Global Healthcare Network Launched for Healthcare Professionals

An Innovative Social Media Tool for Growing Global Healthcare Community

DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES--(Marketwire - Oct. 6, 2010) - The recent re-launch of a global networking web-site has attracted thousands of healthcare industry affiliated professionals keen to share information on-line. The website, www.GlobalHealthcareNetwork.com was revamped last month to help facilitate (showcase/broadcast) research, provide business & networking opportunities and act as an easily accessible forum for healthcare issues and challenges (around the world to be discussed) The site is also proving popular as an informal tool that allows members to socialise with their healthcare peers in other countries.

"This is the age of social networking and a great deal of information is now being traded (exchanged) on-line using this method," said Dr. Prem Jagyasi, renowned global healthcare consultant and founder of the Global Healthcare Network. "There are many general purpose social networking sites with millions of users, but we were encouraged by healthcare professionals across the world to create a site designed especially with the sector in mind," he added.

The www.GlobalHealthcareNetwork.com is unique in that it has customised settings so that healthcare professionals can participate in specific activities. Healthcare professionals using the site can join various special interest groups in the sector; such as Healthcare Management, Healthcare Marketing, Healthcare Insurance, Pharmaceutical, Medical Equipment, Healthcare Finance, Healthcare Journalist and, Medical Tourism (Health Tourism / Healthcare Travel / Medical Travel), amongst others.

The site also aggregates the latest news from around the world to provide easy access of vital healthcare information at one place, as well as offering all the standard networking benefits that include connections, blogging, forum discussions, media uploads and event updates. The network is integrated with Facebook and Twitter so members can post to other networking sites from Global Healthcare Network. The Global Healthcare Network also has group/fan pages on LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter, with more than 1750 members actively communicating.

Dr. Jagyasi believes that the advantage of the Global Healthcare Network is that it allows for health professionals to share information easily, which in turn breaks down barriers and improves cooperation between healthcare providers. "Even the small links that are established through purely social interaction can develop into bigger links over time, as channels of communication become progressively embedded," he said. "We can see from the buzz and chatter happening on the site that connections are being made that should lead to the forging of relationships that can only benefit healthcare in the future. I believe that this site will act as an important adjunct to the continued growth of the sector worldwide," he added. 

The site provides us with updated information about all upcoming healthcare events worldwide at one place.

Dr Prem Jagyasi, recently presented the topic ' Social Media Marketing' at the World Medical Tourism and Global Healthcare Association 2010 in Los Angeles, USA.
