Birmingham, AL — MEDSEEK, the industry’s only provider of the optimal 360-degree online healthcare experience, announced today that it has won the 2011 Frost & Sullivan North American Health Records Technology Leadership Award, which recognizes MEDSEEK’s leading role in the development and leveraging of new PHR technologies, brand perception and customer value and validates MEDSEEK’s pioneering of the patient experience for hospitals.
“We are honored and excited to receive this award from Frost & Sullivan,” said Peter Kuhn, MEDSEEK CEO. “The award is validation of MEDSEEK’s leadership in providing the optimal patient experience to hospitals. Our vision has always been to lead the way by delivering the best online healthcare experience for patients, care providers and healthcare organizations.

MEDSEEK scored top marks in each category defined by Frost & Sullivan including: Development of New Technologies; Leverage of New Technologies; Brand Perception; and Customer Value. Frost & Sullivan found that compared to its closest competitors MEDSEEK consistently focuses on identifying opportunities for health systems, hospitals and healthcare providers to attract prospective patients with “cutting edge interactivity features.” Frost & Sullivan recognized that MEDSEEK’s Patient Experience software provides the glue to connect a large number of hospital legacy systems and seamlessly integrates to a variety of EHR vendors’ existing products and emerging EHR systems, in addition to Microsoft HealthVault and Google Health.
The report accompanying the award notes MEDSEEK’s pioneering work in establishing best practices for usability design and workflow, leading to higher adoption of technology that closely links patients and providers and fosters a collaborative approach to health management, which, it states, “is at the very heart of U.S. healthcare reform.”
Frost & Sullivan praises the design of MEDSEEK’s eHealth ecoSystem for its ability to bridge the multiple components of the patient experience and for the competitive advantage it creates for MEDSEEK clients.
“MEDSEEK’s 360-degree Patient Experience opens an easily accessible, secure gateway into consumers’ personal health information, featuring cutting-edge design and usability while offering secured access to view health records and reports, personalized health content, reminders, and enabling transaction and relationship management with providers,” the report concludes. “MEDSEEK’s 360-degree Experience portal is designed to attract the healthy, insured, and internet-engaged consumer.”
Kuhn adds, “Winning the prestigious Frost & Sullivan Award for PHR Technology Leadership means a great deal to MEDSEEK. The award recognizes that we offer an industry-leading patient experience for hospitals that attracts, connects and empowers patients and physicians to collaboratively manage care securely, efficiently and cost-effectively.” He continues, “The award also reflects MEDSEEK’s dedication to seamless integration and our continued development of cutting-edge tools such as patient precisioning, which provides healthcare organizations with the ability to target the right patients, increase service line revenues, make better strategic decisions and ultimately effect behavior changes that lead to improved health.”
