CHICAGO, May 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- ContextMedia:Health, America's fastest growing patient education company, has expanded its suite of condition-specific networks into 6 new health verticals. The announcement follows the ContextMedia Exam Room Tablet, the first interactive educational tool in the point of care space.
The new speciality networks include Oncology Infusion Rooms, OB/GYN, Allergy/Immunology, Infectious Disease, Urology and Pediatrics. Launched in partnership with ContextMedia:Health's sponsors and several leading health systems, the networks will impact 1,000+ physician offices within each of these verticals by the end of the year.
With this expansion, ContextMedia:Health is the first patient education company to expand digitally into Oncology infusion rooms. Through feedback from cancer patient support organizations such as Immerman Angels, and partnerships with leading oncology content providers, ContextMedia:Health adapted the design and content of its Exam Room Tablet to address and improve the infusion room experience. The firm will be piloting the program across 500 infusion rooms, and has plans to 10x distribution in a year.
"After witnessing the success of our Exam Room Tablet in driving patient engagement, we were confident that further innovation on this product could create a holistic experience for patients receiving infusion therapy in their Oncologist office," said Ashik Desai, EVP of Business Growth and Analytics.

The Oncology Tablet is designed to provide patients with access to education, entertainment, resources and a patient portal, delivering an empathetic and positive experience during the 3 plus hours spent in an infusion room."
