Organizations located in the heart of the Silicon Valley are often early adopters of the innovative technologies that surround them. El Camino Hospital, known as the Hospital of Silicon Valley, mirrors the tech-savvy community it serves by offering state-of-the-art technologies and highly skilled staff dedicated to the well-being of local residents.
The hospital has always strived to maintain a close connection with the surrounding community. The El Camino Hospital Health Beat app, created with Digital Publishing Suite (DPS), helps fulfill that mission by providing the latest information on medical advances, wellness advice and hospital services.
The app was produced with the DPS platform and created by Adobe partner Diablo Custom Publishing (DCP). The DPS platform was chosen because it provided the DCP designers with the ability to leverage existing workflows and assets. Content created for Health Beat’s print edition has been infused with interactivity, like slide shows and helpful videos, to keep readers engaged and informed.
“Adobe DPS enables the ability to create an engaging Health Beat tablet publication that fits our needs and budget,” says Chris Ernst, marketing and corporate communications at El Camino Hospital. “Plus, we can include more content in the app than what fits in the print version. So it’s not just a repurposing of the same content; it’s an enhancement of the print edition.”
In addition to providing readers with healthy living tips, the Health Beat app is positioned to be a key tool for El Camino Hospital’s continued outreach to its community. The interactive content found in the app will be promoted across the hospital’s social channels and website.
