Medical Web Experts is proud to announce that Health Leaders Media, a leading source of information for healthcare executives and professionals, recognized the Southern Ohio Medical Center as having one of the top hospital websites in the country.
Last year, SOMC received an Acknowledgement of Excellence in Hospital Website Transparency from The Leapfrog Group and URAC as part of their Excellence in Hospital Website Transparency Program. The program identifies “outstanding hospital websites that promote transparency of quality measures in a manner that is useful and user-friendly for consumers.”
Designed by Medical Web Experts, SOMC’s website is one of only seventeen hospital websites in the country to have received this important distinction since the program’s creation. This is significant considering that there are more than 5,000 registered hospitals in the United States.
According to Health Leaders Media, the purpose of the Hospital Website Transparency Awards is to “applaud those hospitals that have begun to use their sites for real information and education rather than disingenuous hype.”
The Acknowledgement of Excellence in Hospital Website Transparency is a testament to SOMC’s goals of achieving and sustaining exceptional results in safety, quality of care, service, relationships, and financial performance. It is also a testament to MWE’s dedication to developing functional, user-friendly website designs for hospitals and healthcare organizations.
Some of the key design elements that MWE incorporated in SOMC’s website include:
- Easy-to-navigate layout
- Website content is available in different languages
- Ability to adjust font size
- Ability to print content
- “About Us” section containing information about the facility, staff and services
