Introducing the New AHC Media.com: We Hope You'll Make It a Habit
January 8th, 2015
We’ve been the best-kept secret in medical publishing for far too long, so we’re very pleased to be launching our new website, a site that replaces our old school shopping-cart site with lashings of content aimed directly at you, our audience of doctors, nurses and other allied health professionals.
Now it’s possible for everyone to see the wide spectrum of content that we’ve been working on since AHC Media’s birth 40 years ago. We publish 22 monthly publications, one that’s published every other week, one that comes out twice a month, and another that comes out every other month. There is a lot of free content on our new site and some is behind a pay wall.
AHC Media specializes in medical content for the Emergency, Clinical, and Hospital Management markets. All but one of our publications offers continuing education for doctors or nurses or both. We’re accredited for physicians by the American Council for Continuing Medical Education, for nurses by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, and have specialty accreditations from the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American College of Emergency Physicians, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the American Osteopathic Association.
And we offer plenty of opportunities to buy subscriptions, study guides, and webinars, all of which are created and calculated to improve and save the lives of your patients.
We have blogs too, in addition to this one. Gary Evans has written about infectious disease control for decades at AHC and he posts twice weekly in HICprevent about the latest advances and sometimes retreats in that often threatening and always evolving world. We also have Hospital Report, postings that document the latest thinking about how to run your hospital not only well but in a world-class fashion.
We’ve won our share of awards in the past four decades, being recognized by the National Press Club and the Society of Professional Journalists. Our best year, actually, was last year when AHC Media won eight awards from the Specialized Information Publishers Association, recognizing the quality of our blogs, monographs and journalism the fields of pediatrics, emergency medicine, risk management, and infection control.
Awards are great when you win and not so great when you don’t, but we’ve learned that being recognized by your journalistic and medical peers for a job well done is gratifying.
Your comments are welcome. I’d like to know what you think of our new site, our products, your views on healthcare and your work. You can reach me at [email protected].
