people can work alone or with friends or siblings who may live thousands of miles away... in order to help plan senior care needs
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 8, 2010
The relatively new online company GeriCareFinder.com has received the platinum award for "2010 Best Interactive Site" at the 14th Annual eHealthcare Leadership Award Competition in Las Vegas, confounding expectations for a new online business.
Over 260 health care organizations were ranked based on 60 different factors, including Outstanding Design, Content and Excellence, by 123 judges. GeriCareFinder.com beat out giants in the health care industry, such as M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, WellPointe, and even the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services for the platinum award, signaling its usefulness to visitors and its user-friendliness. The competition is funded by leading internet resource eHealthcare Strategy & Trends, which is published by the Health Care Communications of New York.
This is the second year in a row that GeriCareFinder has won the "Best Interactive Site" award, as in 2009 they were awarded the Gold. 2010's Platinum award was in recognition of GeriCareFinder's sheer range of options relating to the many different industries involved with caring for senior care, and for its free proprietary online cooperative tool, MyGeriCare Workspace tm. People who know little or nothing about geriatric care just search by zip code for a host of elder care services related to caring for their loved ones. GeriCare Finder's easily searchable database yields relevant, local results for all kinds of services, from finding doctors, home care, legal advisors, prescription plans, nursing homes, hospice services, long term care providers, tax advisors, retirement homes, retirement savings plans, health insurance plans, healthcare products, assisted living and much more. Other on-site tools help visitors to assess the care level they may need or future financial needs by calculating social security contributions, Medicare and Medicaid benefits, saving accounts and others.
After visitors research, find products / services and use the financial planning tools, they can use the workspace's Notes, Edit Notes and Share Notes functions to communicate with family members across the country without email, and make sound decisions regarding care. President Ron Kustek explained it as a tool where "people can work alone or with friends or siblings who may live thousands of miles away... in order to help plan senior care needs"
GeriCareFinder's database is filled with its over 17,000 business partners who provide the products and services to seniors. The site allows them easily to self-list their businesses without ever picking up the phone to call GeriCareFinder Inc. The multitude of businesses across the country that choose to partner with GeriCareFinder.com is a testament to their success in bringing those who need care and those who provide it together.
GeriCareFinder.com is the internet's first and only one stop senior care locator and information tool where people who are overwhelmed and undereducated about the complicated world of elder care can go to become educated and to easily and freely find relevant, local results.
