Digital Strategy. The new buzzword. A fancy way (in government-speak) of saying we’re going to manage the Web strategically; cut loose our content, work better and put people first. We have a start, but we have miles to go, and we need you to help guide the way.
The concept rocks! But it demands serious change. We need your ideas. We need to ask your opinion. And we will listen.
HHS is fortunate. We are a leader in much of what the new Digital Strategy embraces. Click the four tabs above to see some of our initial efforts. From making cancer information available on smartphones to creating APIs that let people learn about influences on health in their communities; from creating one-stop shopping for critical information to opening our content to persons with disabilities, we are putting people first.
Beneath each tab, we ask you to tell us what you think, and to suggest next steps. Our goal is to provide public health information—any time, any place and on any device—so it’s available whenever and wherever you need it.
Your comments will be posted. People will be invited to post thoughts and ideas and you are encouraged to respond to others' comments. We want and need a dialogue. And then we’ll close the loop, explaining how your collective comments—along with the metrics we collect on user experience—have impacted and influenced our work.
Much more to come. Please return often and engage with us! We have a rare opportunity to create a new web paradigm—one that draws people in, even as we let our content out. Please let me know what you think as we expand this new way of doing our digital business.
