KNOW WHERE TO GO

KNOW WHERE TO GO

An effort to help residents find and utilize a Medical Home as an alternative to ER’s, as well as Quick Care Clinics for medical non-emergencies. Collectively we can reduce non-emergency visits to the ER's, lower healthcare costs, and benefit everyone.

  • Getting care from a medical home decreases the costs of your care on average by 500%*• $18,000,000,000 could be saved per year, if a medical home is used instead of ER for care*
  • When you have a medical home, care is higher quality and more accessible**
  • 102,424 adults in Will County do not have a medical home

To help you spread the word, MAPP has developed a tool kit that contains print and website collateral for partners to use at their offices and on their own website. The toolkit is available for immediate download at willknowwheretogo.org

Creating a Culture of Wellness

The WEWILL WorkHealthy Worksite Wellness Recognition (WEWILL WorkHealthy Award) Program is an initiative of the Will County MAPP Collaborative Chronic Care Action Team to recognize worksites throughout Will County that are engaging in worksite wellness best practices. This program was developed to support the long-term goal of the Chronic Care Action Team to decrease obesity among Will County residents and was first implemented in 2013. The members of the Chronic Care Action Team include representatives from various organizations in Will County dedicated to improving chronic care issues.

The WEWILL WorkHealthy Award application is intended to be comprehensive. The intent is to represent a wide range of Will County worksites that are committed to improving employee health and well-being.
