Park Rx America is the only park prescription program to integrate a searchable park formulary with Electronic Health Records to make it easier for providers to find suitable parks for their patients.
We provide an easy-to-use online interface to manage parks in real time. Administrators can:
- Manage a team of editors
- Create area-specific owners to assign to parks
- Control all the details of each park including when to publish them to the live search
When a health provider prescribes a park through our site, a digital message is sent to the patient providing links to the parks prescribed. The patient then logs visits to the park to "fill" the prescription. Park Rx America will provide regular reports of prescriptions filled to park agencies to assess the efficacy of the program.
By evaluating the effects of park prescriptions on park utilization and measurable health outcomes, we aim to create the next generation of environmental stewards by prescribing time in local parks.
