Connecting people with right information at the right time

Connecting people with the right information, at the right time

10 July 2014

Linkage is helping more New Zealanders than ever connect with the right health, wellbeing and social services, at the right time.

The Linkage website is a community resource and recent statistics show it’s making a difference in the lives of people throughout the country, now more than ever. There’s been a 27 per cent increase in total visits and a 158 per cent increase in total page views in the last quarter.

Since 1 January this year, www.linkage.co.nz has had more than 750,000 page views, 100,000 visits and Webhealth provider listings have been viewed more than 370,000 times.

During the last quarter (1 April-30 June), increases in website statistics have been particularly significant.

“We are thrilled with this," says Kristy Townsend, Linkage general manager. "The Linkage website is helping us achieve our dream, to strengthen the wellbeing of every community by forging opportunities to access health and social services…and results like these reinforce we are on the right track.”

The site features information on all Linkage’s services, a community noticeboard that includes jobs or opportunities, events and notices, and the Webhealth directory.
