Jan 26, 2023

In today’s world, having a website is essential, but an old website may be hurting more than helping your business. For healthcare organizations, having a website can be a powerful tool to reach potential patients and make sure current ones are informed. It can provide information about services, staff qualifications, contact details, and more. It is important to keep in mind that with the right design and accessibility features, your website can become the go-to resource for those seeking healthcare information or services. Your website should also reflect that in its design, 50% of consumers believe that website design is crucial to a business’s overall brand. As an expert in your field, it is important to continue learning and growing with your practice and your website should grow with you to match the technology of today.

Bring Your Story to Life

Updating a website for your healthcare practice offers many benefits. A website allows you to control the story you want to share and the messaging around your practice with potential patients or referrals.

Our website recently got a refresh to bring our mission to the forefront of our design and better showcase our services. No matter the size of your team, you can create an online presence that tells your story while providing key information such as credentials, contact info, and answers to common questions. Customers are able to access this information at any hour, which can be beneficial if they have questions that don't require an immediate response from someone on staff.

Design & Accessibility Features  

When creating your website, it's important to make sure it's both desktop and mobile-friendly. This will ensure users have the same quality experience no matter which device they're using when visiting your site. Additionally, creating clear navigation will help guide visitors through your content quickly and easily. With an updated design the back end can be SEO-rich to improve your search results. You should also consider incorporating accessibility features into your design to enhance usability for anyone who may have difficulty reading or navigating standard web pages due to physical or cognitive disabilities. This could include adjustable font sizes and colors as well as alternative text descriptions on images so individuals using screen readers will still be able to understand the content on each page.

Credibility is Key
