Miller Systems Technology Enhances Second Healthcare Website for Priority Healthcare Corporation

HepatitisNeighborhood.com Offers Comprehensive Information, Resources, and Support for Patients, Families, and Physicians

Boston - January 06, 2004

Miller Systems, one of Boston’s premier technology consulting firms specializing in Web engineering and IT consulting, today announced that its innovative design, development and hosting services were used in the re-development and re-launch of the Priority Healthcare’s Hepatitis Neighborhood website. This marks the second major community disease website collaboration between Priority and Miller.

“Our internal development team was able to work with the platform Miller Systems built for our Fertility Neighborhood website and have Hepatitis Neighborhood re-developed in a record 45 days -- within a fraction of the original site’s cost,” said Alex Gramling, Senior Director of Marketing at Priority Healthcare.  “The result is an easy to navigate site with a robust offering of specialized information and a supportive community for Hepatitis sufferers.”

Priority Healthcare’s Neighborhood websites represent a natural and important extension of the company’s healthcare mission with in-depth, easy-to-understand educational information related to the clinical aspects of complex diseases. The sites also cover psychosocial aspects by offering support and information on stress and emotional well being.

Visitors to Hepatitis Neighborhood receive valuable, frequently updated content.  They can participate in “Ask A Nurse” message boards and live chats, attend events, and subscribe to newsletters and email updates.

Working closely with Priority Healthcare’s internal IT team, Miller Systems provided development support and hosting for the site.  The new site utilizes a variety of innovative and industry-standard technologies including RedDot Solutions’ Professional CMS, Microsoft’s .NET and SQL Server technology.  Many of the applications Miller Systems designed and developed for Fertility Neighborhood were leveraged in Hepatitis Neighborhood, including the site’s member management and broadcast e-mail capabilities, powered by Miller Systems’ award-winning dataDriver ePush technology.

“Miller Systems’ primary goal has always been, and remains, to foster long-term client relationships by delivering excellent results,” said Seth Miller, Founder and CEO of Miller Systems.  “Hepatitis Neighborhood is an excellent example of our ability to employ re-usable design and reliable technology solutions to deliver excellent return on a client’s investment.  It illustrates why clients, such as Priority Healthcare, keep coming back to Miller Systems for their web development projects.”
