5/1/2010 - MedForward nows offers secure online forms

MedForward is proud to release MedForward Forms.

When a patient steps into your office and has not yet completed their form, it causes delays in the schedule, which translate into additional headaches for the staff, less happy patients, and lost revenue.

While you can place your forms on your website in PDF format, patients must take the initiative to print them out, fill them out, and remember to bring them in prior to their visit.  Most patients forget or do not take those extra steps.

Now the entire process can be completed electronically.  In a secure, HIPAA compliant fashion, patients can submit their medical history, registration forms, and more. Any existing form can be converted into an electronic form. We build the forms for you based on your current forms.  Or, you can set-it-up yourself using our easy to use software, free.

3/19/2010 - Apple mobile platform compatibility packages available.

With the growing popularity of mobile devices for web browsing, more patients will be researching your practice from their mobile device, which includes the iPhone, iPad, or iPod.  Some of these devices do not have the ability to load flash animations or display all of the aspects of a website. MedForward can make your website compatible with these devices.  Graphics, streaming video, and content will display correctly on mobile devices. After analyzing website statistics, we have seen an exponential growth in mobile device usage.  Over the past year, it has grown from less than 0.5% of traffic to 3% for medical websites.  We expect to see this number increase further in the near future.  Please contact us if you are interested in learning more about how to make your website compatible with mobile devices.

2/10/2010 - New search engine optimization strategies implemented.

MedForward has implemented a new strategy for search engine optimization.  This technique complies with Google's recommendations.  On a technical level, the HTML code is implemented using the least possible number of characters for faster loading time.  We make sure that your server loads web pages quickly.  In addition, we optimize the meta tags and HTML code for every item on the page to ensure accurate communication of information on the page.  One of our consultants will read through your content and make recommendations for content updates that will help your site appear for the marketing search terms relevant to the services your practice offers.  This technique also includes a set of regular content updates to ensure fresh information for search engines, an XML sitemap for Google, back-link optimization, and other state-of-the-art methods to maximize search ranking.  Our SEO techniques do not include any methods that carry the risk of penalties from search engines.
