In the fast-paced world of healthcare, every minute counts. We know from personal experience that medical professionals are tirelessly committed to patient care, leaving little time to delve into the intricacies of website development, online advertising, and search engine rankings.

Importantly, there are a range of National health practitioner boards and AHPRA guidelines that govern what you may or may not include on a medical or healthcare website. These guidelines pertain specifically to the promotion of regulated health services, and concerningly, they may not be commonly familiar to those who do not specialize in digital services tailored for healthcare and medical professionals.
We understand that being an incredibly busy doctor or healthcare practitioner, you want to entrust your digital agency to understand these guidelines and ensure your website is compliant – after all, that’s our job! That’s why using an agency such as Vida Web Design that specialises in websites for doctors and other health professionals, you can be confident knowing that your website is professional, medically accurate and compliant with relevant healthcare advertising guidelines.
Are looking to automate all or part of the booking process to reduce the administrative load on your practice staff? If so, we can provide integration with your chosen Practice Management Software through a third-party booking platform such as HotDoc or HealthEngine, depending on which is compatible with your clinic software. These online booking systems will sync with the scheduling system in your Practice Management Software, meaning patients have the option to book and manage their appointments online, including after hours.
Accuracy is paramount in both medicine and web design. As health professionals, we ensure that your website not only conveys your expertise but also adheres to stringent medical terminology and regulatory guidelines. We pay meticulous attention to detail, so you can focus on what you do best—providing exceptional healthcare.
We utilise our specialist expertise in healthcare website design to delivering high-quality, medico-legally compliant websites and professional search engine optimisation services.

With the currently overburdened health system and a sector that has traditionally relied upon referral networks, you may think that online advertising for your practice is unnecessary.
However, the truth is that these days, an online presence is crucial for all types of businesses. Here is why you should consider a website for your healthcare or medical practice:
In an era where online research is prevalent, potential patients will likely search for you online before booking, and to find out useful information about accessing your services. A well-developed website showcases your qualifications and expertise, and help a potential client feel comfortable and prepared booking in for an appointment.
A professional website can establish trust and credibility for you and your practice and provide informed and accurate health and medical information, demonstrating a commitment to patient education and engagement.
Referral networks are an integral part of your practice. However, a well-designed, tailored and SEO-optimised website can work for you 24/7 (because we know that you’re already working 24/7!) and give you wider geographical reach of patients and other doctors, specialists and referring practitioners – who may be looking for the medical specialties and treatment options that you offer.
This can be particularly important for new practices who are building up their clientele, but it is still important for established practitioners and can bolster your networking efforts while you are busy treating patients.
Importantly, a health or medical service website can act as a useful and efficient tool for automating aspects of your practice. It can integrate functionality such as online booking systems, as well as useful resources and information on FAQs that can greatly reduce the workload of you, your practice management and administrative staff. A well-designed website can incorporate information and referral forms available for referring colleagues to streamline the process for both parties.
