WALTHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Quantia Inc. (Quantia), a pioneer in physician engagement and alignment, today announced that its online physician community, QuantiaMD, received the gold prize for “Best Overall Physician-Focused Internet Site” in the 2014 eHealthcare Leadership Awards, which recognize the healthcare industry’s best websites and digital communications. This is the second year in a row that Quantia received a top honor in this category based on its ability to deliver engaging, interactive clinical content to physicians. The eHealthcare Leadership Awards are sponsored by Strategic Health Care Communications, a wholly-owned division of Health Care Communications that provides information on business development, marketing, and internet strategies.
On QuantiaMD, 225,000 U.S. physicians spend an average of 20 minutes per session in rich interactions learning from experts, asking questions, and receiving practical advice from peers. By blending expert-led interactive content, social technologies, and game mechanics, Quantia creates valuable learning experiences physicians want to explore.
“Physicians are at the center of healthcare delivery, so ensuring that they receive the information they need to do their jobs better is critical. However, physicians are overwhelmed with information and simply don’t have enough time to keep up. Through QuantiaMD, they receive practical advice from experts in a succinct format that is easy to digest and apply to practice,” said Mike Coyne, CEO of Quantia. “We are honored that QuantiaMD has once again been recognized for its design and ability to transform the way physicians learn and work to improve patient care.”
eHealthcare Leadership judges reviewed more than 1,000 entries across 14 different categories this year, specifically focusing on how websites and other digital communications platforms compared against others in the same categories. Judges also reviewed entries based on a proprietary multi-point standard of Internet Excellence. The best overall internet category in particular was evaluated on more than 40 factors.
“The demands of healthcare reform and an increasingly competitive environment have accelerated digital innovation,” says Mark Gothberg, eHealthcare Leadership Awards chairman. “Organizations have made major improvements in their websites, expanded use of social media, and are employing mobile applications to engage current and prospective customers and enhance quality and operational efficiency.”
