Clinton, NJ (October 23, 2020) – International Healthcare Media, LLC (IHM), a global media communications company that engages healthcare professionals and patients through print media, live conferences, social media, and a robust digital platform, announced today that it has developed strategic alliances with five esteemed medical organizations.
Four of the partnerships are designed to help ophthalmologists improve patient outcomes through broad distribution of content on IHM’s Ophthalmology360® platform. Launched in 2018, Ophthalmology360® is a time-saving digital platform for the ophthalmic community, providing timely and relevant summaries of important studies, critical coverage of top national and international eye care meetings, and best practices from the country’s leading ophthalmic surgeons. The website is a hub that keeps clinicians abreast of the latest and most relevant clinical, practice management, marketing, and legislative news, as well as patient education and other important developments impacting eye care.
The alliances are with the American Macular Degeneration Foundation, Foundation Fighting Blindness, Glaucoma Research Foundation, and Women in Ophthalmology. The partnerships will help both Ophthalmology360® and these organizations meet the important clinical and research needs of their audiences. Ophthalmology360® will provide coverage of important conferences hosted by Women in Ophthalmology and will be a key marketing partner with the society. Specialists from the Foundation Fighting Blindness will contribute expertise and analysis on important topics such as emerging therapies and inherited retinal degenerations.
The fourth partnership is between RD360™, IHM’s rare disease platform, and World Orphan Drug Congress. RD360™ is an all-encompassing resource hub that compiles the entirety of relevant information on multiple rare disease states to help health care professionals make the biggest impact on some of the smallest patient populations. The RD360™ and World Orphan Drug alliance will lead to wider coverage of the orphan drug group’s conferences, and thus broader dissemination of important information in the high need area of rare diseases.
Christopher Ciraulo, IHM’s President & CEO, states, “These strategic alliances demonstrate our commitment to content creation, development, and dissemination in two important areas of medicine. Joining IHM’s clinical content platforms — which have gained traction and credibility in record time – with organizations that have stellar reputations and are among medicine’s elite, enables us to fulfill our mission of helping clinicians deliver quality care, improve patient outcomes and satisfaction, and optimize quality along the continuum of care.”
Matthew Marano, MD, Chief Medical Editor, says these partnerships “enhance the entire IHM platform and continues to offer its community a treasure trove of late-breaking content.” The partnerships extend the overall reach, adds instantaneous brand credibility, and assists health care professionals in improving quality of care and patient outcomes. Moreover, it exemplifies the IHM corporate tagline, “All content Should Be This Good®.”
