CenterWatch Honored a Fifth Consecutive Year for Best Healthcare Content
Boston, Mass.—November 10, 2009—CenterWatch, a leading provider of clinical trials information, received its fifth consecutive eHealthcare Leadership Award and seventh overall at the 10th Annual Healthcare Internet Conference held in Las Vegas last week. Presented by eHealthcare Strategy and Trends, a leading Internet publication, CenterWatch was awarded silver for Best Health/Healthcare Content.
With more than 1,100 entries received from both large and small companies in 17 classifications, this annual award recognizes the best web sites dedicated to healthcare and highlights the Internet's role in achieving business objectives. For CenterWatch, it is a validation of a recent site re-design, launched in January of this year with the goal of enhancing navigation and creating a more dynamic and interactive site for clinical research professionals and patients.
"It is wonderful to be honored and recognized for the work CenterWatch has put into its web site," says Jeff Levitz, senior vice president and general manager of CenterWatch. "In order to compete in a technology-driven business climate, it is absolutely imperative to have an intuitive, well-organized, and robust site. It is an evolutionary process, but we are well on our way to achieving our goals."

We provide proprietary data and information about clinical trials through a variety of newsletters, books, databases, and information services used by pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, CROs, SMOs, and investigative sites involved in the management and conduct of clinical trials.
