HealthDay Launches Physician’s Briefing Essentials
An Innovative Physician Communications Program
NORWALK, Conn. (Nov. 4, 2013) – HealthDay is now offering Physician's Briefing Essentials, a managed and hosted turnkey physician communications program.
Physician's Briefing Essentials features your physician-centric messages within a specialty-specific eNewsletter, which also includes breaking clinical news articles and free Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits for physicians.
Physician’s Briefing articles with AMA PRA Category 1 credits™ are now available and will increase to five daily articles by Dec. 1. The five featured specialties include: Cardiology, Diabetes & Endocrinology, Family Medicine, Hematology & Oncology, and OBGYN & Women’s Health. Additional CME specialties are planned for 2014.
"We are excited to provide a service that allows hospitals to connect with community physicians through tailored announcements,” said Tony Hall, Director, National Accounts. Physician’s Briefing Essentials is sent to physicians with an individual hospital's branding to communicate key updates, improve relationships and provide physicians and other medical professionals with useful and timely information.
Adding free CME credits to Physician's Briefing articles is a result of the joint sponsorship of Paradigm Medical Communications, LLC and HealthDay. Paradigm Medical Communications, LLC is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing education credit to physicians. After reading articles that are accredited for CME, physicians can create their own online accounts, track their learning activity and easily print certificates.
Physician's Briefing Essentials combines value-added clinical news, free CME credits and a vehicle to inform physicians about new hospital programs and services into one user friendly online experience.
