University of Maryland Medical System (UMMS) is a university-based regional healthcare system focused on serving the healthcare needs of Maryland. TBG redesigned and consolidated more than 12 UMMS domains into one state-of-the-art digital ecosystem on the Sitecore platform. The sites are standardized so that they all have the same look-and-feel to ensure brand consistency. High contrast photography, compelling imagery, and interactions encourage user flow and conversion. With the migration to a single platform, content updates on the back-end create changes to appear on many pages across the digital ecosystem. The site’s improved Google Maps API allows users to search and access hospitals quickly and more easily, and integration with Kyruus results in a more robust Find a Doctor tool, which searches doctors across the entire system. TBG continues to work with UMMS to improve the site and to make greater use of the Sitecore CMS. The Digital Health Award is the 2nd award for the UMMS site. The site also won an Omni Award.

“We are excited that the UMMS site has continued to be lauded as a world-class healthcare system site,” said CEO John Berndt. “To achieve these results, UMMS and TBG teams came together to strategize, design and build a site that features state-of-the-art locations and Find a Doc search functions. As a major Mid Atlantic healthcare system, the entire region benefits from the clean UX that makes the site very easy to use which ultimately gives communities better access to excellent healthcare resources.”

The Digital Health Award win goes hand-in-hand with the numerous awards and recognition TBG has received throughout the years, including continued recognition from the Baltimore Business Journal in its Top Web Agencies Book of Lists. In addition, TBG has won numerous awards for its work, including Sitecore Site of the Year, multiple ADDY® awards, and Webby honors (the “Oscars” of the Web).
