BANGOR, Maine — This year it is estimated 56 percent of the world’s population owns smartphones. As more and more people use smartphones as a tool in their daily lives, EMMC must provide mobile tools to patients, visitors, and staff who are on the go. In November 2013, more than 18 percent of the visits to EMMC’s website were from mobile devices, and that number is growing.
Eastern Maine Medical Center’s website, www.emmc.org, is now smart phone and tablet friendly. The mobile version of this site is not just the full website shrunk down to fit onto a smaller screen; it is a version of the site designed for easy access and tailored to mobile users.
EMMC’s website now recognizes when a mobile user goes to www.emmc.org and opens the mobile version of the site automatically- with the option to go to the full site if needed. Mobile visitors can easily access:
- A directory of services and contacts
- Frequently used phone numbers
- Directions and locations for EMMC services
- Construction updates
- Visitor services
- EMMC Physician Finder
- A health library
- EMMC’s Career Center
The new mobile site was designed as a response to a growing mobile community, giving web users easy access to important health information from wherever they are.
