Colorectal Cancer Resource & Action Network (CCRAN) is pleased to announce an important partnership with iMD Health Global (iMD), a CloudMD Software & Services company focused on health education, to provide their credible colorectal cancer resources to healthcare providers and their patients on the iMD platform. This partnership provides increased access to healthcare providers and patients wanting to not only better understand colorectal cancer, but also prevention steps.
“We are excited to provide our trusted resources to providers and patients to enable a better conversation, understanding and treatment journey for patients, families and caregivers regarding colorectal cancer,” said Filomena Servidio, President & CEO, CCRAN. “We are pleased that our educational resources will now be available through iMD, improving access at the point of care across Canada.”
iMD Health is the largest digital health educational platform in Canada. iMD offers innovative technology that facilitates meaningful dialogue between healthcare professionals and patients inside the examination room, hospital bedsides, pharmacy consultations and during virtual consultations. iMD’s award winning platform enables healthcare professionals to instantly access over 110,000 educational graphics, videos and resources at the point of care, across Canada.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with CCRAN in order to provide our healthcare providers and their patients with trusted colorectal cancer resources to improve engagement and understanding” said Jared Sonnenberg, Vice President of iMD, citing the need for accurate, reliable health information, particularly given the shift toward digital tools incited by the pandemic and the use of the internet which often leads to mis-information.
Through a resource like iMD, full of user-friendly and visually appealing information, healthcare providers, their patients and families will gain a better understanding of colorectal cancer.
