The Virtual Wellness Community, a social networking and support Website for people affected by cancer developed in partnership with The Wellness Community, recently received the Silver Award in the 2007 eHealthcare Leadership Awards. The Awards recognize the very best websites of health care providers, health plans, health care associations, online health companies, pharmaceutical/medical equipment firms, suppliers, other health care organizations, and business improvement initiatives. The eHealth Leadership Awards program was developed and first presented eight years ago by eHealthcare Strategies and Trends; a leading internet resource published by Health Care Communications. The awards aim to highlight the internet’s role in achieving an organization’s business objectives and recognize the hard work that has gone into creating outstanding health websites.
Re-launched in June 2007, The Virtual Wellness Community (www.thewellnesscommunity.org) was selected as a Silver Award winner in the Consumer Disease-Focused Site: Best Overall Internet Sites. DLC Solutions has been TWC’s Web technology partner for the Virtual Wellness Community since 2001. Winners were recognized during a special presentation at the Eleventh Annual Healthcare Internet Conference held November 4 – 6, 2007 in Las Vegas.
