Henry Ford Health System, a preeminent academic health system in Southeastern Michigan, and MedTouch, a professional services firm for online strategy and technology headquartered in Boston, together announce the launch of the new Henry Ford website, henryford.com, built on Sitecore 8.1.
Design, functionality and content are interwoven in the new site to create a user-centric experience that delivers streamlined, relevant information on demand. Henryford.com includes more than 4,300 newly written and optimized pages and imagery.
Prior to the website redesign, Henry Ford and MedTouch developed a strategic roadmap to unify multiple location websites of varying size and complexity into one cohesive system-wide site. MedTouch and Henry Ford project teams collaborated to create site personas to address users’ needs and built a streamlined information architecture – the backbone of what would become the new site.
MedTouch conducted various audits including digital, content, SEO and competitive audits to inform the overall strategy and implementation planning. As templates and designs were finalized, MedTouch performed extensive usability testing to evaluate the desktop and mobile versions of the site.
The new Henry Ford site features a modern, responsive design that includes a prominent link to MyChart for easy patient account access. The user-centric site includes key modules and features, such as:
- Campaign landing pages
- Clinical Trials search functionality and access
- Events Calendar with shopping cart and registration
- Find a Doctor, which is integrated with PubMed links, maps, directions and the ability to view doctor offices by distance (near me)
- Greeting Cards
- Locations, which can be searched by name or type
- Personalized home pages for each hospital
- Show Me, which integrates relevant classes, news and blog articles all on one page
