Department of Health partners with Medscape to enhance public Health Alert System
The Pennsylvania Department of Health today announced that a new partnership with Medscape will enhance communication efforts of urgent public health messages to Pennsylvania’s health care professionals.
Right now, the department delivers critical health information through health alerts sent to state and local public health agencies, healthcare providers, hospitals and emergency management officials, as part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s national HAN system.
Information is distributed through the HAN system to members that subscribe with the department. Medscape will now distribute the information to their members as well, to help expand the reach within the healthcare community.
