Provide Support Online to Ensure Everyone has Access to Vital Healthcare Information

People go online for several healthcare-related reasons. Google receives over 1 billion health-related questions daily, including finding a doctor and researching symptoms.

By very nature, individuals with disabilities need more regular checkups, treatment, and assistance from health organizations. That’s why healthcare providers must make the information on their websites accessible. Otherwise, disabled people face further barriers and risk receiving an unequal standard of care.

Why you Should Provide Equal Access to Online Information on Healthcare Websites

Equality of Service
No one should feel like they are jumping through hoops to access healthcare. Web accessibility is vital for healthcare organizations to provide an equal standard of care.
Support the Vulnerable
The aging population and those with disabilities need more regular checkups, treatment, and assistance from healthcare organizations.
