NHN Provider Resource Library
GENERAL HEALTH, PREVENTION AND SCREENING
Nebraska Health Network offers a number of educational resources to help advance our mission of delivering patient-centered, high-value care.
Pediatric and Adolescent Vaccination Guide
The World Health Organization announced that 25 million infants across the world missed lifesaving vaccines in 2021. This patient education resource helps families understand which vaccinations are right for them and the important benefits of protecting children and loved ones through vaccination.
One in five deaths in the U.S. can be attributed to obesity, according to the American Journal of Public Health. Obesity impacts 93.3 million people in the United States, yet there is little education in public schools about it. NHN's patient resource helps define obesity, discusses the health implications of weight, provides lifestyle tips and includes a patient tracking resource to help patients manage their weight.
Adult Immunization Resource: Now is the Time to Immunize
A Patient's Guide to Working with a Primary Care Provider
These resources introduce the concept of primary care providers to patients outlining the benefits of partnering with a PCP, what to expect at an appointment and how to prepare. NHN created a patient overview as well as an appointment planning guide.
Telehealth: Receiving Care Virtually
Virtual health care is becoming more and more relevant as technology advances. NHN's patient resource helps introduce the concept to patients and help them:
- Understand what appointments are appropriate for virtual care
- Know what to expect during a Telehealth visit
- Prepare when meeting with their provider virtually
Behavioral Health: Knowing What to Look For and How to Find Support

Flu and Covid Vaccine Poster Series
Our Flu and COVID-19 Vaccine series helps encourage patients to protect themselves and their community by getting their vaccine. In addition, we have Flu Shot only (no reference to COVID-19) posters available. Both series are available in English and Spanish.
Fall Risk Prevention
Falls can be devastating and according to the Centers for Disease Control, they are the leading cause of non-fatal injuries among adults. One out of every 10 falls causes a serious injury, such as a hip fracture or head injury, often requiring hospitalization. This patient-education resource reviews household modifications that can help reduce fall risks.
A Guide to Medication Adherence
Did you know that one in four prescriptions are never picked up from the pharmacy? Understanding why a patient isn't taking their medication is often the first step toward improving their adherence. This provider-focused guide highlights:
- Common reasons patients miss medications
- Early predictors and warning signs you can look for
- Prescribing habits to help drive compliance
Site of Care Communication Kit
The NHN has created three educational resources to help educate your patients on site of care and the best health-care resource depending on their needs:
- Determining What Level of Care is Best for Your Needs, educational flier for patients
- Determining What Level of Care is Best for Your Needs, educational article for patients
- Know Where To Go, a social media campaign
Coupon Card - Medication Target List
Drug manufacturers actively are promoting coupon cards for a variety of high-cost, branded medications. The selling point for coupon cards is that they reduce or eliminate the patient’s out-of-pocket expense, though the availability over time cannot be guaranteed. The consequence is that the total cost of the prescription is often MUCH higher than therapeutic alternatives.
Determining What Level of Care is Best for Your Needs: A Guide to Care Options
When patients need medical assistance, it can be difficult to know where to go. These NHN patient resources address some common symptoms that patients may experience, and which level of care is most appropriate for them including primary care, urgent care or a trip to the emergency department. The resources include a front/back patient flier as well as a patient-focused article that can be shared via your own communication channels.
Daily Self Check Series
The NHN Daily Self Check Series guides patients on understanding their condition. At-a-glance, patients can see whether they are in the Green, Yellow or Red Zone and what the recommended next steps are.
Resources in the Daily Self Check series include:
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
- Congestive Heart Failure
