Dallas-headquartered Christus Health has selected Birmingham, Ala.-based Medseek to help develop its consumer portal, the company says. According to Medseek, Christus plans to implement its eHealth ecosystem.
Medseek says it will work to revitalize the health system’s Web presence and consolidate 18 sites into a single, enterprise-wide consumer portal. Existing vendor contracts require a June 2010 go-live date for the new community-facing site, which will drive increased Web traffic, greater brand recognition and high user loyalty, the vendor touts. In addition, it claims the solution will allow for future system integration, is scalable for future growth and positions the Christus network to continue effectively engaging and serving patients, residents and consumers.
Christus Health, an international Catholic, faith-based, not-for-profit health system, is comprised of almost 350 services and facilities, including more than 50 hospitals and long-term care facilities, 175 clinics and outpatient centers and dozens of other health ministries and ventures.
