Miller Systems' Hepatitits Neighborhood for Priority Healthcare Selected as 2004 MITX Award Finalist

Recognized as One of New England’s Best

BOSTON - October 18, 2004

Miller Systems, one of Boston’s premier technology consulting firms specializing in the design and development of elegant online user experiences, today announced that its work for client Priority Healthcare on Hepatitis Neighborhood was selected as a finalist in the Healthcare category in The 9th Annual MITX Awards.

Held annually by the Massachusetts Innovation & Technology Exchange, the MITX Awards recognize excellence in the creation of interactive technologies designed, produced or developed in New England. Begun in 1996, the MITX Awards have grown to become the most prestigious awards competition for New England’s interactive professionals, as well as the largest technology awards showcase in the country.

“We are thrilled to have been nominated as a MITX award finalist for the fourth year in a row,” said Founder and CEO Seth Miller, Miller Systems. “Our work consistently demonstrates the benefits of our rigorous processes—from discovery to development. Every day we continue to raise the bar in developing web properties that retain an intuitive user experience throughout and make conducting business online easier than ever.”

Miller Systems’ finalist submission 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. Visit Hepatitis Neighborhood at http://www.hepatitisneighborhood.com/.

“Once again, our submissions came from virtually every segment of the economy,” said Kiki Mills, Interim Executive Director of MITX. “Taken as a whole, our awards show how, in less than a decade, interactive technology has become a core technology for businesses, nonprofits, educational institutions, and many other industries.” 

Miller Systems will be recognized with the other finalists in the category of Healthcare at a gala awards ceremony traditionally attended by over 800 of the region’s top technology and business professionals. Winners will be announced at the ceremony in the Boston Copley Place Marriott on Wednesday, November 10th. Tickets can be purchased at http://www.mitxawards.org/.
