Dick Stapleton, Health and Human Services Department

Everyone's on smartphones and tablets these days and lots of websites are becoming more mobile-friendly. This year, the Health and Human Services Department moved HHS.gov to a responsive design template. That lets users more easily read, pan and scroll on a website regardless of the viewing device. Now HHS is sharing its design code so other agencies can make their own websites more responsive. Dick Stapleton, deputy director of the HHS Digital Communications Division, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss the new move.
