SCI Solutions Honored With eHealth Leadership Awards

Consumer Portal Recognized as a Corporate Business Improvement Site

LOS GATOS, CA--(Marketwire - February 10, 2009) - SCI Solutions, the premier Access Management solution provider for healthcare, was honored with three eHealthcare Leadership Awards for its Consumer Portal self-scheduling application at the Healthcare Internet Conference in Orlando November 11, 2008. The awards included 1) Best eBusiness Site - (Gold), 2) Best Overall Internet Site - (Gold), and 3) eHealth Organizational Commitment - (Finalist).

"A growing number of healthcare organizations are clearly embracing the Web and emerging technologies," says Mark Gothberg, eHealthcare Leadership Awards chairman. "The 2008 awards program attracted over 1,100 entries from a diverse range of organizations." He added, "As investments in e-business functions continue to expand and deliver a significant, measurable value, a really big payoff comes from the integration of services details with health content."

SCI Solutions Consumer Portal was recognized as a Web-based product that is used to enhance the business processes within an organization. The Consumer Portal provides many ways for patients to interact with a hospital. It enables patients to view, pre-register and schedule their individual and family healthcare appointments online, at their convenience. Consumers can view their previous appointment history, current appointment details, including: date, time, location, and status of upcoming appointments as well as other pertinent information such as prep notes, procedure descriptions and directions. Additionally, patients can schedule or request appointments and interact with the hospital to communicate their appointment preferences, questions or concerns. Consumers are able to complete online, forms required during the pre-registration process, print them out prior to their arrival and bring them to their appointment, which results in a decreased wait time and an increase in patient satisfaction. Any appointment scheduled within the Consumer Portal can be affiliated with an automated appointment reminder (sent via telephone, pager or email.)

According to John Holton, CEO, SCI Solutions, "The eHealthcare Leadership Awards validate that SCI's Consumer Portal is an innovative, e-health resource that helps hospitals and physician's offices reduce costs and boost productivity." He added, "Our hospital customers view the Consumer Portal as a demonstration of their commitment to patient satisfaction. Empowering patients to make healthcare appointments is a fundamental business decision that enhances the healthcare organization's value while improving the hospital's market share.
