CareTech Signs Three-Year Agreement to Provide Web Services to INTEGRIS Health’s 13 Hospitals

CareTech to Help Boost Patient and Board Engagement with its CareWorks CMS™ Content Manager and BoardNetTM Communications Application

TROY, Mich. – August 11, 2009 – CareTech Solutions, Inc. (www.caretechsolutions.com), an information technology (IT) and Web products and services provider for hospitals and health systems nationwide, announced today it has signed a three-year agreement to provide Web services to INTEGRIS Health (www.integris-health.com), based in Oklahoma.

CareTech Solutions will be implementing its CareWorks CMS™ content management system to support INTEGRIS Health’s 13 hospitals, led in the Oklahoma City area by INTEGRIS Baptist Medical Center and INTEGRIS Southwest Medical Center.

“INTEGRIS Health selected CareTech Solutions after an exhaustive year-long search for a comprehensive content management system,” said Todd Stogner, Web Team Lead for INTEGRIS Health. “We were looking for a solution that would enhance the delivery of information and provide comprehensive functionality and interactivity for our customers. I am confident we found exactly that in CareTech’s CareWorks CMS.”

CareTech will utilize its CareWorks CMSTM product – a module-based engine for building full-featured hospital websites – to create customizable, engaging and patient friendly websites for INTEGRIS Health. Once complete, functionality on INTEGRIS Health’s public-facing websites will include a physician finder, a newsletter engine, online giving and donations and class-registration interfaces, e-greeting cards and more.

CareTech will implement its BoardNetTM application to support INTEGRIS Health’s board of directors. BoardNetTM is a secure, permission-based Web communications portal providing board members secure, Internet-based access to information supporting effective decision making, including board meeting minutes, financial statements and more.

“A hospital’s website has increasingly become the first stop for consumers searching for the answers they need about their own healthcare and healthcare providers, making the need for interactivity critical in creating an engaging online experience for consumers,” said Chris Catallo, director, Web products and services, CareTech Solutions. “We’re delighted to help INTEGRIS Health use Web technology to provide the interactivity consumers expect in an increasingly competitive environment.”
