Salu.net Partners with American College of Cardiology
PORTLAND, Ore.. Sept. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- The American College of Cardiology (ACC) and Salu.net, the nation's premier provider of Internet services for medical practices, have signed an exclusive agreement for Salu.net's Website creation services and Medical Email. The agreement calls for Salu.net to offer these services and technical support to ACC members as a free Membership Benefit. The program is being provided through generous support from the Parke-Davis Pharmaceutical Division.
The exclusive agreement for Website creation and email services provides ACC members with the most comprehensive Internet tools available to promote their practices, communicate important practice information, and provide educational materials to their rapidly expanding audience of online patients. Medical Email allows ACC members to communicate confidentially using the most powerful, yet easy-to-use, physician-based e-mail service available.
``College member physicians understand the Internet is an effective, low-cost strategy for providing education for existing patients, and for explaining their services and credentials to potential patients,'' said the ACC's Elizabeth J. Wilson, Assistant Executive Vice President for Marketing, New Business Development and Member Services. ``Salu.net provides a simple on-line form that makes it easy for even the computer novice to create a professional Web presence for their practice in a matter of minutes.''
``Cardiologists are extremely sensitive to the need to build online relationships with their patients, their suppliers and the medical community at large,'' said Salu.net's CEO, David Sanders, MD. ``We've created Salu.net to be a powerful, yet extraordinarily easy-to-use service that allows physicians to remain focused on their medical practice and their love of medicine. With these exclusive benefits, ACC members will find Salu.net irresistible.''
The agreement further cements Salu.net's leadership position among companies providing Internet services targeted at medical practices. To date, over 6,000 physicians worldwide have utilized Salu.net's proprietary, online software to build and manage their Websites.
Once their Websites are created, physicians gain access to a private, personalized Resource Center for clinical and practice management. The Learn Center offers patient education through an extensive list of Web-based medical links selected by the physician.
Salu.net's Medical Email is the first such service specifically designed for the unique needs of medical practices. Among the service's many features are secure, encrypted messaging between members to preserve confidentiality; and permanent message archiving to meet the record-keeping requirements of medical practices. Spell checking is provided for both English language and medical terms.
