CMS & DXP Platforms Used by the Top Ranked Health Systems

CMS & DXP Platforms Used by the Top Ranked Health Systems

Acquia, Sitecore, and Adobe Lead the Way

Leading hospitals and health system have been moving to Drupal/Acquia and Sitecore over the last decade. Adobe has typically been out of reach from a cost perspective for most health systems. However, Adobe has expanded its healthcare footprint in recent years. Optimizely is another top rated digital experience platform (DXP) that is not yet represented on this list. We expect that will change as Optimizely and their partners focus on extending further into healthcare.

Healthcare's Shift to Leading CMS Platforms

A decade ago, this list would have included multiple proprietary healthcare-specific CMS platforms supported by individual vendors. Healthcare digital marketing and IT teams now recognize the advantages of leveraging industry leading CMS and DXP platforms supported by wide partner networks.
