Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) is the largest philanthropy in the United States devoted exclusively to health and health care. RWJF works with a diverse group of organizations and individuals to identify solutions and achieve comprehensive, measurable and timely change. RWJF is dedicated to producing, synthesizing and distributing knowledge, new ideas and expertise that will help to improve the health and health care of all Americans.
RWJF sought to redesign their site, RWJF.org, in order to bring a modern, flexible user experience to their end users and authors, while maintaining better control over their brand presentation. With a large number of complex datasets and an extensive content archive, RWJF needed a system that would allow authors to easily reuse components throughout the site and follow a simple workflow for editing, review and publishing needs. Dramatic improvement in site performance along with faceted search capabilities, social media integrations, multiple blogs and comprehensive video content were also critical requirements.
To meet these challenges, Velir implemented the Adobe CQ content management system (CMS). The powerful, scalable platform simplified the process of content creation and publication, providing support for in-place editing, drag-and-drop page composition and extensive search engine optimization (SEO) controls. Velir also built and deployed a new CQ-enabled DataHub module, allowing users to customize and visualize key health care facts and figures at several geographic levels. The RWJF DataHub is built on Datacenter, Velir’s signature data management and visualization platform, which turns data into interactive maps, charts, tables and dozens of other types of visualizations that offer a compelling view of the available datasets and data points. To further enhance the user experience, Velir partnered with Threespot Media on a fresh look for the website. Throughout the site, Solr search was implemented, offering faceted search with custom abstracts and ranking logic to quickly serve up more relevant content.
- Responsive, content-driven front end design
- Adobe CQ custom drag and drop components that allow for a flexible, intuitive and easy to use authoring experience
- Customized community and social media integrations including a news digest feed
- Robust search, powered by Solr for faster, more relevant results
- A flexible CQ-enabled DataHub module to visualize facts and figures in order to better inform health care policies and practices
The redesigned RWJF website provides functionality that greatly enhances the user experience and level of engagement using a variety of innovative technologies. The Adobe CQ platform allows better content management with easier workflow, and seamless integration with search features, social media and video capabilities, while the new DataHub vastly expands users’ ability to gain insight into key RWJF curated data. The careful implementation of these technologies expands the reach and capabilities of RWJF, furthering the Foundation’s mission to improve access and delivery of health care in the United States.
