BOSTON, April 2, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- IC Sciences Corporation announced today the launch of the company's alliance membership program, ICS Alliance (http://www.icsciencesalliance.com). During the past two years, IC Sciences has been developing components for the newly launched membership program, such as scientific tools, industry products, and market case studies covering healthcare informatics instruments for professional, consumer, and therapeutics medical market sectors. The Alliance program serves as a collaborative nexus of clinicians, healthcare executives, allied professionals, researchers, developers, and other users of these instruments.
Alliance members receive value through a range of program offerings, consisting of a leadership network of experts (Event Series), strategic market analysis and research reports, digital intelligence briefings, and a members-only virtual portal community. Peter M. Nicholas Jr., Founder and Chief Executive Officer of IC Sciences, remarked, "We envision the ICS Alliance as a 'central exchange station' of multi-perspective and multi-sector ideas, tools, practices, and contacts concerning healthcare informatics. We are pleased to be in our second year of the Event Series, which has hosted 18 events and has featured guest hosts such as Clayton Christensen of Harvard Business School, Jonathan Bush of AthenaHealth, and Charlie Baker of Harvard Pilgrim Health. We look forward to inviting the nation's e-health executives, clinicians, and medical informatics leaders to join our membership in 2008 and beyond."
Alliance members, who currently include Revolution Health, AthenaHealth, PatientsLikeMe, and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts, joined the program because of a collective interest in understanding this rapidly evolving field, as well as how new sciences and technologies are improving the effectiveness, value, and experience of healthcare. These informatics instruments are used by clinicians, patients, consumers, payers, and therapeutics manufacturers in myriad contexts and applications, including patient engagement, collective intelligence among clinician or patient peers, clinical performance management, and therapeutic product support.
