TALHO transitions to City of Houston


The Texas Association of Local Health Officials (TALHO) officially closed its doors August 30, 2013. TALHO served local public health departments across the state of Texas for over 14 years, assisting with many critical public health functions that include policy advocacy, IT infrastructure and services, program support, trainings, and conferences. TALHO also provided numerous additional benefits for public health departments and their staff, including networking opportunities, bi-monthly membership meetings, the Janet Emerson Award, and much more. 

 

Since the closing of TALHO, the City of Houston has stepped in to ensure program continuity through transition of certain critical IT services previously operated by TALHO.  These critical services include:

 

TALHO Dashboard

 

TALHO’s document share web application is still operational and can be accessed here https://dashboard.talho.org/

 

TALHO Email

 

TALHO email services are being maintained on a temporary basis. We encourage departments that are utilizing the @talho.org and @texashan.org email addresses to transition away from this service. We will provide support for this transition if needed. Please contact us using the information below for assistance. Note, ample notification and assistance will be provided for all talho.org or texashan.org email users prior to the discontinuation of this service.

 

 

TALHO Syndromic Surveillance: RODS, ESSENCE, Rollcall


TALHO Syndromic Surveillance services will continue to be supported. Please continue to access your RODS and ESSENCE applications through the same web-links that were provided to your department. If there are any issues regarding the data feeds, user accounts, or website issues, please contact us.

 

The Rollcall application info and dashboard can be found at https://rollcall.talho.org/about
