Cedar Rapids, IA — March 13, 2014 — Geonetric, an online solutions provider for the healthcare industry, today launched a new responsive website for Olmsted Medical Center (OMC), southeastern Minnesota’s community healthcare provider. The new website delivers on OMC’s brand promise of exceptional, personal care and showcases the organization’s strong connection to the community.

“As the healthcare sector evolves, patients increasingly are expecting online services that deliver user experiences similar to those already provided by the travel, banking, and hospitality industries,” said Jeremy Salucka, OMC’s communication and Web services coordinator. “Our new site offers a much more intuitive and interactive experience for anyone looking to apply for an OMC job, find a location, register for a class, or learn about an OMC clinician.”

A comprehensive events calendar, estimated wait–time indicators, and a host of other interactive health tools join existing transactional services like the MyOMC patient portal and online bill pay.

OMC’s new website is built on Geonetric's VitalSite® content management system (CMS) and uses responsive design, which means the website automatically rearranges content based on the screen size of the site user’s browsing device.

“Smartphone and tablet computing are rapidly replacing traditional desktop computers as people’s go–to devices,” says Sue Schuett, chief information officer at OMC. “And increased patient involvement with their medical records, providers, and treatments/services is the most common theme in recent healthcare legislation. Moving to the VitalSite® CMS and new design/layout gives OMC more tools to engage patients in their own healthcare.”

Geonetric and OMC also unveiled a new microsite for the OMC Regional Foundation, which also features a responsive, streamlined design.
