Healthwise Content Integration

Made a migration from one content management system to a better one in less than 8 weeks

Challenge

Our client identified a need to
provide their community and
members with indexed, actionoriented web content, tools and
resources for both self- care and
condition self-management.

After a detailed vendor assessment,
Healthwise was selected as the
vendor of choice. Healthwise is
widely considered to be the gold
standard in health content. The
client’s contract with the Mayo Clinic
was ending and new vendor content
needed to be integrated into the site
by the end of the contract.

Solution

We developed a sophisticated
presentation layer for XML to HTML
content conversion with an
emphasis on processing speed.

Vicert implemented the process for
Healthwise data collection, then
accommodated this content with
the existing Blue Shield data
structure and finally applied the
appropriate presentation layer to
allow content browsing.

members, prospects and site visitors the

management process.
• The reading, transformation and storage
of the complete set of Healthwise content
(around 14,000 files) takes less than 30
