MEDSEEK Announces the Next reThinking eHealth Webinar on December 3, 2008

MEDSEEK, a leading provider of enterprise portal management solutions, announced today that the next reThinking eHealth Webinar will describe why hospitals have been unable to track and report a return on information and a return on investment for eHealth Web portals and will outline the steps a hospital can take to ensure a Web portal will be successful.

In today's economic downturn, hospital executives are facing difficult decisions. They must review all plans for major investments and decide which projects they should fund, all while being able to show a return on the investment.

The eHealth world has developed faster than the tools to measure it. This has made it difficult for executives to take full advantage of the power of eHealth portals. Until this issue is addressed and accurate measurements are provided, organizations will continue to misalign their priorities and impede growth.

This informative Webinar will provide the key criteria needed to prove effectiveness and the tools needed to capture the data. MEDSEEK's eHealth experts will present the analytics they have developed to track the effectiveness of a hospital's eHealth portal. The measurements are in both a Return-On-Information and a Return-On-Investment.

They will describe the foundation of their eROI²™ tools to enable hospitals to measure the competitive, productivity and financial impact and will also provide examples of the success of eHealth patient portals, physician portals and employee portals at hospitals around the country.
This presentation of the reThinking eHealth Webinar Series will be held Wednesday, December 3rd at 2pm EST/11am PST. Attendees must register to attend online at

As part of MEDSEEK's commitment to advancing eHealth education, the reThinking eHealth Educational Webinar series is provided at no cost and will be held monthly. In addition to participating in the Webinar discussion, attendees will receive a complimentary copy of the slides on the topics presented.
