Updated Site Captures the Crystal Run Healthcare Ethos of Offering the Best Medical Care Possible in Efficient, Engaging Ways
Middletown, N.Y. – August 6, 2015 – Crystal Run has taken its commitment to exceptional patient care to the World Wide Web. The leader in health care unveiled a new website featuring a design refresh that introduced a new, clean look while also creating a more intuitive patient experience.
“We recognize that today’s patients are actively engaged in gathering information and the Internet is often their first stop when they are seeking medical attention,” said Crystal Run’s Managing Partner and CEO, Hal Teitelbaum MD, JD, MBA. “Crystal Run has prioritized the improvement of the patient’s healthcare experience from the ground up. Our new web design captures that mission, and provides visitors with the level of care they have come to expect from Crystal Run.”
The new site was strategically designed to allow visitors to quickly navigate the site’s most important features: finding a doctor, scheduling appointments, and accessing patient information. It retains many of the popular tech features that patients depend on, including setting appointments on the website (powered by ZocDoc) and having virtual appointments (two-way video chat sessions, powered by LiveHealth Online).
New to the site is a robust health library, empowering patients to take more control of their health with access to information on hundreds of topics. It also includes interactive quizzes and health calculators, so visitors can calculate their pregnancy due date, assess risk of diabetes or stroke, and test their knowledge of driving risks – and much more. The site still lives at CrystalRunHealthcare.com.
