Most apps are downloaded and quickly discarded after just a week or even a single-use. This can especially be the case when dealing with government apps, which typically are used seasonally or in one-off situations
The IN.gov app solves this problem by acting as a warehouse for all of the apps offered by the State of Indiana. When you need an app, just tap the screen and it downloads to your device. Along with the full catalog, it lists the most popular apps and allows the user to save his or her favorite apps, even if they are removed from the phone, for quick access.
Users can quickly contact the State via Live Chat directly from the App or reach State FAQs via the mobile-friendly platform that includes 200+ websites that are mobile compliant.
The maps utilize GPS to identify government services and attractions near the user’s current location. A simple slide feature allows the map to shrink or expand to help pinpoint locations. Additionally, the maps have different layers that include state offices, parks, beaches and historical sites. Access to Turn-by-turn navigation or calling to each location is turned on with the press of a finger.
The Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) maintains an Immunization Information System known as CHIRP (Children and Hoosier’s Immunization Registry Program). The purpose of CHIP is to collect, forecast, manage, and share vaccine data to registered medical providers in Indiana. A provider may include private medical facilities, local health departments, hospitals, schools and pharmacies. In addition an individual also may access their personal or their dependents vaccine record from their registered CHIRP provider or directly from the Indiana State Department of Health.

PREVENTING INJURIES IN INDIANA
The public health approach to prevention follows four main steps to prevent injuries and violence and minimize their consequences when they occur.
The target audience of this app includes, but is not limited to individuals and organizations concerned with preventing violence and injuries, such as healthcare professionals, public health professionals, trauma program managers and coordinators, care coordinators, injury prevention coordinators, social workers and case managers, and trauma medical directors.
Currently information sharing practices differ greatly within Indiana agencies. Some jurisdictions share information readily, perhaps to the extent of improperly disclosing information, in order to make sure that professionals working with the children and families have the information they need to best meet the needs of the family.
The guide was designed to improve communication among professionals by providing a clear picture of what information may be shared among agencies and service personnel. It summarizes how specific types of information can be shared, which parties can share this information and who can receive information regarding children and families.
By helping to incorporate what is known about injury prevention strategies into programs, practice, and policy, we can together help ensure Indiana remains safe and healthy. The intended use of this app is as a resource and reference to address the problem of injury at both the state and local level. The app also brings awareness to the problem of injury, focuses on data-driven decision making and evidence-based solutions, and identifies areas of opportunity in Indiana. This is the first edition of the app, with additional injury prevention topics and resources to be added.
