CINCINNATI, Oct. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Healthy Advice® Networks, the nation's leading provider of point-of-care health-education programs for consumers and physicians, announced outstanding results once again this year.  While the industry averaged a weak total prescription growth rate of only 2.7%, as reported by leading industry research firm Wolters Kluwer Pharma Solutions*, Healthy Advice Networks averaged new prescription incremental gains of 10% across their primary care networks and 11.5% in their specialty networks.

"We are extremely pleased, but not surprised, that we outpaced the industry," commented Deborah Schnell, President, Sales and Strategic Planning at Healthy Advice Networks.  "Our award-winning health education content is designed to deliver actionable results that drive behavior change. Superior results are not accomplished by just being in a physician's office, but what we do with that time. We are delivering information the way patients want to receive it, ensuring they understand it, internalize it, and act on it. That is what drives outstanding results."

Scott Nesbitt, Executive Vice President, Analytics and Information, Healthy Advice Networks, added, "Excluding patent expirations, our renewal rates historically average 80% and are indicative of our clients' confidence in our ability to deliver exceptional results year after year.  As they evaluate their strategies, they trust we will deliver a solid performance and we do not disappoint.  The fact they achieved double-digit incremental gains in a year when the average industry growth was so low reinforces they made the right choice when choosing Healthy Advice Networks."

Healthy Advice Networks is the largest and fastest growing health information company in the industry. This year Healthy Advice launched another primary care network, as well as several new programs targeted to both physicians and patients.
