MedShr, The App for Doctors, has partnered with the Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF) for TCT 2018, the world’s largest and most important educational meeting specializing in interventional cardiovascular medicine. MedShr is supporting TCT 2018 by helping to connect practicing physicians, academic researchers and allied health professionals through clinical case discussion on the app.
For 30 years, TCT has been the centre of new cutting-edge educational content, showcasing the latest advances in current therapies and clinical research. The meeting offers numerous interactive and case-based learning workshops to help delegates gain new skills they can apply immediately in their daily practice. MedShr gives delegates the opportunity to stay connected after the event and discuss techniques learned at the meeting or best practice relating to their own clinical cases, to help improve care for their patients.
Many doctors today are sharing clinical cases via Twitter, Facebook or WhatsApp. While social media is a convenient channel, it breaches patient privacy and confidentiality regulations. MedShr is a private and professional network for verified medical professionals. It allows doctors, nurses and healthcare professionals to share knowledge in a safe, HIPAA and GMC compliant way.
To support and encourage medical education across the globe, MedShr is running three case competitions for TCT 2018 delegates. The best clinical case presentation and discussion will be announced at the conference, and the winner will receive a free subscription to TCTMD Gold, a tablet or a GoPro.
MedShr has previously partnered with the Cardiovascular Research Foundation on the Structural Heart Disease Summit 2018 and the Chronic Total Occlusion Summit 2018.
Developed by doctors, MedShr allows verified medical professionals around the world to share knowledge and learn from each other through case discussion in a compliant, private network. MedShr has over 500,000 members in 180 countries covering all clinical specialties.
MedShr is working with specialist medical societies to support learning for their members. As well as case discussion, pilot studies are in progress in the NHS and working with Health Education England.
