National Stroke Foundation (NSF)

A suite of interrelated websites built for the National Stroke Foundation, that form a pioneering digital platform to assist with stroke rehabilitation and prevention.

The solution received multiple awards, including Sitecore's Best use of connected data award, as well as an honoree Webby Award in the Health category.

I was one of two solution architects, as well as a lead full stack developer on this project.

The platform is composed of the following web sites.


The NSF identified that once released from hospital, stroke survivors were left on their own to navigate through what is a life changing experience. EnableMe was conceived to help stroke survivors rehabilitate with support from other survivors, creating a self supporting and self growing community.

The website had to be accessible to people with a broad range of disabilities that survivors can be left with after stroke, and the the various combinations that they may occur in. We broke new ground in creating a highly adaptable accessibility wizard.

EnableMe may strike you as "not very pretty" at first, but this is by design and is the result of much research and protyping of techniques to make the website accessible to all survivors.



InformMe is a sister site to EnableMe, and focuses on serving the health care professionals that treat stroke survivors. This is an information sharing system. It offers the ability to register health care professionals to be authenticated with one or more hospitals to recieve and utilise core metrics and data points that are relevant to the treatment and prevention of stroke.

The final site in the suite, the Stroke Foundation website, serves as the main point for other institutions and the general public to find information about the foundation, and the programs and services it offers. It also serves to drive donations to the foundation, as well as direct health care professionals and the public to InformMe and EnableMe respectively.
