Miller Systems Named Finalist in Prestigious 2004 Global Awards for Healthcare Communications

Recognized for Development of Patient Education Site Hepatitis Neighborhood

BOSTON - October 15, 2004

Miller Systems, one of Boston’s premier technology consulting firms specializing in the design and development of elegant online user experiences, was recognized today as a finalist in the 2004 Global Awards, the competition that honors the best in healthcare communications worldwide. Miller Systems was recognized for its work with Priority Healthcare to develop the patient education site Hepatitis Neighborhood.

Hepatitis Neighborhood is a destination website designed exclusively for those diagnosed with, or interested in, hepatitis and is managed by Priority Healthcare. As a national specialty pharmacy dealing in complex, chronic disease categories, patient education is vital to successful outcomes. The site represents a natural and important extension of the company’s educational mission with in-depth, easy-to-understand information related to the clinical aspects of this complex disease. The site also covers psychosocial aspects by offering support and information on stress and emotional well being.
 
“We are delighted to receive this recognition from the Global Award judges,” said Seth Miller, Founder, President and CEO of Miller Systems, Inc. “More than just a leading destination for individuals seeking information and support for hepatitis, Hepatitis Neighborhood encapsulates our commitment to building sites that retain an intuitive user experience at all levels.”

Now in their eleventh year, the Global Awards are recognized as the only awards dedicated to excellence in healthcare communications on an international basis. They have achieved the status of the world's most coveted healthcare awards. Categories extend over regional, national and continental boundaries, and reach out to healthcare corporations, hospitals and education groups, as well as to advertising agencies, design studios and production companies. By broadening the focus beyond advertising alone, the mission of The Global Awards is to reward not just excellence in creativity but also effectiveness.

To honor winners, The Global Awards will once again be showcased in a supplement to be distributed worldwide through the competition's network of international representatives. Additionally, all winners will be featured in the next New York Festivals Annual of Advertising, Volume Thirteen, to be published in Spring 2005.
