Caregiver Connect Employee Community

Story & Challenge

Aurora Health Care is an integrated health care provider with more than 30,000 caregivers on staff, countless informational documents and over 200 web applications. Aurora identified the need for a comprehensive caregiver portal (“Caregiver Connect”) that would house resources, simplify the process of finding and using web applications, facilitate collaboration between caregivers and support Aurora’s overall purpose – to help people live well.

Strategy & Solution

As part of this ongoing multi-phase project, 7Summits designed a comprehensive homepage with a clean, restructured interface. The new homepage uses engaging formats such as videos and social components in a more effective way than before. 7Summits’ design and information architecture work on the homepage earned Aurora Health Care a Ragan 2013 Employee Communications Award for Best Intranet Design. The award announcement lauded Caregiver Connect for its on-brand visual content, people-focused written content, highly organized user experience and interactivity.

  • 7Summits had the battle scars, not just the philosophy. Their extensive experience and expertise in social intranet strategy and activation is what ultimately led us to choose them for the project, and we've been very pleased with their work. We've worked with the same team throughout the project, which is critical. We made the right choice in selecting 7Summits.
