The University of Ottawa Heart Institute launched its new website in early January. New and updated information throughout, a simplified structure and a fresh new look all make the site an excellent place to learn about heart disease; cardiovascular care, research and education; and the Heart Institute itself. Key changes include:
Finding Information and Moving Around
The site is organized around the Heart Institute’s four primary audiences: Patients & Visitors, Healthcare Professionals, Researchers, and Students & Trainees.
New dropdown menus for these four major sections let users access information throughout the site from any page. Corporate information is available in the footer menu.
For Patients and the Public
- Coming to the Heart Institute: A new section that pulls together practical information for patients and visitors
- Diseases & Conditions: Fully updated and expanded
- Tests & Procedures: Fully updated and reorganized
- Tools & Resources: A new section consolidating new and existing educational and support information
For Healthcare Professionals, Researchers and Trainees
And, importantly for users on tablets and other mobile devices, the site is now mobile-friendly.
Expanded multimedia content and additional online projects are planned for the coming year. Visit www.ottawaheart.ca to start exploring.
