AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- RxWiki, Inc. announced today the launch of RxWiki.com 3.0, a leading digital medication resource. The website now offers enhanced navigation, richer video integration, social media sharing and an expanded medication encyclopedia. Additionally, the enhanced crowdsourced publishing platform enables clinical pharmacists to easily create and edit RxWiki's medication encyclopedia.
"Patients deserve to know who wrote the medication information, how qualified that individual is and when it was last updated," said Donald Hackett, CEO of RxWiki. "As the IMS Institute reported recently, 'patients are turning to social media as an essential forum for obtaining and sharing health information.'"
"RxWiki exceeds these expectations by integrating the most trusted health provider, community pharmacists, into the publishing process. When the FDA issues an alert, pharmacists edit the encyclopedia within minutes, not weeks," said Hackett.
"Prescription medication, OTC products and natural medicine information needs to be easily understood by patients. With RxWiki's video library, patients can access the information they need from Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+ and YouTube" said Eric Ho, RxWiki's VP of Medication Information. "This is an unparalleled opportunity to engage patients wherever they spend their time."
More than 40 pharmacists practicing in a wide range of community and clinical settings are part of the team of RxWiki contributors today. While participation is currently on an invite-only basis, the RxWiki encyclopedia is intended for use by all pharmacists passionate about changing the world of health care.
