MARGATE, Florida--iHealthSpot, Inc. has announced the introduction of MD Presence.

MD Presence is a website system that facilitates the use of the Internet for physicians and dentists interested in achieving better patient care, comprehensive patient education, and more efficient operation of their medical practices.

A leader in marketing technology for the medical industry, iHealthSpot, Inc. has completed the launch of a cutting-edge website and management system exclusively for physicians and dentists focused on enabling medical practices to market themselves with a full-featured website that includes everything from easy updating to patient education.

"With technology playing a much larger role in practice management and patients using the Internet in record numbers to search for health information online, a cost-effective, highly flexible, and easy to update and maintain website is essential for doctors who want to stay ahead of the curve", said Mary Hall, CEO of iHealthSpot.

"MD Presence allows busy medical practitioners to maintain a powerful but inexpensive web presence that will attract new patients and increase the loyalty of existing ones". Now physicians and dentists can take advantage of our streamlined process which delivers them a full featured website with the online technology to market their practice, communicate with their patients, streamline the most common patient interaction and generally take advantage of today's dynamic online world with little effort or involvement."

The MD Presence solution is complete and delivers a physician a full featured website in only ten days which includes many pages of content including information about the practice, physician bio's, services provided, conditions treated, office hours, location with map, contact information, photos of the staff and practice, insurance accepted, hospital affiliations and more.

The system includes a choice of styles from 40 different design templates which can be customized with the doctor's logos, colors, images and fonts as desired. As a result, each MD Presence website delivered is uniquely personalized.

An integral part of the MD Presence website is hundreds of pages of written and illustrated medical and dental content by specialty, conceived, created, written and edited by a team of specialist doctors and dentists specifically for easy patient reference and thorough patient understanding. Each website built by iHealthSpot comes with this content imbedded into it as part of that doctor's website's look and feel.

"iHealthSpot has developed exceptional patient education content for orthopedics, family practice, internal medicine, cosmetic surgery, dermatology, physical therapy, rehabilitation, gastroenterology and dentistry, with more topics being added daily," said Dr. Steve Meadows, board certified orthopedic surgeon and CMO for iHealthSpot.

"Each website is fed fresh, relevant content on a regular basis, including monthly peer-reviewed articles featuring topics and advancements related to the doctor's specialty. This allows physician's to send patients to their own reliable source for information and helps patients prepare for procedures or answer questions they may have thought of after they leave the office."

To improve practice operations, MD Presence builds into the doctor's website the ability to use his or her existing pre-registration forms in order to be printed and filled out by the patient prior to a visit, built in systems for secure appointment requests and prescription requests or to create new forms within the MD Presence system which can be filled out and submitted securely online.

Once a website is purchased and delivered, iHealthSpot supports and maintains the website through an affordable monthly maintenance plan.

For a single low monthly fee, doctors receive hosting of their website with their own web address, email accounts, search engine optimization and submission, nightly back-ups, traffic reports, licensing of the patient education library and use of the powerful MD Presence proprietary web based editor, ezNetPublish, which allows any non-technical staff member within the practice to update the content and graphics on their website without having to call on programmers or technical specialists.

Because of the ezNetPublish advantage, anyone can make changes to the doctor's public website that once required expensive and time-consuming efforts by highly skilled programmers.
