MEDSEEK Convert Delivers Unified Website for Health System, Consumers and Patients

Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) August 27, 2014

One of Healthcare's Most Wired, Adventist Health, has further expanded its technology offerings to provide consumers and patients a dynamic experience online using MEDSEEK, the provider of strategic patient influence solutions.

With 15 diverse sub-sites under one corporate umbrella, Adventist Health recognized the necessity of presenting a unified health system online. We wanted to make it as easy as possible on the patient to find important information and identify with us as a health system, regardless of which facilitys website they were on, stated Rita Waterman, AVP, Corporate Marketing and Communication, Adventist Health. To accomplish these goals, the Adventist Health team knew they needed all of their sites on one platform with a common Information Architecture (IA).

We needed a partner that was both a leader in implementing platform websites as well as an expert in consumer engagement for healthcare, stated Heather Preston Wheeler, Web Center Lead, Adventist Health. We chose MEDSEEK because they are known for both and have a successful track record of working with large health systems. Adventist Health is using MEDSEEK Convert to blend intuitive content management tools with advanced healthcare-specific applications.

Adventist Health implemented a governance structure that included subject matter experts and executives from across the health system to ensure the projects success throughout the 16 sites. Having a governance structure in place made a huge difference in our ability to prioritize the tools needed, move tasks forward, stay focused on our common goal, and work together effectively across the board, stated Ms. Wheeler.

Offering a robust web experience where our patients and families can easily communicate and connect with us online is now a reality, stated Jenni Glass, Communication Coordinator, Adventist Health. The user-friendly site helps our communities become more knowledgeable about their health, and the physicians and services that will best meet their needs.

Goals for the future of AdventistHealth.org include expanding their Search Engine Optimization (SEO) capabilities using the MEDSEEK Convert tools, incorporating additional details about their ambulatory sites and physicians services, further integrating health content and physician directories across all sites, using Google analytics to enhance content, sharing best practices across sites, and more. We are excited about the unified brand and responsive design that our initial site offers, but we also realize the online journey never ends, stated Ms. Wheeler, Adventist Health. We have a trusted partner in MEDSEEK and will work to continually evolve and enhance the site to best serve our patients.

We look forward to continually supporting Adventist Healths mission to provide a superb online experience for their patients, stated Dale Edwards, EVP, Account Management, MEDSEEK.
