Is Your Website Mobile-Friendly?

In 2014, the number of mobile Internet users surpassed the number of desktop users. Unfortunately, many hospital websites have not been designed for optimal viewing on mobile devices. This often creates a frustrating experience for the viewer and serious consequences for the website’s effectiveness. According to recent studies, when someone has a negative experience looking at your website on a mobile device, there’s a 61 percent chance they will leave.

So what’s the answer? It’s called responsive web design: coding your website so it can adapt its display to all screen sizes for optimal viewing. For example, a computer screen might show your website having multiple columns, but on a mobile phone, the information is provided in a single column. The entire site become much more accessible and easy to view and navigate for mobile device users.

There’s another benefit to having a website that’s responsive. When mobile devices use Google, mobile-friendly websites receive a higher ranking and websites that are not mobile-friendly are penalized. So it’s critical to have a responsive website if you want better search engine results that highlight your hospital.
