The program is presented by Health Care Communications, a provider of marketing, communications, and business development information since 1984.
"Digital innovation has accelerated to deal with a highly competitive landscape and to meet the demands of today's discriminating consumer," says Mark Gothberg, Awards chairman. "Organizations realize that their websites, social media outlets, mobile applications, and multi-channel marketing are vital for engaging current and prospective customers and improving operational efficiency."
The 2016 program features one new award category – Best Special Event Site.

Platinum, gold, silver, and distinction awards may be given in every classification for each award category. An independent panel of individuals familiar with healthcare and the Internet evaluates entries.
