CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwire - Sep 26, 2012) - Medullan, Inc. (www.medullan.com), the brains behind health technology innovation, announced that the company and its client, The Medicare NewsGroup, in collaboration with the Calfo Design Group, won the News Standard of Excellence 2012 WebAward. The award was presented to the companies for Outstanding Achievement in Web Development for The Medicare NewsGroup website.
The Medicare NewsGroup (www.medicarenewsgroup.com) site is designed to equip journalists with the resources they need to cover Medicare effectively and thoroughly. The site is optimized for reporters, writers, bloggers and editors who produce news and commentary on Medicare. The site aims to be a digital encyclopedia of Medicare that organizes past, current and future information; news; events; research; and legislation relating to the topic.
"This site is truly one of a kind and we are thrilled that the Web Marketing Association recognized the efforts of everyone who worked so hard to make this site a reality. With so much confusion and misinformation surrounding the Medicare program, The Medicare NewsGroup wanted a place journalists could turn to for solid resources to support their reporting on the program's nuances," said Ahmed Albaiti, CEO of Medullan. "It was very exciting to work with the team 'from napkin to beta' -- culminating in a unique resource for journalists trying to follow a very complex and fluid topic. There were a lot of puzzle pieces that we had to fit together in a very short amount of time. It was an extremely collaborative project and the Medullan team really shines under those circumstances. We're proud of the end result and the opportunity to be a part of the delivery of this product."
"We were impressed with Medullan's developers and designers that combined commercial off-the-shelf software with sophisticated feature customizations uniquely suited to empower the workflow and needs of our target users," said Judi Israel Rosen, Publisher of The Medicare NewsGroup. "Launched in April 2012, the site has received an impressive number of visitors. MNG offers original news and a compendium of information from hundreds of outlets. Pulling all of that content together in one place and keeping it up to date is no easy task. To ensure the best possible user experience, and a well-architected site, we asked Medullan to collaborate with a broad range of people, in particular Jason Calfo and the Calfo Design Group, and were pleased with the results."
