Elsevier to Provide PracticeUpdate Curated Content to Sosido Member Healthcare Associations

Elsevier and Sosido collaborate to deliver medical content to an expanded network of society-affiliated healthcare professionals

Philadelphia, PA, April 5, 2017

Elsevier, the information analytics company specializing in science and health, is collaborating with Sosido to provide curated medical content from PracticeUpdate® to healthcare professionals who are members of niche medical associations in North America and globally.

Sosido, a Canada-based online knowledge sharing network that connects healthcare professionals within and across groups, employs a unique email newsletter platform to reach members of medical associations and research groups across specialty areas such as oncology, transplantation, and cardiology. Sosido automatically tracks and features the publications of the groups’ members and facilitates online discussion, raising the profile of the research and accelerating the exchange of clinical knowledge. Utilizing PracticeUpdate’s curated content, Sosido can now provide exclusive, customizable medical information, insights, and analysis from PracticeUpdate’s editorial board of highly-reputable, global opinion leaders.

“Medicine as a whole is becoming more niche-focused, and so are the groups we cater to,” said Tanis Steward, Sosido CEO & Founder. “Our member healthcare professionals are exceptionally busy clinicians and researchers who don’t have time to filter through the daily deluge of new research findings and conference presentations. PracticeUpdate brings massive value by doing this work for them.”

Integrating expert content from PracticeUpdate into the weekly Sosido e-newsletter enhances the value for healthcare professionals, and drives deeper engagement and collaboration within specialty therapeutic areas. Further value is provided by the addition of expert commentary from the PracticeUpdate editorial board, helping clinicians to better understand the significance of each article and how it may impact their area of practice.

“PracticeUpdate was developed with the goal of improving healthcare by providing the relevant medical information and educational resources physicians need to diagnose and treat their patients. In addition to selecting the best and most relevant content, our PracticeUpdate experts add their context and perspectives, which allows our readers to discover what really matters for patient care,” said Allison Risko, Senior Vice President, Pharma and Life Sciences Solutions, Elsevier.  “We are excited about our collaboration with Sosido, which will expand PracticeUpdate’s reach to thousands more healthcare professionals, helping them stay current and now better connected within their industry and specialty.”
