Coachella Valley Health Portal
Establish a collective fund to develop and manage a dynamic and comprehensive Coachella Valley Health Portal. The portal will be the vehicle that will implement the robust and visible media campaigns of three Clinton Health Matters Initiative- Coachella Valley Blueprint Bold Steps which address healthy eating and food quality; physical activity; and sexual health.
District Funds committed to date:
Desert Healthcare Foundation ($300,000 over 3 years)
Additional Collective Fund support to date:
Mayor Steve Pougnet, Palm Springs – Mayor’s Health and Wellness Festival ($300,000 over 3 years)
At the DHCD Board meeting in November 2013, the Board voted to support the development of a community health portal through its partnership with Mayor Pougnet. This is a three-year funding commitment. The collective fund currently has $600,000 restricted to the development and implementation of a community health portal.
Staff is assembling a technical team to help develop the scope of the project. A detailed proposal will then be developed that will include the technical, operational, and financial requirements as well as the management structure that will be responsible for content.
A Request for Proposals will be issued.
Staff will review all proposals and submit a recommendation for the vendor contract to the Board for review and discussion and consideration for approval.
