UK-based medical professionals’ network doctors.net.uk has partnered with coliquio, a firm which runs online physician communities for the German speaking countries of Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
coliquio was founded in 2007 with the aim of enhancing the exchange of experience and medical knowledge among German-speaking doctors. Its community has more than 41,000 members from the three countries.
Doctors.net.uk has a membership comprising more than 180,000 registered UK doctors and is used each week by more than 50,000. The alliance follows agreements Doctors.net.uk has with similar communities in France
, Portugal and Sweden.
Martin Drees, founder and CEO of coliquio, comments: ‘The partnership with Doctors.net.uk is a big step forward in enabling physicians to exchange professional information and expertise. Operating at a European level gives us the opportunity to create the most comprehensive online collection of professional medical resources and learning materials.’
Doctors.net.uk CEO Richard Adams says the relationship will not only provide benefit for community members, but will also enable pharma brands and healthcare communicators to liaise with doctors across a wider geography.
