NEW YORK, July 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Everyday Health, Inc., a leading publisher of health information, and the American Heart Association, the largest voluntary non-profit organization fighting cardiovascular disease, announced today that they have joined forces to bring the latest cardiovascular news to healthcare professionals. MedPage Today, an Everyday Health property and the fastest-growing medical news professional website (comScore), will develop a daily cardiovascular newsletter that will be distributed via e-mail to AHA online registrants. The e-newsletter, "Cardiovascular Daily," which will launch in July 2011, will provide healthcare professionals with robust, in-depth coverage of breaking cardiovascular news. Distribution of the MedPage Today-produced "Cardiovascular Daily" will be accomplished in phases to reach over 200,000 healthcare professionals who have opted-in to receive news via AHA's website, AmericanHeart.org.
By combining the AHA and MedPage databases "Cardiovascular Daily" will reach a highly targeted cardiology audience – making it the leading news source for professionals in the cardiovascular community. With its award-winning team of medical journalists, and multimedia producers, MedPage Today publishes comprehensive daily coverage of cardiovascular news as well as analysis of legislative and regulatory news from Washington that impacts cardiology professionals.
"MedPage Today is pleased to meet the needs of healthcare professionals across the nation, and this new relationship with The American Heart Association significantly increases our reach in the cardiology sector," said Robert Stern, founder of MedPage Today and Publisher, Professional Division, Everyday Health, Inc. (Everyday Health acquired MedPage Today in December 2010). "Currently, we reach more than one-third of all physicians online," he added.
The popular website, www.MedPageToday.com, is the premiere news service for physicians that delivers a clinical perspective on the breaking medical news that their patients are reading.
