After closing their doors, EORH was reopening them to the public and needed a complete website build. And so, John Johnson, Chief Executive Officer, turned to Uplancer to relaunch the hospital’s online platform to help restore client convenience and save precious time.
The Challenge: Rebuilding a Website That Restores Convenience

To keep up with their patient needs, EORH required a marketing website that would not only integrate with a number of patient services, such as electronic medical records and customer relation management systems, but also work without interruptions.
- Marketing challenge: EORH’s marketing team needed a solution that offered ease of use when updating the marketing marketing site. This solution needed to allow enough flexibility to make such updates while blocking updates on certain pages.
- Growing IT needs: IT had their hands full; among other things, they were busy setting up technologies around patient care, such as personal health information access and protection. Any proposed solution would have to navigate through their busy workload.
