Presence Health Honored with Four eHealthcare Leadership Awards

Plain-English Health Care Recognizes Presence Health for Excellence in Digital Communications

(Chicago, IL) – Presence Health, one of Illinois’ largest Catholic health systems, has been awarded four eHealthcare Leadership Awards by the healthcare communications consulting group Plain-English Health Care (PEHC), a division of Plain-English Media of Alameda, CA. The four specific awards honoring Presence Health for excellence in digital communications included, Gold: Best Internet Homepage, Silver: Best Doctor Delivery, Silver: Best Healthcare Content and Winner: Mark Gothberg eHealthcare Organizational Commitment

PEHC’s eHealthcare Leadership Awards program recognizes the very best websites and digital communications of healthcare organizations, online health companies, pharmaceutical/medical equipment firms, agencies/suppliers and business improvement initiatives. These awards highlight the internet's role in achieving an organization's business objectives and recognize the work that has gone into creating outstanding health websites and digital initiatives.                                                                               

Responding to the digital communications accolades, Presence Health System Director, Marketing Communications Operations Theresa Olson commented, “While we are proud of the four awards, we are especially honored by the eHeatlhcare Organizational Commitment award. This award reflects our strategic decision made with vendor/partner Influence Health to focus on reaching customers with relevant messaging where they are and when they are ready to receive it.  This was accomplished by changing marketing operations to ensure we take a holistic approach in keeping the patient journey top of mind.” She added, “Because we understand that health care searching is episodic and the web is one of the first places customers go for information, this required that digital and mobile outreach be our top priorities. Additionally, when our customers are having an online experience, and while it must deliver what they need, it must also remain a reflection of the Presence Health brand.”
