Altru Launches One of First Responsive Websites in Health Care
Altru Health System, Grand Forks, ND – With the help of Geonetric, a leading provider of online solutions to the health care industry, Altru Health System recently launched a revitalized website, altru.org, using responsive design principles to offer users an optimal mobile experience. With cutting-edge technology and the latest in design techniques, altru.org now allows the growing mobile market to access the entire site on an array of devices and screen sizes, instead of a limited set of content and functionality.
“We chose to develop a responsive site due to the growing number of mobile users accessing our website. That mobile market can’t be ignored,” says Jennifer Neis, website coordinator for Altru Health System. “Users want to be able to access deeper content than just phone numbers, maps and directions. Responsive design is the answer.”
Altru and Geonetric have a long-standing relationship. Together, the two organizations achieve innovative work. Eric Engelmann, president and CEO of Geonetric, notes “Responsive design allows organizations to build one site that can be everything to everybody. We are proud to work with forward-thinking health care organizations like Altru Health System that are truly approaching mobile strategically.”
