Healthcare is often behind the times when it comes to technology. Medical web design and digital marketing is no exception. In fact, many hospital and medical practices have outdated websites that do little to cater to today’s highly-connected consumers who are spending more time browsing the internet on their smartphones than on laptops or desktop computers.

What many health organizations fail to realize is that not having a mobile-friendly website is extremely bad for business. These websites not only load slowly, but they make it difficult to find useful information, such as contact information, hours of operation and services offered. If that information is not easily accessible, it takes only seconds for users to make the decision to leave.

More importantly, as of April 21st of this year, Google has started punishing websites that are not mobile friendly, while websites that are optimized for mobile now rank better in search. For healthcare professionals who have not been taking mobile seriously, this means that it’s time to start.
