DTI Health Creates Engaged Communities for Clinicians and Patients Through InterSystems HealthShare

Bringing the Power of "Mass Personalization" to Healthcare Websites; Building Community Leadership via Engaging Experiences

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - February 21, 2011) - Digital Technology International (DTI™), a worldwide innovator in digital publishing software, today announced the launch of DTI Health, a new suite of digital content management solutions for the healthcare industry. The new solutions create an information-rich and highly personalized Web experience for physicians and patients. DTI Health works with InterSystems HealthShare technologies to seamlessly connect with organization-wide health data in a secure, private and consent-managed environment.

"A healthcare organization's website can drive leadership in their communities by combining personalized information with rich, relevant content in an engaging and personalized online setting," said Don Oldham, CEO, DTI. "With DTI Health and InterSystems, healthcare professionals now have new and powerful digital channels to inform, support, and connect with patients -- both as individuals and as a community. There is nothing more personal than healthcare. DTI Health and InterSystems HealthShare provide a new way for patients to become more proactive in their healthcare. It's a perfect fit."

Built on InterSystems' industry-leading healthcare platform technologies, DTI Health solutions include DTI Engage, DTI Discovery and DTI Lightning for deploying complete community portals, enterprise websites, and secure personalized microsites. Leveraging InterSystems HealthShare technologies, DTI Health displays the patient's information and automatically adds provider approved information that is relevant to this information. Patients can also schedule appointments, pay their bills and perform other self-serve functions that consumers routinely expect from any online experience. Together these solutions create a media rich, engaging online experience for physicians, patients, and healthcare organizations. 

"Healthcare providers increasingly seeking to project leadership in their communities but struggle with traditional marketing-based leadership campaigns that often seem inappropriate and ineffective in healthcare settings," said Paul Grabscheid, Vice President of Strategic Planning, InterSystems. "Today, web usage is ubiquitous -- after email and search, health is the third most frequent driver of web activity -- yet care providers see little of this traffic. The breakthrough is to leverage the power of communities to build a leadership position. Combining DTI Health and InterSystems HealthShare brings a breakthrough solution that transcends today's mostly static provider websites and to move up to a world of richly engaged healthcare communities. Engaged communities can be a powerful driver for a provider's leadership strategy."

DTI Health will be demonstrating engaged healthcare communities with HealthShare at InterSystems HIMSS booth 2862.
