In 2010, the Department of Justice published the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Standards for Accessible Design. Under Title I of the ADA, businesses with a minimum of 15 employees that operate for 20 or more weeks per year are required to comply with the law, not only from physical considerations but also digital accommodations.
Despite there not being any specific rules when it comes to the development of websites, we recommend that medical practices acquire the ADA package to accommodate users with disabilities.
Implementing ADA accessibility features will ensure that individuals who are blind or deaf are able to properly interact with the contents of your website.
Medco Central’s ADA package includes ensuring the inclusion of a proper color scheme, fonts, alt tags, transcript, error pages, and consistent layout of your website. We also offer a highly interactive and easy to access plugin that allows a wide range of ADA accessibility features for your website. This is a service we can implement from the ground up when developing a new website or a set of modifications to your existing website.
Whether you fall under the 15+ employee guideline or not, we recommend implementing the package to serve your patients better as well as avoid any potential grey area that could cost you attorney fees or fines of up to $50,000.
Talk to one of our consultants today to see how we can implement accessibility features to your website. ADA implementation packages start as low as $499.
