THOROFARE, N.J. — Healio.com, a website for specialty physicians published by SLACK Incorporated, has received a Grand Award in the 25th Annual Awards for Publication Excellence (APEX) competition in the “Websites” category.
Grand Awards honor outstanding publication work by professional communicators in 12 major categories. This year only 100 Grand Awards were presented from 2,400 entries.
Launched in 2012, Healio.com provides specialty physicians with daily news, videos, online education, meeting coverage and more.
“A massive site — packed with useful, well-researched and well-written information — but very well organized, with clear navigation,” said the 2013 APEX competition judge commendation of Healio.com. “The site offers all-encompassing resources that are carefully targeted to its audience of health care professionals. Numerous interactive features — and the ability to customize the site to provide tailored news and data for your specific interests — are added pluses.”
A judging panel comprised of expert writers and editors determined recipients of the awards, which are distributed based on graphic design excellence, editorial content and overall communications superiority.
“We are honored to be the recipient of such a prestigious APEX award,” Joan-Marie Stiglich, ELS, Senior Vice President of SLACK Incorporated, said. “This award not only recognizes the concept and creation of Healio, but also the great work our folks do every day in providing news, education and journal articles to our physician and health care professional audience.”
