OMNI-Connect Gets National Recognition as Valuable Social Media Solution in Medicine

Fort Worth TX/Sun Valley ID – OMNI Health Media announces national recognition of its online support communities, TheGIConnection,TheRAConnection, and Cancer Connect, as valuable resources for both consumers and healthcare providers seeking safe and validated social media solutions in medicine.

OMNI-Connect continues to be nationally recognized as a validated social media solution that meets the needs of patients and caregivers as well as hospitals and clinics. The latest national coverage of OMNI-Connect can be found in Gastroenterology & Endoscopy News, discussing the launch of the most recent OMNI-Connect community for gastroenterology patients and clinics called TheGIConnection. TheGIConnection is an online support community providing information, inspiration, and support for individuals with conditions affecting the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. As part of the OMNI-Connect platform, TheGIConnection not only meets the needs of gastroenterology patients and caregivers but also provides clinics and hospitals with a safe and secure social media solution.

As patients with complex diseases increasingly use social media to connect with and support one another, as well as to share information, the demand for trusted, secure online communities is growing. Unlike other social media platforms, the OMNI-Connect platform allows individuals to interact in a confidential, safe, and secure environment. The OMNI-Connect application can be “tailored” to any disease state allowing hospitals and clinics to provide 24/7 support for their patients, create community, and extend their brand for patients, caregivers, and their family. OMNI-Connect is now available for the following disease states.

  • Cancer Connectused by leading cancer centers and clinics including Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, Roswell Park Cancer Institute, The Ohio State James Cancer Institute, UCSF, the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, TexasCancerConnect, and other organizations including advocacy groups.
  • TheRAConnection – available for Rheumatology Clinics
