Healio.com launches MedBlog

Unique portal created for physician exchange across specialties

 
Thorofare, NJ
– SLACK Incorporated, publisher of Healio.com, has announced the launch of MedBlog, a new blog portal for all medical specialists on Healio.com.

A single resource at Healio.com/blogs, MedBlog provides one place on Healio.com for physicians to see what their colleagues in other specialties are talking about today – and are invited to contribute to the conversations. Current topics range from clinical to regulatory to practice management.

“We are very excited about the new blog portal at Healio.com/blogs. It helps meet the need for a cross-specialty dialogue that is growing in importance to the health care community,” said Joan-Marie Stiglich, ELS, Senior Vice President of SLACK Incorporated. “We encourage medical professionals to browse the blogs and become involved in the discussions inside as well as outside of their own specialties.”

The diversity of expertise at MedBlog allows physicians to view regular topics of interest, as well as share their knowledge beyond their own specialty with other medical specialties. MedBlog includes a growing list of more than 40 blogs in these specialties: Cardiology, Endocrinology, Hematology/Oncology, Infectious Disease, Ophthalmology, Optometry, Orthopedics, Orthotics/Prosthetics, Pediatrics and Psychiatry.
