GENIE

In Hamilton, Health TAPESTRY is using an online tool from the United Kingdom called GENIE. GENIE helps clients connect with community resources.

In this tool, a client creates a profile with their location, interests and needs. Based on this information, GENIE creates a personalized list of community resources that are close to the client and can support them in their life and health goals.

In GENIE, clients can also create a diagram of their social network to get a better idea of the resources (people and groups) in their “personal community.”

By seeing the community resources and social connections around them, GENIE helps clients better understand the supports for their health in their community. The client can share this information with their health care team through a system such as kindredPHR.
