Reno, NV (PRWEB) April 13, 2010
Drugs.com has entered into an exclusive content partnership with Understand.com to provide pharmaceutical companies a new, premium educational 3D animation solution on the Drugs.com web site.
This PhRMA compliant educational initiative, The Mechanism For Action™ Program, enhances current drug-specific product information on Drugs.com with interactive 3D animations explaining how a drug’s mechanism of action works and how the product specifically treats its targeted disease or condition. Understand.com will exclusively develop the 3D content on a custom basis with pharmaceutical companies. In addition, the 3D drug animations will also be made available for patient education use on the pharmaceutical companies’ web properties.
Recent statistics show that Healthcare sites are one of the fastest-growing online destinations and consumers now routinely make use of dedicated websites offering authoritative, professional health information to supplement the advice of their healthcare provider. As the leading drug specific information destination online, Drugs.com attracts more than 12,000,000 unique visitors to its website each month. This first-of-its-kind patient education program will provide pharmaceutical companies with access to highly-targeted and engaged consumers seeking information about drugs that can treat their condition.
“This partnership combines Drugs.com vast library of information with Understand.com’s 3D medical animation expertise. Ultimately this will provide pharmaceutical clients access to millions of consumers, while improving the healthcare literacy of patients,” said Darik Volpa, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Understand.com.
“We are very excited to offer this unique educational content.” said Philip Thornton, Chief Executive Officer of Drugs.com. “High quality 3D animation adds yet another dimension to our extensive array of online tools and resources.”
