United States. WebMD Magazine WebMD Magazine is delivered free of charge to physicians in the United States for use in their office waiting rooms and reaches consumers right before they meet with their physicians. This allows sponsors to extend their advertising reach and to deliver their message when consumers are actively engaged in the healthcare process, and allows the company to extend the WebMD brand into offline channels. It publishes eight issues per year and had a rate base, in 2013, of approximately 1.4 million copies of each issue. Professional Services The company’s Websites for healthcare professionals include Medscape and Medscape Education. During 2013, the company merged its theheart.org site into Medscape Cardiology offering. It also provides a version of each of these Websites that is modified for viewing through mobile browsers. The Medscape App is a free mobile application for physicians that provide access to articles and other resources from Medscape and CME from Medscape Education. Medscape: Medscape (www.medscape.com), the company’s primary portal for physicians and other healthcare professionals, is organized by medical specialty, with each supported specialty having its own customized content. Medscape also includes areas for nurses, pharmacists, medical students, and members interested in medical policy and business of medicine topics. Registration by users enables the company to deliver medical content targeted to their specialty and areas of interest, based on information they provide in their registration profiles. The Medscape App is a free mobile application, available on Android, Blackberry, iPhone, iPad, and Kindle Fire, for physicians and other healthcare professionals that provides registered users with access to Medscape news content and reference content, including articles and other resources; the drug reference database and drug interaction checker; clinical reference, treatment and procedure guides; and physician, pharmacy and hospital directories. The Medscape App also provides access to CME programs from Medscape Education. In addition, the Medscape App gives users offline access to reference content, treatment guides and the drug interaction checker. Continuing Medical Education (CME): Medscape Education (www.medscape.org) is a Website through which Medscape, LLC, distributes online CME and CE to physicians and other healthcare professionals. Medscape Education offers a selection of free online CME and CE activities designed to educate healthcare professionals about important diagnostic and therapeutic issues, including both original CME and CE activities that it develops as well as activities developed and accredited by third parties. Medscape Education educational activities are supported by independent educational grants provided by pharmaceutical and medical device companies, as well as foundations and government agencies. International: The company pursues opportunities to expand the reach of the Medscape brand outside the United States. Content-Sharing and Other Relationships The company works with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (or FDA) to expand consumer access to timely health information from the FDA, and to increase the FDA’s reach to physicians and healthcare professionals. Consumers: For consumers the collaboration includes an online consumer health information resource on WebMD.com (www.webmd.com/fda), through which consumers can access information on the safety of FDA-regulated products, including food, medicine and cosmetics, as well as learn how to report problems involving the safety of these products directly to the FDA. There are also content and multimedia tools on specific topics, such as allergies and asthma, children’s health, diabetes, heart health, and vitamins and supplements. FDA information is also located within WebMD’s homepage, WebMD Health News, WebMD Health Search, RSS feeds, and targeted WebMD Newsletters and Special Reports, and also included in WebMD Magazine. WebMD also provides FDA public health alerts to all WebMD registered users and site visitors that request them. Healthcare Professional
