We worry about your Digital Accessibility so you don’t have to.

Around 56.7 million Americans currently live with some form of disability. This number continues to increase as the population ages. It is expected that by 2060, the number of Americans living with disabilities will double to nearly 90 million. Those with vision, hearing, or physical disabilities are expected to make up around 20 percent of the population. These individuals can experience significant challenges when it comes to accessing websites, as well as applications and online documents.

ADA Compliance for Healthcare Institutions

When it comes to the healthcare industry, being able to access information should be the least of your concerns. Accessibility for anyone, especially those with disabilities, makes a huge difference in their lives.

Why is being ADA Compliant important in Healthcare Institutions for those with disabilities?

  • If the kiosk at the Urgent Care Center doesn’t allow someone to zoom in to read the screen, a person with low vision will have to say their personal information out loud for another person to enter in their information.
  • If informational videos on wellness topics have not been captioned or transcribed, a deaf patient won’t be able to take advantage of their information.
  • If the software display on a medical device to track a heart condition is so small and the patient who wears cannot read it, they will not be able to track their heart condition.

The Law: Section 1557 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA, Obamacare)
