SLACK Incorporated launches medical website Healio.com, enabling health care specialists to select and tailor news, information and education to their daily practice of medicine. Designed as an in-depth, clinical information resource, Healio.com brings together award-winning news reporting with expert perspectives, dynamic video and multimedia, question-and-answer columns, CME and other educational activities, blogs, peer-reviewed journals and a wide range of popular medical book titles all in one place.
“Healio.com demonstrates our commitment to the specialists we serve. Our ultimate goal is to equip physicians with news and information they need to better treat their patients,” said Joan-Marie Stiglich, Senior Vice President of SLACK Incorporated.
Since 1923, specialty physicians have come to rely on SLACK Incorporated as a trusted source of specialty news, information and education. Healio.com unites this expertise and focused content into a single platform, with enhanced organization and personalization to provide a deeper experience for the specialist and subspecialist.
“Specialists wanted trusted information from the start, but now they have a single place that helps filter the overflow of information and focus on their own specialty area, thus saving time by getting right to what is relevant to their practice.” Stiglich said.
Healio.com is also the new online home for SLACK’s print publications including: Cardiology Today, Endocrine Today, HemOnc Today, Infectious Diseases in Children, Infectious Disease News, Orthopedics Today, Ocular Surgery News, Primary Care Optometry News, and O&P Business News.

The site also features sections for Nursing and allied health professions.
For advertisers, Healio.com extends the audience connection of SLACK’s trusted resources and offers a new targeted, measurable, contextually relevant outlet for educational activities.
