At Adage, our goal is to design and develop award-winning websites that solve business challenges and advance the purpose of organizations. I’m proud to announce Adage is the winner of two Horizon Interactive Awards for our work with the American Academy of Orthapaedic Surgeon’s (AAOS) Orthoinfo site. Orthoinfo’s goal is to provide visitors with information to make informed decisions about their healthcare. For full website redesign and development projects, Adage won Silver in the Health/Human Services and Responsive/Mobile Design Horizon Award categories.


About Horizon Interactive Awards

The Horizon Interactive Awards are a prestigious international competition recognizing outstanding achievement among interactive media producers from all over the world. The Competition has a rich history of recognizing the “best of the best” web sites, videos, mobile applications, advertising and more.

Judges looked for the best blend between creativity, content and functionality.

Each entry was judged on the following:

  • Solution creativity and originality
  • Overall graphic design/appearance/user experience
  • Communication of message
  • Technical merit
  • Effectiveness of solution

About AAOS Orthoinfo

Orthofinfo users desire to find reference materials quickly, a challenge due to OrthoInfo’s impressive content library. Adage designed and implemented faceted search with Episerver Find, which allows users to quickly filter search results, find what they’re looking for and never reach dead ends without results.

The work completed by Adage enabled AAOS’s OrthoInfo to establish consumer trust and credibility through site content and functionality. For orthopaedic surgeons, physician assistants, nurses and other health care staff, OrthoInfo is a valuable tool in aiding and enhancing patient care. The site offers images, articles and learning modules on a variety of topics from arthritis and sports injuries, to preparing for surgery, pain management, and recovery. This content is accessible and easy to view on any device. Staff also can email specific OrthoInfo links, or direct patients and caregivers to the website for more information.

“The new OrthoInfo empowers patients by helping them to better understand their conditions, find answers to questions and prepare for surgical procedures—anytime, anywhere. In addition, OrthoInfo is an important in-office resource and tool for our orthopaedic surgeon members, reflecting the Academy’s commitment to providing optimal patient care.” – AAOS President William J. Maloney, MD
