The ViewMedica Patient Education System is the recipient of two Gold awards in the 2015 eHealthcare Leadership Awards. ViewMedica won for the third straight year in the Best Rich Media category, and also earned Gold for Best Interactive application.
"The Gold award for Best Interactive is really special because ViewMedica is more than just a library of videos," Swarm Interactive CEO Don Wittekind said. "ViewMedica is a powerful application full of features to help hospitals and medical practices educate their patients and market their services."
"From bumpers that allow you to add your own content before and after each video to our playlist feature that lets you create custom educational presentations, the ViewMedica player is built to handle all your marketing and education needs," Wittekind said. "And with the addition of VMcast, ViewMedica can now run your waiting room video as well."
Swarm Interactive, Inc. is the developer of ViewMedica, a Web-based informational system used by thousands of doctors around the world to educate their patients with clear and attractive medical videos. Subscribers to ViewMedica customize their own medical content library at an affordable price. Practices and patients can print hard-copy brochures describing any condition or procedure in the ViewMedica library. And, ViewMedica is accessible on most smart phone, tablet and desktop environments. All content includes closed captioning and Spanish support.
The eHealthcare Leadership Awards recognize the very best websites and digital communications of healthcare organizations, online health companies, pharmaceutical/medical equipment firms, suppliers, and business improvement initiatives. 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 websites and digital initiatives.
Winners were recognized during a special presentation at the 19th Annual Healthcare Internet Conference in Orlando, FL. An independent panel of judges familiar with healthcare and digital communications evaluated the entries, who's digital efforts were rated based on a standard of Internet excellence and how they compare with others.
