LAS VEGAS, Nov. 15, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- CareTech Solutions, an information technology and Web products and services provider for more than 150 U.S. hospitals, today launched the next generation of its popular hospital website content management system (CMS), CareWorks™ 4.0, during the Healthcare Internet Conference in Las Vegas.
"As more hospitals and health systems use the Internet to connect with patients, they're finding today's content management systems just don't offer the features and functions needed to guarantee secure information exchanges," said Bill Moncrief, client executive for Web Products and Services, CareTech Solutions. "All of the enhancements built into CareWorks 4.0 reflect CareTech's commitment to hospital marketing teams who need their websites to offer the latest interactive functions with the assurance the information exchange process meets Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance."
CareWorks 4.0 new features and functions include:
Audit Reporting enables authorized administrators to track website activity and validate compliance with HIPAA and PCI regulations.
Directory provides the ability to securely create, manage, and publish collections of data/information that can be deployed anywhere on the website. Common uses of the directory module include: staff directories, clinical trial listings, cafeteria menus, frequently asked questions, healthy recipe libraries, patient stories, etc.
Mobile Web makes various sections of the hospital's website available via a mobile device. The mobile modules includes: find a physician, locations and directions, contact us, emergency room wait times, and more.
Content Staging offers content administrators the ability to work on Web page revisions without affecting the live production site. Multiple versions of draft Web page can reside in the content staging area, helping administrators to plan for both short and long-term requirements.
Form Designer allows for the creation of forms using a drag-and-drop interface.
Structured Search allows website visitors the ability to search for specific topics of interest and delivers the results grouped into categories by type. Visitors can control which areas of the site are searched and also search by exact keyword or multiple keywords.
