Usability and Acceptability of the EU-GENIE Online Tool within Health TAPESTRY and Health Links

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

With this tool, a client creates a profile with their location, interests and needs. Based on this information, EU-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 EU-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 showing clients the community resources and social connections around them, EU-GENIE aims to help them better understand the supports for their health that are available in their community. The client can share this information with their health care team through a system such as kindredPHR.

Usability and Acceptability of the EU-GENIE Online Tool within Health TAPESTRY and Health Links is part of the larger Health TAPESTRY approach to primary care. Health TAPESTRY connects primary care teams with people where they live through trained volunteers, interprofessional health care teams, technology and community engagement.
