CrownPeak Simplifies Access To Health Care Information
CrownPeak announced today that Medicare.com is live utilizing CrownPeak’s award-winning content management system
Los Angeles, CA (November 1, 2008) —
CrownPeak, the company defining the future of content management, today announced that Medicare.com is live utilizing CrownPeak’s award-winning content management system. Medicare.com, privately owned and operated by Medx Publishing Inc., is the premier destination for information on navigating the complex maze of the Medicare system. Users can access basic coverage information and utilize tools for making informed decisions about their Medicare healthcare options, benefits and needs.
In 2010, 77 million “baby boomers” will retire and be eligible for Medicare. The huge growth in Medicare-qualified individuals will put a strain on existing resources. Medicare.com’s goal is to empower the individual by providing easy access to the relevant data that allows their users to make better decisions about their health. The CrownPeak content management system has made this possible by giving Medicare.com the ability to quickly create, edit, manage and publish content in an easy fashion.
Medicare.com provides information on Medicare coverage basic facts, Part D drug plans, drug coverage, services and procedures, equipment and supplies as well as Medigap insurance. Informational videos are available on topics such as health insurance basics or specific diseases and the Symptom Checker provides an initial checklist for common symptoms on different parts of the body.
The web site benefits both consumers of the health care system as well as health care providers. Users who will find Medicare.com useful include caregivers of parents and loved ones searching for ways to qualify for certain coverage. Providers including health care professionals such as nurses, physicians, hospitals and medical businesses will also benefit from the wealth of information at their fingertips.
One of the main marketing requirements for the site is to be able to easily optimize it for search engines to drive organic traffic, and using the CrownPeak content management system they are able to easily create search friendly URLs, input the necessary meta-data into their assets as well as change their keyword densities.
“The sheer amount of information on the Medicare system is very overwhelming to the average person,” says Jim Howard, chief executive officer for CrownPeak. “CrownPeak content management system excels in providing the tools which help companies manage large amounts of content. We’re proud to be part of an effort that can directly impact the well-being of millions of individuals.”
CrownPeak built the site mindful of their client’s advertising revenue generation model. The CrownPeak content management system gives Medicare.com the ability to tailor a mix of advertising including display ads, contextual ads and third party affiliate advertising. The goal is to serve highly targeted ads with strict relevancy to only content viewers are interested in, providing them with valuable vendor information to further their health care needs.
“CrownPeak went above and beyond the call of duty,” says Bill Kimberlin, chief executive officer of Medx Publishing. “Beyond implementing a highly flexible and intuitive content management solution, they proactively provided input on other areas such as revenue generation and affiliate partnerships. Their passion was evident from the outset. CrownPeak was the clear choice for us, and we couldn’t be happier with the result.”
CrownPeak looks forward to working together with Medicare.com as they continue releasing new information and features with an eye on constantly growing their online presence. Examples include integrating the latest health care news in the near future by allowing experts to contribute original articles on various topics.
