Who is SHM?

The Society of Hospital Medicine (SHM) is a leading organization representing the field of hospital medicine. SHM is dedicated to supporting the professional and personal lives of hospitalists, promoting excellence in patient care, and fostering innovation in the healthcare delivery system.


Website Woes

However, their website, the crucial online gateway to the hospitalist community, wasn't keeping pace with SHM's dynamism. The existing website presented several challenges that hindered user engagement and efficient communication:

  • Static Content: The website lacked the vibrancy and energy that reflects the fast-paced nature of hospital medicine. Static content failed to capture the real-life experiences and needs of hospitalists.
  • Cumbersome Navigation: Finding relevant information was a frustrating obstacle course. Unintuitive navigation made it difficult for hospitalists to access valuable resources quickly and efficiently.
  • Content Management Struggles: Updating the website was a time-consuming process requiring IT intervention. This limited SHM's ability to keep the content fresh and relevant.

A Collaborative Approach

Building a Website for the Future

SHM partnered with Brightfind to transform their online presence and create a website that truly served their vibrant community. We embarked on a collaborative journey, focusing on user needs and achieving SHM's strategic goals.

What We Did to Empower SHM's Digital Vision

  • Dynamic Web Design & Development: We crafted a visually captivating website that reflects the energy and innovation of hospital medicine. The design incorporates powerful visuals and engaging storytelling to resonate with hospitalists.
  • User-Centric Design (UX) Optimization: Intuitive navigation and a well-defined information architecture were prioritized. Now, hospitalists can find the information they need quickly and efficiently, saving valuable time.
  • Empowering Content Management: We implemented a user-friendly CMS, giving SHM's marketing team the autonomy to create, edit, and update website content without relying on IT support.
  • Seamless System Integration: The new website seamlessly integrates with SHM's existing Association Management System (AMS). This ensures a unified data flow and allows for personalized communication with hospitalists.
