topped the list of the healthcare industry’s best websites by winning three National eHealthcare Leadership Awards. PinnacleHealth placed in the following categories:

“PinnacleHealth’s website is an ever evolving project. We are on the edge of industry trends with interactive features such as personalization, physician connectivity, scheduling mammography appointments and requesting patient medical records,” states Michael A. Young, president & CEO for PinnacleHealth. “We are committed to providing our patients with high quality service that is valuable and convenient and the web is a key piece of this.”
The National eHealthcare Leadership Awards program was developed and first presented 13 years ago by eHealthcare Strategy & Trends, a leading industry resource published by Health Care Communications, Rye, NY. Winners of the 2012 eHealthcare Leadership Awards were selected from nearly 1,100 entries. A total of 115 individuals familiar with healthcare and the Internet judged the entries. Winners were awarded on November 14 during the Sixteenth Annual Healthcare Internet Conference in Las Vegas.
Judges looked at how websites and other digital communications compared with others in their organization’s classification. They also reviewed entries based on a proprietary multi-point standard of Internet excellence. The best overall Internet site category, for example, had to pass muster on more than 40 factors.
