What makes great healthcare web design

Healthcare websites are information rich and content-driven. Their features can vary depending on the particular needs and processes of your organization. Best practice design for healthcare websites includes:
  • Clear and intuitive navigation  
  • User-focused experience (UX)  
  • Content-focused layouts
  • Minimal use of distracting graphics
  • Subtle micro interactions for wayfinding  
  • Fully responsive to all device sizes
  • Accessible design
Healthcare and medical websites provide incredible value to the people who use them. Their features can vary depending on the particular needs and processes of your organization. Here is a list of some of the many options we suggest for the best healthcare websites:
  • Robust and customizable search with tagging and categories  
  • Micro-sites for distinct departments or promotions  
  • Job postings and applications with workflow  
  • Secure online registration forms for confidential information gathering  
  • Resource library to securely manage all your documents, images and multimedia files in one place  
  • Email marketing with newsletter subscriber groups, create and distribute  
  • News, blogs and forums modules with create, edit and archive  
  • Extranets/intranets for community and member protected content ideal for staff, patients and committees   
  • E-commerce for the ability to process payments for donations or events  
  • Custom forms and surveys with the ability to create your own forms, polls and surveys with a drag and drop capability
  • Online marketing to deliver and optimize real-time, customer-centric marketing across multiple channels  
  • Privacy compliance to HIPPA/PHIPA standards
  • Accessible code and design to WCAG A, AA, AAA compliance
  • Future proof and scalable framework built with best-in-class back-end


We understand that accessibility is a crucial part of your healthcare website and prioritize it from the start of the project. Beginning at the design phase, we analyze the design criteria with a third-party Adobe XD plugin called Stark. This plugin checks colour contrast on text and backgrounds to produce a compliance rating.

We also draw on our experience building websites that are AODA (Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act) compliant when scoping out the functional aspects of a website. This allows us to develop practical solutions that will postilion your website well within the required standard.  
After the design phase is complete, we test for accessibility compliance early and often – before the Alpha deliverable (HTML/CSS prototype pages) and during the Beta deliverable (fully functional website). We use the best industry third-party software tools to scan for accessibility that checks the entire website with a complete report we then share with you.
