A RESPONSIVE WEBSITE FOR THE MUHC
The McGill University Health Center is one of the most modern and largest academic research institutes in North America. To consolidate is important position in medical research, the MUHC wanted to technically modernize its website. The biggest challenge of this project was to allow better accessibility to information for all users (patients, visitors, community ...).
For this new website, the MUHC teams have trusted the expertise and creativity of our MultipleMedia web agency.
A GRAPHIC AND TECHNICAL MODERNIZATION
- Modernize the MUHC website to reflect their high level of reliability,
- Easy navigation on both mobile and desktop,
- Migrate the 30,000 "nodes" listed in French and English.
Choosing an Open Source CMS
Once again MultipleMedia showed strong expertise in Drupal Open Source CMS.
As the migration of MUHC website content is a central issue of the project, the choice of the Drupal solution facilitated content management in both French and English while limiting costs through the use of a free Open Source solution.
Let's talk about design!
MultipleMedia wanted to rethink the entire website design while respecting the graphic charter of the university center.
To this end, we opted for a simplified structure, a clean and dynamic site and neutral tones (white, black and gray).
The fluidity of the website in mobile
As statistics show, Internet users are increasingly using their phones to visit websites. It was important for the MUHC to entirely review the accessibility of its website on mobile phone.
The new interface developed by MultipleMédia allows fluidity on any device.
Quebec accessibility standards, based on the Canadian WCAG 2.0 AA standard
In order to make information more accessible to all users, it was important in this redesign project to meet Quebec's digital accessibility standards based on the Canadian WCAG standard.
But what is the Canadian WCAG standard?
To be brief, the rules for the accessibility of Web content are enforced by WCAG standards, which include a wide range of recommendations to make a website accessible to people living with disabilities.
These suggestions can include the ability to change the contrast of a page, increase the font of the text, the addition of descriptive behind each multimedia content ... recommendations to make the content of your website readable for all.
Thanks to these good practices, the MUHC's new website now offers a complete and satisfying user experience for all patients and visitors alike.

Finally, the McGill University Health Center website is the result of a solid partnership. Through this experience, MultipleMedia had the opportunity to completely revise the MUHC website from the mobile and desktop artistic direction to the development of the final platform.
