Commonspot CMS of Choice for Major Healthcare Organizations

PaperThin, Inc., a leading Web content management solution provider, today announced that major Healthcare organizations are increasingly selecting CommonSpot to power their Web initiatives. Some of CommonSpot's Healthcare customers include leading organizations such as Baptist Healthcare, Loyola Medicine, Oregon Health & Science University, Riverside Health, Sharp Healthcare, and St. Luke's Episcopal Health System; as well as PaperThin's newest customer Meridian Health.

CommonSpot offers healthcare organizations (i.e. hospitals, pharmaceutical companies, medical device manufacturers, etc.) flexible, scalable, and easy-to-use content management capabilities. Ideal for corporate intranets, Internets, physician portals and extranets, CommonSpot streamlines communications with doctors, administrators, staff, patients, suppliers, laboratories, agencies and other key constituents. CommonSpot's inherent ease-of-use enables non-technical users to be self-sufficient and productive. It also empowers IT and site administrators with the flexibility needed to adapt the system to meet their complex and changing needs, and easily integrate with 3rd party content and software providers such as health content libraries and patient management systems. CommonSpot's unequalled taxonomy is well suited for intranets with large amounts of data, or for organizations with the need to meet documenting and training regulatory requirements.

"We chose CommonSpot for its flexibility and ease of use. CommonSpot offers us the flexibility needed to develop custom applications and pages on both our public our Intranet. Healthcare demands rapid development to meet the changing needs of our organization and the market. CommonSpot delivers and integrates with our Web systems. And with hundreds of content contributors, we needed something that everyone would understand right out of the box. Users have been up and running with brief video tutorials and little coaching. The system just makes sense for our end users and for our development team," said Lawrence Turner, manager of Web development for Sharp.

Chris Ferris of St. Luke's Episcopal Health System added, "St. Luke's had thousands of pages of content to migrate as a part of a Web initiative to unite seven sites (including websites and intranets) onto CommonSpot, yet our Web group was very understaffed. CommonSpot was so easy to use that we were able to hire untrained volunteers to migrate all of our content which saved the organization both time and money."

"What makes PaperThin successful with healthcare organizations is more than just the flexibility, and breadth and depth of CommonSpot--it's also our healthcare expertise and unwavering dedication to each customer's ultimate success," said Bob Cellucci, PaperThin senior vice president of sales and marketing.
