http://www.webaward.org - The Web Marketing Association is pleased to announce the Best Healthcare Web Site Winner as part of the 10th annual international WebAward Competition, the Internet’s premier website award competition.
“The health care industry is very competitive when it comes to Web development,” said William Rice, President of the Web Marketing Association. “Consumers have high expectations from help care Websites because they can better understand medical issues by visiting health care web sites. Companies can benefit from the independent evaluation of their online efforts that the award judges provide.”
Each website is judged on the same seven criteria including:
- Copy writing
- Ease of use
The overarching goal of the WebAward Competition is to provide a forum to recognize the people and organizations responsible for developing the most effective healthcare websites on the Net today.
