In an effort to improve the patient accessibility, search engine optimization and functionality of HCAPS and hospital websites, HCA Web Services has recently created the Healthcare Unified Template (HUT) for all hospital and physician practice websites and designed a new process for building your practice’s website.
About HCAPS’ New Website Template:
The basic design and structure of the template is the result of the web team’s detailed research and analysis on creating a structure that would perform well in search results, but could also be easily customized to fit entity branding standards and additional requests. The Healthcare Unified Template is also optimized for mobile devices, improving patient access to make an appointment or locate our clinics and hospitals.
Requesting a New Website
The web team will be organizing all website builds and HUT redesigns into 6-week Web Project Sprints, or rounds. Some divisions have elected to implement a systematic rollout schedule to move their websites to the new template. If you are interested in developing a rollout schedule with your division, please notify Amanda Short.
To be selected to participate in an upcoming sprint:
- Submit a Web Development Request
- Start working on completing the Online Content Gathering Form. To ensure a site is ready to build at the start of the sprint, all content must be submitted through the online form before the sprint begins.
- You will be notified when you have been selected to participate in an upcoming sprint.
Requirements from the Practice
Each 6-week sprint requires a time commitment of 4-5 hours, which includes a 2-hour time commitment for submitting all content. Once the sprint begins, the primary responsibilities will be providing insight on the branding and imagery, reviewing the site and approving the site for launch.
Please contact Amanda Short with any questions on transitioning your website to this new template or participating in an upcoming Web Project Sprint.
