Ipswich, MA (Vocus/PRWEB) March 25, 2011
A new partnership between EBSCO Publishing (EBSCO) and Dowden Custom Media (Dowden) now offers hospital marketers and digital strategists evidence-based health content along with website development services. This new partnership brings the expertise in website development and integration of Dowden’s in-house Web development team, eCrossings Media, together with evidence-based consumer health information from EBSCO’s Health Library™.
The Web development team from Dowden Custom Media helps hospital marketers simplify their online strategy and implementation process. The partnership with EBSCO enables Dowden to include Health Library’s valuable evidence-based consumer health information within the hospital websites being developed. Including Health Library means healthcare providers can enhance their Web presence by providing valuable condition and treatment information for patients and their families while including links to their related specialists and services.
Health Library is an evidence-based database, providing comprehensive coverage of health, wellness, and other medically related topics. Content is presented in an easy-to-understand manner that helps consumers make appropriate choices about healthcare. The database also features a comprehensive complementary medicine resource that includes an extensive range of natural and alternative treatments. All of the content is written by experienced medical writers, independently reviewed by medically credentialed experts and updated on a regular basis to reflect the most recent information and research available.
Dowden Custom Media is a leading provider of online brand development, best practices-based Web design and development, and full-service technology solutions for healthcare organizations. Dowden Custom Media President Sid Gokhale says the partnership with EBSCO Publishing brings valuable content into the website development process. “Dowden Custom Media’s expertise in building and enhancing online brands is a natural fit for Health Library website integration. By integrating Health Library with hospital websites, hospitals can promote their specialties and unique offerings while differentiating themselves from the competition. It will also drive traffic, increase awareness, and enhance wellness within a given community.”
