The eHealthcare Leadership Awards program, which drew nearly 1,100 entries last year, recognizes the best websites and digital communications of healthcare organizations, online companies, pharmaceutical/medical equipment firms, corporate suppliers, and business improvement initiatives. The program is presented by a leading publication for Internet knowledge and management.

The growing importance of new communications vehicles and the need to address the full impact of healthcare reform in 2014 have spurred digital innovation,” says Mark Gothberg, Awards chairman and editor of “Organizations acknowledge that their websites, social media channels, and mobile applications are increasingly critical for connecting with current and prospective customers.”

The 2013 program features two new, separate award categories – Best Marketing Campaign and Best Employee Recruitment. The other 12 categories are Best Site Design, Best Health/Healthcare Content, Best Interactive, Best Mobile Communications, Best Social Networking, Best Rich Media, Best Patient Access and Convenience, Best Care/Disease Management, Best Doctor Directory, Best Overall Internet Site, Best Intranet, and eHealth Organizational Commitment.

Organizations enter under one of 17 classifications so that they compete only against others of comparable type, size, and resources. Platinum, gold, silver, and distinction awards may be given in every classification for each award category. An independent panel of individuals familiar with healthcare and the Internet evaluates entries.

Winners will be honored during the 17th Annual Healthcare Internet Conference, November 4 – 6, in New Orleans.

Major supporters of the Awards are Blausen Medical, a Houston-based supplier of medical animations and illustrations; Atlanta-based Connect Healthcare, a PhotoBooks company that provides physician directories and custom websites; Geonetric, a Cedar Rapids, IA-based supplier of comprehensive online services, including content management; Medseek, an enterprise e-health solutions company based in Birmingham, AL; Monigle Associates, a Denver-based brand and identity consultancy; and Private Health News, a Cincinnati-based supplier of e-health newsletters and CRM programs.
