Epilepsy.com Wins Silver for Best Patient Care/Disease Management Website at the 2007 eHealthcare Leadership Awards - Honored at Healthcare Internet Conference in Las Vegas
Date:11/14/2007

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Some 225 healthcare organizations, representing a broad industry spectrum, received recognition for their outstanding websites at a special presentation in Las Vegas on November 4 during the Eleventh Annual Healthcare Internet Conference. Sites receiving the 2007 eHealthcare Leadership Awards were selected from more than 1,100 entries. A total of 101 individuals familiar with healthcare and the Internet judged the entries.

The patient education and community website http://www.epilepsy.com provided by the Epilepsy Therapy Project and developed by Zoomedia, http://www.zoomedia.com, won Silver in the Best Patient Care/Disease Management category. Epilepsy.com provides patients with over 3,500 pages of educational and rich-media content and supports a growing community of over 23,000 users who chat, blog and post user-generated content on a daily basis.

Epilepsy.com is an online resource provided by the Epilepsy Therapy Project. Its mission is to inform and empower two groups of patients and their families: those facing newly diagnosed epilepsy, and those struggling with epilepsy that has resisted treatment.

"A few years ago, early in our planning process, individuals with epilepsy and parents of affected children observed that the trail of useful information petered out just 'one or two clicks down' into most sites. The current situation is not much different, as reputable sites continue to provide mostly simplistic, bland information that avoids opinion and areas where controversy exists. Epilepsy.com was created to provide in-depth information about epilepsy and the many treatments that are available for it, in a form accessible to nonprofessionals.

"We want the site to capture, organize, and make widely available the real-world experience of the doctors and nurses who treat epilepsy and of the families who live with it. Our goal is to use this user-generated content to build upon a foundation of proven scientific evidence and thereby provide an invaluable resource for individuals who need reliable information. This award validates the success of our efforts and helps drive awareness across the healthcare community of our mission," said Dr. Steven Schachter, Editor in Chief of http://www.epilepsy.com.
