NORTHAMPTON, MASS. 3/15/2005 05:00 AM GMT (TransWorldNews)
Healthcommunities.com, Inc., (HC) has launched its newest medical specialty website, seniorhealthchannel.com. The site provides comprehensive information about common medical conditions that affect the senior community. Developed and monitored by board-certified physicians, seniorhealthchannel provides easily accessible information—including symptoms, diagnostic procedures, and treatment options—about Alzheimer’s disease, glaucoma, heart disease and other conditions relevant to elders.
Unlike many other consumer information websites, seniorhealthchannel does not require user log-in, the information is developed and monitored by physicians, it is free, and it is devoted exclusively to topics of interest to seniors.
Consistently one of the fastest-growing populations to use the Internet for health information, seniors are exceptionally savvy consumers. “Seniors and their caregivers can feel comfortable using seniorhealthchannel because the information was developed by physicians,” said HC founder Stanley J. Swierzewski III, M.D. “Whether someone is looking for a local specialist or is interested in medication side effects, seniorhealthchannel is a comprehensive resource.”
HC also offers website services for doctors specialized in geriatrics and other specialties. Each customized practice website includes patient education information from seniorhealthchannel as well as hosting, edits, e-mail accounts, marketing support and personal customer service. The company is offering an introductory rate of $65/month for comprehensive site services, with the first two months free.
Healthcommunities.com, Inc., a privately held company founded in 1998, serves health care consumers searching for reliable information. Healthcommunities.com is a Physician Developed and Monitored® online community providing information and resources to health care professionals and consumers in a trusted environment.
