Unity’s Online Diabetes Community Receives 2013 eHealthcare Leadership Award
Unity Health System has been awarded a 2013 eHealthcare Leadership Award for the UnityDiabetesCommunity.com web site.
The eHealthcare Leadership Awards program was developed 14 years ago by eHealthcare Strategy & Trends, a leading industry resource published by Health Care Communications. UnityDiabetesCommunity.com was one of more than 260 health care organizations that received recognition at a special presentation in New Orleans on November 6.
The Unity site was one of several sites awarded in the Best Interactive category. Winners were selected from more than 1,100 entries.
“We’re so proud of the site that we’ve built and the success we’ve had with our patients and our colleagues in the field,” said K.K. Rajamani, M.D., Medical Director of Unity Diabetes and Endocrinology Services. “This web site provides an online community resource for our patients and adds whole new component to our community education efforts.”
The Unity Diabetes Online Community web site launched in 2012 as an online resource to help patients manage their diabetes. The site includes interactive patient education tools, an events calendar, as well as an opportunity for visitors to connect with diabetes experts and/or other diabetes patients using the site. The site also hosts online web chats twice a month with a Q&A session with local diabetes experts. For more information visit unitydiabetescommunity.com.
