Anatomy of a Mega Website: A Sagis Case Study

In the dynamic landscape and ever-changing world of healthcare, service adaptation is not optional; it’s imperative for growth and ultimate survival. For example, Sagis Diagnostics, a nationally prominent pathology laboratory based in Houston, TX, quickly propelled into exponential growth, driven by various new acquisitions and an ambitious expansion into diverse service lines. Their first thought for a viable solution was to develop a comprehensive website that works and best suits their service objectives.

With Sagis’ phenomenal growth, they needed to revamp their online presence to accommodate an expanding portfolio and ensure a seamless user experience. This case study delves into how Sagis Diagnostics partnered with BUILDINGBLOCKS Marketing Solutions (BBMS) to overcome these obstacles and emerge with a stronger brand presence.

Our Client— Sagis Diagnostics:

The company is a physician-led pathology group that provides diagnostic expertise in a variety of fields, including dermatopathology, podiatric pathology, surgical & cytopathology, molecular pathology, and toxicology, to name a few. With a commitment to precision and excellence, it serves as a cornerstone in the medical community, providing vital diagnostic services to nationwide healthcare providers and patients alike.

Their Growth Problem:

As the Sagis team expanded, they became challenged with refreshing their messaging and consolidating their website and online presence to innovate, adapt, and best reflect and incorporate their extended offerings. This necessitated merging three separate websites and two new service lines into one cohesive platform. The existing websites included:

  1. Sagis Dx
  2. Sagis Podiatry
  3. Sagis Toxicology

In addition to merging the websites and brands, Sagis found it necessary for the consolidated site to have:

  • Scalability as they continued to diversify
  • A capacity to provide user access to any page on the site within two to three clicks
  • An enhanced user-friendly admin interface, giving their team the ability to manage content on their own
  • Exceptional UI/UX for the Resident Education portion of their website to add value and create more positive learning experiences for residents and medical students
  • Improved patient and provider portals to ensure site visitors can easily and quickly access results, supplies, and needed resources and information online
