The Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM) provides continuing medical education for healthcare professionals and promotes exploration of emerging research toward improving patient care and outcomes. The organization wanted a website that could serve as a resource and communication tool for its varied audiences. That meant organizing a large, wide-ranging and constantly changing body of data and presenting it in a way that is inviting and easily navigable to both patients and professional members.

Because of the scope of the project and the numerous goals it had to accomplish, the Galaxy Bright team began by consulting extensively with IFM representatives to forge a consensus on the overall vision and underlying priorities for the website. A strategic brand was created that reflects IFM’s core values of “Information, Inspiration, Integration.” That brand was then implemented across all aspects of the customized web solution, including the Member Forum and online commerce applications for products and event registration. Standards were established so that future additions and expansions can easily reflect the same consistent image.

As a result of the new website, member enrollment has increased and event registrations are up. Both physicians and patients are finding the site a reliable resource, exactly as hoped.

“Our website is beautiful and functional and adaptable to our changing needs. I would say we got more from our project than we envisioned – a really great job.” — Sheila Quinn, Senior Editor
