MALVERN Pa., (July 11, 2022) — As healthcare professionals across the podiatry community manage an ever-changing and complex field, HMP Global, the leading healthcare event and education company, today announced the launch of two value-added offerings, PodiatrySource and the Podiatry Learning Network.
The Podiatry Learning Network serves as the premier digital hub for podiatrists and offers direct access to clinically relevant news and information, expert perspectives, and continuing education. The network joins HMP Global’s portfolio of well-respected learning platforms dedicated to serving as online information hubs, and is a singular destination offering practical, relevant content and education guided by podiatry professionals.
Visitors to the new network can create a customized experience, selecting topic preferences most pertinent to them; receive regular e-mail updates with breaking news and carefully created content; grow professionally with the network’s repository of education; and connect with other podiatry colleagues around the world through the platform’s networking options.
“With the creation of the Podiatry Learning Network, HMP Global is delivering a single, definitive resource that podiatry professionals can rely upon to access important clinical knowledge on new therapies and treatments on a broad spectrum of topics, and enjoy a highly specialized content experience,” said David DePinho, President, HMP Global. “Healthcare professionals in the podiatry field will benefit from this comprehensive resource to receive ongoing professional development and provide the highest quality of patient care.”
HMP Global is also launching PodiatrySource, a one-stop resource with independent, clinically reviewed, and unbiased information to help clinicians make informed decisions about podiatry care products.
Powered by Podiatry Today, the award-winning, premier publication and online platform, PodiatrySource will reach buyers with the trusted information they need to act and make decisions about product selection and purchasing. It will provide 24/7 access to information on an interactive, user-friendly digital platform.
“The Podiatry Today audience is invested in providing patients optimal care and staying abreast of the latest product offerings across the field is part of how they achieve this goal,” said Jennifer Spector, DPM, FACFAS, Managing Editor of Podiatry Today, a trusted educational resource in podiatric medicine and surgery that provides engaging content to help clinicians improve patient care. “Creating PodiatrySource is a natural synergy of the education provided by Podiatry Today, with robust information about innovations provided by companies in the podiatric space.”
PodiatrySource currently highlights products focused on the office-based practitioner, and future updates will include more products and companies to best serve the full foot and ankle medical and surgical community, Spector said. PodiatrySource is open access with no subscription required for use. Industry contacts may submit product information through the website, and enhanced opportunities are available.
“PodiatrySource is designed to quickly become podiatry’s most relied upon tool to navigate the many options for products and services available to healthcare professionals in the podiatry community,” DePinho said. “It offers credible, trusted, non-biased clinically reviewed content that clinicians can use during the decision-making and purchasing processes.”
The new PodiatrySource resource guide is modeled after the highly successful WoundSource product reference guide. First published in 1998, WoundSource now includes more than 1,700 products manufactured by more than 200 wound care companies. Its digital companion, woundsource.com, includes product lists and reviews as well as articles, blogs by industry thought leaders, white papers, and other educational resources for wound care professionals.
