As the world of publishing has evolved, so has the mission of SLACK Incorporated, a family-owned company that has provided the medical community with award-winning information since 1923, and the publishers of Orthopedics. From the company’s start in print 90 years ago to its current roster of medical newspapers and 18 different Web sites, SLACK’s team now drives expert information to >9 million users each year.
In the next generation, Orthopedics readers will now have access to all of this valuable medical information at the new online home of all SLACK publications: www.Healio.com. This new online platform offers users clinical information from within their specialties and the specialties of their peers. Users will now have access to breaking news in all of the existing content areas SLACK provides, in addition to brand new content. The specialites you’ll find on Healio.com include:
- Adolescent Medicine
- Allergy and Immunology
- Geriatric Medicine
- Infectious Disease
- Orthotics and Prosthetics
- Sports Medicine
Healio.com will also feature onsite meeting coverage, blogs, video, and multimedia presentations, as well as editorials, columns, and perspectives from professionals at leading institutions. You’ll now have access to the full library of medical newspapers, books, peer-reviewed journals, and educational materials produced by SLACK Incorporated.
Once you’re done reading the latest news, studies, and clinical trials, the Healio.com Education Lab will allow you to participate in CME and other educational activities online, so you can fulfill your education requirements. Healio.com users will also have access to SLACK’s reference series, Curbside Consultations, which is renowned for answering the compelling questions that physicians face in practice and provides detailed answers that physicians, nurses, and other health care personnel can reference easily for their patients.
You’ll be able to register your preferences in all of the topics that you want to know about, and the site will deliver material directly to you through personally selected newswires and preferences. If you’re an orthopedic surgeon whose practice is based on performing joint reconstruction, you can personalize your content delivery to receive the latest headlines on procedures and research in your field. By delivering content that is most meaningful to you, you’ll have the resources you need to be able to choose when, and if, to put your knowledge into practice.
