These are excerpts from an interview with Shona Davies, MSD Sharp & Dohme GmbH, Univadis®
Univadis® is an online resource providing medical news, educational content, point-of-care tools and services to health care professionals in 17 languages, free of charge. We have approximately 1.7M registered users in over 37 countries and we have sister brands in the US (Merck MedicusTM), South Korea (MDFaculty) and elsewhere. In the last 11 years, we have grown from being a small site called My Yahoo! for Physicians, to being a truly global force in online medical information and services and we aim to be the number 1 service in every market in which we operate within the next 5 years.
To HCPs, the advantages are entirely in the value of the service that we provide them for no cost. We make it easy for HCPs to find the medical information, education and point-of-care tools that they need in their daily practice, all in one place and tailored to their own individual needs. We help them to expand their expertise and support their patients every single day. We save them the hassle of searching and verifying the quality of the information they find by bringing them unbiased content from world-leading medical publishers and providers that they trust. We save them time. For today’s busy HCP, that has an enormous value at a personal level.
