Summa Health System Launches New Site with Jahia


GENEVA, SWITZERLAND and WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - Nov. 28, 2011) - Jahia, provider of Java-based open source CMS solutions, announced today that Summa Health System ( has re-launched its website using Jahia, chosen based on its interoperability with a wide range of content repositories, making Jahia the de facto "online digital hub" for Summa Health's content.

Summa Health System - nationally renowned for excellence in patient care - is one of the largest integrated healthcare delivery systems in Ohio and encompasses a network of hospitals and community-based health centers. This new website, built with Jahia's Ohio-based Gold Partner Avantia, consolidates all of their services including physician directory, online bill pay, appointments scheduling, patient services, and their new Online Health Chat program.

"We searched for an easy to implement CMS that offers more than just Content Management," said Michael Canterbury, system director of web technology at Summa Health System. "Jahia provided us not only with Enterprise grade extended Content management but also with its United Content Hub, allowing us to benefit from our former Content Repository investments while smoothly and smartly updating within an existing infrastructure."

"Jahia allows us to meet the needs of today's clients utilizing a modern front end while integrating legacy content sources," said Brian Jimerson, Avantia CTO.

To further utilize Jahia's services, Summa Health System plans to develop additional sites in order to connect their internal content repositories (Microsoft SharePoint and Oracle UCM) leveraging the Jahia United Content Hub. This online tool will federate all of Summa Health System's content within one simple user interface. Summa Health System also plans to develop its own Content-Centric Applications on Jahia 6.5 Composite Content Patform in the near future.
