Healthcare professionals can move healthcare forward by sharing their knowledge online
Mount Olive, NJ (PRWEB) December 19, 2012
RxEconsult healthcare social network is conducting the "Share Healthcare Knowledge" campaign to raise awareness in the healthcare community that professionals should publish their ideas and solutions online. They can easily share their posters, presentations, and other projects with the healthcare community.
Healthcare professionals and businesses are very innovative and are busy tackling and finding answers to healthcare problems. For every problem there are probably several people working in silo to find solutions or have found solutions to the problem. The healthcare community should be aware of these innovations or solutions so they can apply them to their practice. For example, several thousand posters and podium presentations are presented at major healthcare conferences every year. Some of these are later published as abstracts or full publications; most are never seen again after the scientific meeting. It is not efficient for the hard work and ideas of so many professionals to receive such little visibility. If all healthcare people share their work, projects, posters, presentations, and ideas they can help move healthcare forward.
RxEconsult is promoting the "Share Healthcare Knowledge" campaign via its website, other social media platforms, and by working directly with current members to publish interesting and useful healthcare information. The campaign will be advertised on RxEconsult to raise awareness amongst all members and several thousand RxEconsult visitors.
The RxEconsult social network platform is designed for knowledge sharing through articles, videos, document library, and discussions. Healthcare professionals, including residents and students, can publish posters, presentations, papers, and projects as articles on RxEconsult. Articles published on RxEconsult are promoted through several channels, indexed by search engines, and are available to the entire internet audience.
