DETROIT — The Greater Detroit Area Health Council has redesigned its main Web site, GDAHC.org, and its consumer-facing Web site, www.myCareCompare.org, to better communicate information to stakeholders.
GDAHC’s mission is to improve the health and wellbeing of people living in southeast Michigan by solving health problems through multi-sector collaboration. In support of this mission, the redesigned sites offer health care providers, employers, health plans and consumers easier navigation and more features that improve the ability for stakeholders to work together to improve health care in the region.
Funded by a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the two sites retain their unique brands while sharing design elements that support a single vision and help visitors explore and understand how they can improve health care in the region by becoming involved in the Greater Detroit Area Health Council. Media Genesis, a Metro Detroit digital media firm, provided web design and development services for both sites.
The redesigned GDAHC.org allows visitors to sign up to become members, sponsors, register for events, and to receive the GDAHC newsletter. The features and services that have made GDAHC a leader in transforming health care in southeast Michigan continue to be accessible on the new website, including information about GDAHC events and programs.
MyCareCompare.org now gives each visitor the ability to easily search for his or her doctor to see which physician organization that doctor belongs to, as well as the power to compare the quality of care provided by local hospitals and physician organizations. The site continues to feature many resources such as information on child immunizations, getting the most out of your doctor visit, and appropriate antibiotic use.
The sites were redesigned by Media Genesis, an Internet services firm based in Troy. Media Genesis serves more than 300 companies and nonprofit organizations. An in-house team provides a wide range of services including web design, search engine optimization, social networking and design and development of e-learning systems, mobile applications, intranets and content management systems.
