CHICAGO, IL, September 26, 2016 — ContextMedia:Health, the leading provider of digital solutions at the point of care, today announced the launch of a content development partnership with the Heart Rhythm Society (HRS), the country's leading resource on heart rhythm disorders. The partnership will bring content from the HRS educational library to patients in ContextMedia:Health's network of 25,000 practices by way of ContextMedia:Health's suite of digital waiting room and exam room platforms.
In addition to distributing content to target offices, ContextMedia:Health will collaborate with HRS to produce original educational video content related to heart rhythm disorders like AFib and implantable devices such as defibrillators and pacemakers. ContextMedia:Health's services will also be offered to the 4,500+ HRS member heart rhythm professionals in offices located in the United States.
"Cardiac arrhythmia is a complicated medical condition, and there could not be a greater need for awareness of these conditions and the prevention of heart disease in this country," said Anil Harjani, VP of Strategic Partnerships at ContextMedia:Health. "We were inspired to partner with the Heart Rhythm Society to achieve its mission of improving the care of patients by advancing research and education around cardiac arrhythmia, a mission that perfectly aligns with our work at ContextMedia:Health. With over 14 million patients impacted by arrhythmia conditions in this country, we cannot underestimate the power of delivering the Heart Rhythm Society's content at scale, and are excited to collaborate with its team to create more quality education for patients."
"The Heart Rhythm Society recognizes ContextMedia:Health and their platform as a quality educational tool," said James Youngblood, CEO. "The tool further disseminates important health information to patients currently suffering from heart rhythm disorders and will bring increased awareness to those with signs and symptoms."
