To help people find the StopAfib.org website, its founder, Mellanie True Hills, came up with patient cards that have a QR code affixed at the back and the site’s URL prominently displayed at the front.
It invites people to visit the site and get access to a lot of resources about afib, including videos, blogs and discussion boards. The mobile site, which is where the QR code takes you, is already packed with information for everybody interested and has a link to the main StopAfib.org site. It also allows you to connect on social media channels such as Facebook, Twitter and Youtube.
