Video Complements Online Discussions of Late-Breaking Medical News

Through the partnership, The Doctor's Channel, described as an "educational YouTube for doctors" by CNBC, will provide Ozmosis with two-minute educational videos covering practice management and clinical issues across more than 35 medical specialties. Since physicians learn best by interacting with each other, Ozmosis, in turn, will provide Doctor's Channel members with the online tools to discuss each video and share related experiences through "physicians only" forums.

"The Doctor's Channel is continually seeking like-minded organizations that share its goal of offering physicians essential, bite-sized nuggets of visual information that can be viewed on demand and at their convenience," said The Doctor's Channel President David Best, M.D., MBA. "By partnering with Ozmosis, the Doctor's Channel can now support an even broader network of physicians in learning from each other. Fast."

The Doctor's Channel also serves as the official video content provider for Doctor's Digest and VerusMed (formerly known as FaxWatch).

The Doctor's Channel will give physicians registered with Ozmosis the opportunity to access content from the channel's extensive video library, which features medical news vignettes and analyses of major medical issues.

"Because Ozmosis is not an anonymous site, physicians can quickly identify each other and therefore rely on the information being exchanged," says Joel Selzer, co-founder of Ozmosis. "Ozmosis enables physicians to learn from each other and now, with The Doctor's Channel videos, physicians on Ozmosis can access a new level of educational content, as they debate and discuss cutting-edge medical topics with their peers."

Recently, Ozmosis hosted a Doctors Channel video on the influenza surveillance report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The video expanded and illuminated the Ozmosis physician discussion on the current status of the flu epidemic. By combining the video insights offered through The Doctors Channel with the broad experiences and commentary of Ozmosis community members, physicians had speedy access to timely, accurate and reliable medical information.

Both sites deliver e-mail alerts on the posting of new videos, enable members to subscribe to video series and The Doctors Channel can even route content to iPods or portable media players. Physicians can also join special interest groups, send and receive personalized messages, and use both sites to store favorite medical videos.

On Ozmosis, physicians can bookmark and post content from anywhere on the Web or submit their own questions or clinical cases. When physicians log in to Ozmosis, they immediately spot the most important physician insights, including videos from The Doctors Channel, clinical updates from colleagues, and community led discussions. They are also able to filter and search through the Ozmosis knowledge repository or create personalized alerts on critical medical issues and topics.
