Illinois was one of the first states to use wichealth.org and was also one of the first to offer on-site kiosks for client use. wichealth.org is utilized statewide and provides relief with secondary education scheduling, as well as, allows time for higher priority clients to be seen in group sessions or individually.
"Illinois WIC has embraced the wichealth.org project since it's inception. Initially, small, rural providers took it on as a way to offer variety to their participants, as well as an efficient way to provide low-risk participants an education option in addition individual contact. Over the last several years, larger agencies have begun to see the benefits of wichealth.org as well. Agencies have found space for individual workstations or kiosks in clinic areas to allow families to access wichealth.org on-site. During our most recent USDA Management Evaluation Illinois received high praise for making wichealth.org available to participants."
