine locator tool on its Web site as well as on a special flu update site. County-by-county information will be accessible on these Web sites. "Due to the limited quantity of vaccine available, there hasn't been any public H1N1 flu clinics scheduled for people that are in the target groups," said State Health Officer Dr. Tracey Green. "We anticipate having enough vaccine to have larger vaccination clinics for H1N1 by November. Keep checking back at the flu locator link, as this Web site will be updated frequently."
This Digital Communities white paper highlights discussions with IT officials in four counties that have adopted shared services models. Our aim was to learn about the obstacles these governments have faced when it comes to shared services and what it takes to overcome those roadblocks. We also spoke with several members of the IT industry who have thought long and hard about these issues. The paper offers some best practices for shared government-to-government services, but also points out challenges that government and industry still must overcome before this model gains widespread adoption.
