Some 260 healthcare organizations received recognition for their outstanding websites and digital communications in New Orleans on November 6 during the 17th Annual Healthcare Internet Conference. Winners of the 2013 eHealthcare Leadership Awards were selected from more than 1,100 entries.
Garden City Hospital (GCH) is proud to announce that is has been honored with the 2013 Silver eHealthcare Leadership Award for Best Doctor Directory. The physician directory, built by Biznet Digital, of Southfield, MI, showcases the more than 350 health experts of Garden City Hospital. The directory can be found at www.gch.org.
“When you’re sick, you’re looking for more than a phone number,” says Kim Moore, Director of Public Relations and Marketing at Garden City Hospital. “You want to learn as much as you can about the person you trust with your health.”
Guests searching the GCH physician directory have the option to meet a GCH doctor online by viewing their image, specialty, professional biography, languages spoken, office hours, medical education and recently printed articles. Visitors also have the ability to request an appointment online.
“We’re delighted that Garden City was recognized for its dedication to using digital technology to improve the customer health care experience,” says Kevin Krason, CEO of Biznet Digital. “For example, they invest in resources to keep data current and accessible by laptop or mobile device.”
Winners represented 17 industry classifications, from hospitals and health systems to pharmaceutical firms and online health companies. Awards were given in 14 different categories: Best Mobile Communications, Best Patient Access and Convenience, Best Site Design, Best Health/Healthcare Content, Best Interactive, Best Care/Disease Management, Best Employee Recruitment, Best Doctor Directory, Best Social Networking, Best Rich Media, Best Marketing Campaign, Best Overall Internet Site, Best Intranet, and eHealth Organizational Commitment.
