Networks in Health have announced that the leading independent network of medical professionals in Australia has joined its growing online community.
e-heathspace.com.au launched only 12 months ago but has already attracted a community of over 9000 physicians (around 45% of the entire GP population), all of whom will now be able to communicate with as many as 600,000 other medical professionals on the European network.
Figures suggest that 40% of the Australian members used the site on a regular basis, while a community that initially involved only GPs has expanded to include secondary care physicians from specialty groups such as oncology and cardiology.
Gareth Thomas, Development Director of Networks in Health, said:
“The launch of this network of communities is answering a real need, especially for organisations wishing to research and engage with physicians internationally. We’ve been approached by many global pharmaceutical companies and healthcare organisations to talk about the unprecedented access to physicians now offered.”
Kamalesh Goswami, the Director of Online Solutions of e-healthspace.com.au was equally upbeat about the union, saying:
“We are now able to offer clients a single access point to a huge international physician audience. It opens up enormous opportunities, with international communications, marketing, education and research programmes all capable of being managed and measured in a fully integrated way.”
