A new coalition has been formed to distribute free information and timely updates on Ebola through mobile and web-based apps to millions of Health Care Professionals (HCPs) and consumers worldwide.
The Health eVillages Collaborative Coalition will give HCPs around the world practical knowledge that can help them reassure patients, reduce some of the unwarranted panic surrounding the disease and offer clinical information on Ebola from a global health perspective. The coalition’s charter members include Health eVillages, the RFK Center, Physicians Interactive, Healthways, MedHelp, WELVU and Univadis, each of which will contribute in its area of expertise.
The Coalition provides HCPs and consumers worldwide with free information and timely updates on Ebola through mobile and web-based apps.HCPs will be able to access in one place the Coalition’s digital platforms to review news stories, peer-reviewed medical journal articles, learning modules and newsletters on the disease. It will also include links to Ebola information on The World Health Organization (WHO) and its Health InterNetwork Access to Research Initiative (HINARI); The Centers for Disease Control (CDC); The Journal of the American Medical Association; The British Medical Journal; and The Lancet.
Health eVillages provides mobile devices equipped with specialized reference and clinical decision support tools.

The Coalition is by no means closed, and is readily accepting other companies and organizations…
