MedTouch Launches Enhanced Online Presence for St. Dominic-Jackson Memorial Hospital

(Cambridge, MA) - April 3, 2008 - MedTouch, a leading provider of interactive, web-based solutions for health care organizations, today announced the launch of an enhanced online presence for St. Dominic-Jackson Memorial Hospital. The new web site includes a full redesign and implementation of ContentBridge, MedTouch’s content management system for hospitals. St. Dominic is a 571-bed not-for-profit acute care hospital located in Jackson, Mississippi.

ContentBridge provides St. Dominic with a powerful workflow process for assigning, reviewing, editing and publishing pages. The safe, affordable and all-inclusive platform also eliminates the need for St. Dominic to purchase any additional software. Highlights of ContentBridge include document, workflow and keyword management tools, site-wide search and tracking capabilities, and search engine optimization capabilities.

“Our challenge was to translate the long-term vision of St. Dominic into a user friendly web site that sets them apart from the competition,” said Paul Griffiths, CEO of MedTouch. “St. Dominic was strategic in selecting a product – ContentBridge - that ensures fast and easy delivery of important information online. We worked in close partnership with St. Dominic to provide customized solutions that would meet their specific needs.”

As a subsidiary of St. Dominic Health Services, St. Dominic is a not-for-profit acute care hospital owned and operated by the Dominican Sisters of Springfield, Illinois. St. Dominic's response to the ever-growing health care needs of the people of Mississippi has positioned St. Dominic as one of the leading not-for-profit hospitals in the Southeast.

“MedTouch was the only firm that shared our passion for using the web site to integrate and advance our strategic marketing efforts,” said Paul Arrington, Vice President of Business Development at St. Dominic Hospital. “Their unique approach, vast healthcare experience, and hands on partnering approach differentiated them and allowed us to create a cutting edge web site that provides consumers and partners with increased access to key services.”
