Pediatrichealthchannel.com - New Site for Parents Seeking Answers to Children's Health Questions
Date:9/10/2008

es for the last 10 years for medical specialties such as urology (urologychannel.com), neurology (neurologychannel.com), and obstetrics and gynecology (womenshealthchannel.com), and now, for the first time, is extending the time-tested "health community" platform to pediatrics. This formula includes comprehensive health and safety information that is developed and monitored by physicians and presented in language that is easy to understand, alongside interactive features that allow parents and caregivers to write stories about their experiences or communicate in forums with other parents and/or physicians.

Stanley J. Swierzewski III, M.D., the CEO and Founder of Healthcommunities.com says, "The goal of pediatrichealthchannel is to help parents by providing a comprehensive resource of trusty information. Informed parents make better partners with their child's medical team when it comes to well-child visits or when illness or injury arises. The doctor-developed information on pediatrichealthchannel is easy-to-read but covers each topic thoroughly. The interactive sections go a step beyond by exposing parents and caregivers to the experiences of others with similar medical experiences."

Dr. Swierzewski notes that part of HC's successful formula is the unique interplay between its clinical condition content and interactive content, "It can be challenging to maintain an active online health forum because the forum must have a purity of purpose to maintain the interest of participants, and of course, the interchanges have to be helpful to the participants. The forums on HC's network of http://www.healthcommunities.com/health/ [patient education websites] are effective because the doctor-presented information sets the tone for the forums. There is a separate http://forum.pediatrichea
