ACC, Medscape Partnership Designed to Reach Health Care Professionals on Hot CV Topics

The ACC and Medscape recently announced a new partnership that includes the creation of original content to support cardiologists, internists and other practicing physicians, and collaboration on Medscape Consult™, Medscape’s global peer-to-peer, point-of-care digital platform. In addition, a new, online co-branded Centers of Excellence, focused on the most pressing challenges in cardiology, will deliver practical, actionable insights to physicians. The first of these centers highlighting cardiovascular risk reduction is now live. A second center focused on atrial fibrillation is coming soon. “The College envisions a world where cardiovascular care and outcomes are optimized through knowledge,” said Kim A. Eagle, MD, MACC, editor-in-chief of ACC.org. “Through this partnership we can educate physicians and care team members across multiple specialties on pressing cardiovascular issues that are impacting their patients and provide them with the tools they need to enhance their patients’ care.”
