Westport, CT (PRWEB) March 22, 2012
Sharecare, an interactive health and wellness social platform providing people with access to healthcare professionals, information, and programs to live their healthiest life, announced a new partnership with dLife, the number-one resource and diabetes community network for people living with diabetes. Together, they will provide access to clinically proven tools that can help millions of people living with diabetes and their caregivers become better diabetes self-care managers.
With this partnership, Sharecare is addressing a critical need to help simplify the consumer's search for diabetes health, wellness, and nutrition information, and benefit from the collective wisdom of expert contributors to create a more actionable experience.
“Empowering people to make healthier choices in their daily lives is the cornerstone of the Sharecare mission,” said Donna Hill Howes, RN, MS, Senior Vice President, Sharecare. “That’s why we are really excited about our partnership with dLife. We know that together we can continue to expand outreach and provide reliable, practical solutions for those living with diabetes.”
Sharecare’s growing reach and search engine tools will enable more diabetes patients and caregivers to find trusted, accurate diabetes lifestyle information. By leveraging dLife’s extensive database of knowledge—from its multi-media community network, including a selection of expert nutritional Q&A, and its diabetes-friendly recipes from dLife’s library of over 9,000 recipes, to broadcast-quality diabetes lifestyle-focused video segments from the award-winning dLifeTV, an inspirational national show with dedicated diabetes programming each week—Sharecare will be able to deliver the information its visitors need.
“dLife is excited to lend our deep multi-media library to enable more people with diabetes to find trusted and reliable resources,” says Phyllis Schneble, EVP Marketing and Sales, dLife. “We understand the daily struggle of living with diabetes 24/7, so if we can ease the burden for anyone searching for real-world solutions, we move one step closer to fulfilling our mission.”
Launched in 2010 and based in Atlanta, GA, Sharecare is an interactive, social Q & A platform that allows people to ask, learn and act upon questions of health and wellness. Created by Jeff Arnold and Dr. Mehmet Oz, in partnership with Harpo Studios, Remark Media, (NASDAQ: MARK), Sony Pictures Television, and Discovery Communications, the company's innovative approach provides the consumer access to a wide array of health and wellness experts ranging from hospitals to doctors, specialists to non-profits, to healthcare companies and active health consumers, creating a thriving community where healthcare knowledge is built, shared and put into practice.
