Consumer Health Information Corporation has received one of the nation's top awards for patient education programs. The award was granted by the National Health Information Awards program sponsored by the National Wellness Institute, American Custom Publishing Corporation, and Mosby.

Selected from more than 600 entries by a national panel of health information experts, Consumer Health Information Corporation won the following award:

Gold Award: Patient Education Information Category

The second edition of "A Path To Healthy Living," produced for The Upjohn Company, is a Disease Management Education Program for people with Type II diabetes. This comprehensive patient information home guide contains information that every patient needs to know about the disease including diet, exercise, lifestyle changes, medication management and traveling tips.

In order to help motivate patients to modify their daily lifestyles and manage their treatments more effectively, several patient compliance tools are included in the program. The patient information booklet was peer-reviewed by physicians, pharmacists, and certified diabetes educators. It was also reviewed by the American Diabetes Association, the American Association of Diabetes Educators and the National Diabetes Information Clearinghouse.

This is the second year in a row that Consumer Health Information Corporation was recognized in this national contest. Previously, the company was awarded both the Silver Award (Patient Information Category) and the Bronze Award (Consumer Information Category).

"We are honored to be recognized once again by the awards committee," said Dr. Dorothy L. Smith, President of Consumer Health Information Corporation. "Equally as gratifying is the response we have received from patients and health professionals who have reported that the program has improved patient compliance and helped patients better manage their disease."
