BOSTON, Oct. 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- BBK Worldwide, a company with a history of patient recruitment and engagement excellence, announces Zaggo, Inc., a nonprofit organization dedicated to patients and their caregivers, as a featured contributor to Clinical Notifier (ClinicalNotifier.com). Designed to help patients and caregivers find pathways to better healthcare, Clinical Notifier is a free web-based resource that provides the latest news, tools, educational content, and clinical study opportunities. As a contributor, Zaggo will provide content for the Resource Lab, which features information about clinical studies, tools and tips, and a caregiver's corner. The partnership reflects the commitment the two companies share to enhancing the patient experience and to educating and empowering healthcare consumers in making informed decisions about clinical research participation.
"Whether searching for clinical study opportunities or healthcare information, Clinical Notifier supports an educated consumer—helping pave the way for a much-needed connection between consumer and study," comments Joan F. Bachenheimer, founding principal and CEO, BBK Worldwide. "We chose to partner with Zaggo because we wanted to provide Clinical Notifier users with the most informed and insightful content—based on in-depth research and personal experience—to support them as educated consumers in their pursuit of the best possible care and outcomes."
Zaggo was borne out of the experience of its founder and president, Roberta Carson, after she was thrust into the role of caregiver for her son Zachary during his 27-month battle with pediatric brain cancer. "I realized fairly quickly there was a lack of practical, easy-to-use information and tools to help patients and families become effective, engaged, empowered members of their medical teams, all of which are critical to receiving better care," comments Roberta Carson, founder and president, Zaggo, Inc. "I am pleased that BBK selected my blog as a resource for Clinical Notifier. Like Zaggo, BBK's commitment to patient-centric care is a founding principle. I am honored to be partnering with BBK and supporting patients and families in this way."
Zaggo's contributed content will cover topics such as advocating for your loved ones and researching new treatment options by evaluating clinical trial results, and it will speak directly to the needs and concerns of healthcare consumers. Clinical Notifier is available at ClinicalNotifier.com.
Next month, Ms. Carson will be featured in a BBK Pharma15 Live! segment discussing her motivation to help others. She will also discuss a new approach she has developed to empower patients and their families to become more engaged, effective members of their medical team. The segment will be available on BBK's website (bbkworldwide.com).
