"The healthcare industry is very competitive when it comes to Web development and companies can benefit from the independent evaluation of their online efforts," said William Rice , President of the Web Marketing Association. "Healthcare web sites are typically strong in terms of content and copywriting due to their role of helping the organization become a trusted medical source. In past years, judges have also scored these sites well in ease of use, and design; however, they tend to lag in innovation and use of technology."

Websites are judged on seven criteria including design, innovation, content, technology, interactivity, copy writing and ease of use. All healthcare entrants benefit from receiving valuable feedback in terms of their specific criteria scores compared against the average scores for their industry.

Each year, the Web Marketing Association names the Best of Industry for the various health care categories based on the score they receive from the WebAward judges.
