Web Health Award given to Indianapolis health insurance company MDwise

INDIANAPOLIS – MDwise has been selected a leader in health care resources by the Web Health Awards. Each year, the Web Health Awards recognize the best in digital health resources nationwide, and this year MDwise, and design partner Bitwise, earned an Award of Merit distinction in the Website category for a consumer audience.

“We’re honored to be recognized by this prestigious program for our website redesign,” said Charlotte MacBeth, chief executive officer of MDwise. “Our new site reflects our commitment to our members as every change made was directly based on member feedback gathered in usability studies. We’re excited to offer this educational resource to our current members as well as consumers looking to purchase health insurance in the Marketplace.”

Entries for the Web Health Awards are judged by a panel of health technology professionals, based on content, format, success in reaching the targeted health audience and overall quality. The Web Health Awards program is organized by the Health Information Resource Center, a 20-year old clearinghouse for professionals who work in consumer health fields.

The redesigned MDwise site offers a number of new benefits for users. The most notable is the responsive site design which allows members to more easily view the website on their smart phone or mobile device. And improved organization means that content members access most often is now easy to locate and navigate. All of these changes provide the end-user with a more cohesive and enjoyable experience. In fact, mobile usage of the site has increased drastically since launch, indicative of the improved design and functionality.
