Plainsboro, NJ — January 6, 2011— HCPLive.com announces the launch of the new CME portal on its website, featuring unique CME-accredited articles covering the latest clinical and industry news for a wide range of medical specialties, all available at no charge to physicians.

Published by Intellisphere, LLC, HCPLive has long been a leading source of news and information for busy health care professionals. Now, with its new CME offerings, HCPLive further meets the educational needs of physicians who want to keep abreast of the latest clinical research, technology news, and developments in clinical practice. CME-accredited articles on HCPLive are designed to enable physicians to quickly review findings from studies published in peer-reviewed clinical journals, practice guidelines and recommendations from professional medical societies and other industry groups, and other news and information that will help them provide better care to their patients.

“Physicians today are busier than ever, and must balance a demanding patient care schedule with the need to remain up to date on current research and developments in their specialty,” said Mike Hennessy, founder and CEO of MJH & Associates, which owns Intellisphere. “Our new CME offerings provide the ideal way for physicians to fulfill part of their continuing education requirements quickly and easily and at no cost.”

HCPLive is proud to be working with the Continuing Medical Education Program at the University of Cincinnati to provide this educational service to its physician audience.

We look forward to working with the editors and physician advisors to provide unique content that helps physicians meet their continuing education requirements.”

HCPLive and the University of Cincinnati have already collaborated to produce more than a dozen accredited articles, with plans to add three new articles each week, with some focusing on issues that are relevant to several medical specialties. All CME content will be available at no charge to physicians who register with HCPLive.
