WASHINGTON (Jun 29, 2021) -
The American College of Cardiology (ACC) and Wondr Medical are collaborating to create a new digital channel on the Wondr Medical Platform that will amplify the global reach of ACC's educational content on a dynamic new platform. The partnership also provides access to ACC's world-class content to the existing clinical users of Wondr Medical.
"As part of the ACC's vision of a world where innovation and knowledge optimize cardiovascular care and outcomes, our partnership with Wondr is an exciting opportunity to increase access to ACC's phenomenal educational content outside of those who have traditionally accessed it," said Neal Kovach, MBA, Vice President, Global Innovation and Clinical Transformation. "By increasing the ACC's global reach we can have a more active role in providing education and support for health care communities around the world caring for underserved populations and helping to reduce the global cardiovascular disease burden. Together with Wondr, we hope to create an interactive educational community where we can share our knowledge and better serve each other and our patients."
The ACC and Wondr Medical will strive to create a digital channel that pairs ACC's expertise and knowledge in creating high-quality cardiovascular care education with Wondr's mission to democratize health care content globally through connection and social networking. ACC educational resources, such as NCD Academy, will now be available as part of Wondr's content for medical professionals around the world, free-to-air and streaming on any device. In the coming months, the ACC and Wondr partnership will focus on creating and accelerating educational access and content for underserved audiences such as women in cardiology and more.
"We started Wondr with a vision to deliver the finest medical education to medical professionals wherever they were. This partnership with ACC is the clearest possible example of that vision becoming a reality. Now our users in 175 different countries can access the ACC's resources, starting with on-demand clinical education, on the platform. This bold partnership brings new voices into the ACC family and will accelerate improvements in the delivery of cardiovascular care across the world," said Justin Davies, MD, Founder, Wondr Medical.
Available today, ACC's digital channel on Wondr features free, on-demand courses for cardiovascular professionals and primary care clinicians to explore a wide variety of expert analysis of practice-changing research, clinical guidelines and topics relevant to everyday practice while also earning Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit.
