Meeting Patients Where They Are
Communication devices and consumer expectations have changed rapidly over the past five years. For the first time, a majority of Americans of all age groups own smartphones. The senior citizen demographic is no longer tied to desktop computers, either. Smartphones are now owned and used by seven out of 10 Americans overall (70%). And low-income individuals widely choose mobile over other mediums, due to mobile's affordability as an all-in-one-device.

Making Sense of Web and Mobile
Optimized and Responsive Sites
A mobile-optimized or responsive website is a website that can be viewed easily on any size screen. If you have a newer website and you like it, and it is performing its business function well, do not reinvent the wheel. Instead, a skilled programmer from Digital Healthcom Group can go into your current site's code and make it "responsive" for mobile devices.
If you need a brand new website, we will create one with you that is responsive. You will update your site the same as ever, in one place. The changes take effect on all layouts.
We can even make the mobile layout feature some things and not others, because people have different habits and expectations when they look for information and perform tasks on their phones.
Our techniques will help improve your site's usability, speed up page loads and can bring mobile-specific features to the forefront to increase visitor satisfaction and time spent on your website.
Do I Need a Mobile App?
A mobile application ("app") works on a specific mobile device's operating system and is downloaded to the device. Apps focus on a specific set of functions. If you are wondering if you need an app or just a responsive website, some questions to ask are:
- If I force people to take time downloading an app, are the benefits my site provides worth that extra step?
- Will people perform functions on my app that they need to do on a frequent, regular basis over time?
- Are those transactions things they spend more time on, or things that tie into their lifestyle?
Digital Healthcom Group hires different developers based on the type of project requirements our clients present to us.
We have carefully screened hundreds of people who work in the field as independent website, mobile and custom app developers.
We believe our folks are among the very best in the world at what they do—whether they are new and up-and-coming stars or seasoned vets of the industry.
Plus, we hire them because they are easy to work with and want you to succeed.
Are Apps Expensive?
Not really. But it depends on exactly how customized your creation needs to be.
You may think you need some features, or the boss wants a certain gizmo, but in actuality you might really need something in between, or entirely different.
We often counsel first-time app clients to create an app with us that can be staged over time.
It is much easier and more efficient to start with a highly functional, well-designed app, and build it up over time and through testing and evaluation of how your customers are using it, rather than guess and create an app or website that is too complicated for your customers.
