Friday, November 22, 2013

Port Huron, MI -- Port Huron Hospital has been nationally recognized with two eHealthcare Leadership awards. The hospital’s website, www.porthuronhospital.org, was recognized during the Seventeenth Annual Healthcare Internet Conference held November 4 - 6, 2013, in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Port Huron Hospital was recognized with a Silver award for Best Overall Internet Site and a Silver award for Best Design.

“These awards acknowledge that we are on target with national best practices in our efforts to make access to health-related information and services available to our community.” says Leslie Boulier, digital marketing specialist at Port Huron Hospital. “We want everyone to know they can come to our website 24/7/365 when they need information about a health condition, hospital service or for general information about one of the doctors on our medical staff.”

This is the fourth year that Port Huron Hospital’s website has received an eHealthcare Leadership Award. In 2010, it was recognized in the Best Overall Internet Site classification. The website was recognized in the Best Physician Directory classification in 2011. In 2012 the website received the Gold award for Best Overall Internet Site and a Silver award in the following categories: Best Design; Best Physician Directory; and Best Interactive Website. These awards highlight the Internet’s role in achieving an organization’s business objectives and recognize the hard work that has gone into creating outstanding health Web sites.

A wide range of healthcare organizations representing a broad industry spectrum received recognition for their outstanding websites and digital communications at a special presentation. Winners were selected from over 1,100 entries.

The judges – more than 120 individuals familiar with healthcare and the Internet - looked at how the website and other digital communications compared with others in their organization’s classification. They also reviewed entries based on a proprietary multi-point standard of Internet excellence. The best overall Internet site category, for example, had to qualify on more than 40 factors.

Port Huron Hospital’s website includes information about the hospital and its healthcare partners, a calendar of classes and events, a directory of the physicians on staff and health information and videos created with input and protocols of physicians worldwide. Interactive portions of the website offer prescription renewal, class registration, convenient donation and payment capabilities, and subscriptions to an array of health information e-newsletters.
