INFORMATICS

A backformation for the process of redesigning a website to give it a new look and feel, in a fashion analogous to a facelift, from whence the term. 

WebLift is also a proprietary name for a Florida-based website developer.

This term is clearly not medical, but it’s the first time I’ve seen a medically-derived backformation, and thus thought it worthy of inclusion from an etymological perspective.
