- Improved usability and user experience
ufhealth.org allows us to consolidate patient-centric information into an interconnected web site that improves usability and user experience while at the same time increasing the accuracy and usefulness of content.
- Increase organic visitor traffic from search engines
By employing cutting edge search engine optimization techniques and a new content strategy, we can improve the amount of organic traffic we attract via search engines. This provides more opportunities for our visitors to discover the information they are searching for.
- Increase appointment requests and requests for information
By making it easier to request an appointment from multiple paths, we have increased the total number of appointment requests originating from the website
A Homepage Designed for Patients
Right from the front page a patient can request an appointment, search for a doctor or log into MyUFHealth. A robist mega menu provides additional items under Patient Care: Locations and Directions, Find a Doctor, Dental Care, and more. Patients can also find information on how to plan for your visit, ways to contact us and other valuable information.
Search Quick Results (Autocomplete)
When you know what you want, you want it immediately. Our dedicated, autocomplete search function is there to deliver. Simply begin typing in the search box, and we’ll serve up a list of titles that best match what your search term.
In the Patient Care mega-menu, you’ll find a dedicated search box for our health encyclopedia and an option to browse an alphabetical listing of titles. Once you’ve reached your destination page, you not only have access to clinical content, but you can also find locations, providers, and even research studies and clinical trials related to the topic.
Our Find a Doctor tool enables you to quickly find the right University of Florida health provider for you. You can search for providers by specialty, keyword or last name. You can also filter your results by gender, locations, or even by languages spoken. Seeking a pediatric echocardiologist who speaks Spanish? Done. An ear, nose and throat specialist at Hampton Oaks? Easy. We make it simple to find someone who can help you because you’re important to us.
Need help finding a clinic or hospital location? How about a map showing you how to get there from your home? You’ll find that and more in our Locations Directory. Search for clinics by name or keyword. Find addresses and phone numbers, as well as interactive maps that will guide you to our doorstep.
Because UF&Shands is a premier academic health center, you have access to many clinical trials and other research studies. When you hover over our research tab, you’ll see a search bar on the left that allows you to access clinical trials and research studies by keyword and other criteria. You can also find research studies and clinical trials linked to health topics in our health encyclopedia.
