The forerunner for PracticeUpdate is Elsevier's OncologySTAT, which launched in 2007 and was Elsevier's - and the industry's - first free site aimed at oncologists and supported by advertising. Today the OncologySTAT community is composed of about 65,000 healthcare practitioners (other types of physicians, nurses, healthcare workers) in the US and around the world, including more than 8,000 self-identified U.S. oncologists and hematologists. OncologySTAT's registered users will be able to transition to the oncology portal of the new PracticeUpdate to access the same content they have come to expect.
