Primary care medicine remains central, though specialty coverage is now broader and more robust, covering categories such as cardiology, diabetes, geriatric medicine and more.

News is reported daily, and multimedia enhancements include contextual links to -primary source material, graphical elements, embedded video interviews, podcasts and blogs.

“We designed an article template tailored to meet online reading needs and provide readers with immediate-glance information about the source of the article and its ‘vitals',” the company said. “Additionally, we have incorporated KOL perspectives on the meaning of study findings for the way our readers practice medicine.”
