What can I do with a SharingSite?
SharingSite benefits patients by reducing the time and effort it takes to communicate with friends and family during a hospital stay. It also eases the challenge of telling loved ones about potentially upsetting news. Here are a few examples of ways to use SharingSite:

  • Provide updates on a pregnancy. When baby is born, you can upload photos for visitors to see.
  • Document your recovery process or ongoing care.
  • Add information about conditions or procedures straight from our health library so visitors can learn more. How do I do this? [link down]
  • Browse public SharingSites and bookmark your favorites.
  • Leave words of encouragement or notes for a patient. Or receive them from your visitors.
  • Send a note of thanks to a Community caregiver.
  • Make a donation to the Community Health Network Foundation in honor of a caregiver, to celebrate a happy health outcome, or to memorialize a loved one’s passing.

Notice to SharingSite Owners

If you have chosen to make your SharingSite public, anyone browsing may view your SharingSite. If you do not want your SharingSite to be public, you should select the Restricted option by going to "Edit Site Settings." Setting your site as restricted allows you to specify who is allowed to access your Sharingsite (requires an e-mail address for those friends or family members).

Community Health Network highly values customer feedback; we also want to protect and ensure your privacy. On public SharingSites, Community reserves the right to use the "Post a Note" feature to respond to customer feedback concerns that have been posted on the SharingSite. This provides a way for us to communicate to you and to your SharingSite visitors that we are listening and making improvements.
