MDLinx Strikes Gold, Judged Best Healthcare Professional Media Brand at MM&M 
Awards 
Gold Award Recognizes Excellence From Web Property Directed at Health
Care Professionals 
WASHINGTON, DC  -- (Marketwired) -- 10/03/13 --  At last night's MM&M
Awards, MDLinx (www.mdlinx.com), a part of M3 group, walked away the
winner in one of healthcare marketing's most acclaimed and respected
competitions. 
"We are thrilled to receive such a prestigious award where MDLinx was
judged, by top industry leaders, to be the best HCP Media Brand. What
makes this win even more gratifying is that this award spans both
online and offline entries, and MDLinx still came out on top,"
comments Aki Tomaru, CEO of M3 USA. "I can't say enough about the
vision and hard work of MDLinx team, who is relentlessly focused on
providing the most valuable information to HCPs, in a thoroughly
engaging format, helping them make the most informed decisions for
their patients."  
Following two comprehensive rounds of scoring by more than 100
independent industry judges, MDLinx was judged to be the best.  
One judge praised MDLinx's "compelling use of technology and human
touch to present relevant information." Another called it
"comprehensive, well-built and informed by its users."  
Speed and breadth of coverage impressed judges. MDLinx's physician
editors sort, rank and summarize each article published in more than
2,000 medical journals and the popular press within 24 hours. 
Articles are sorted into 35 specialties and 800 subspecialties.
Top-ranked articles are listed in e-newsletters that can be tailored
to specialties and subspecialties. 
Ads and sponsored content are highly targeted. Users on an ad
client's target list can engage with that client's content, see their
sales rep's photo and request further engagement. 
"A well-executed product that successfully meets the needs of doctors
and sponsors," said a third judge. 
And it's not just the industry judges who know the increasing value
of MDLinx to HCPs. US physician membership increased 22% over the
last year, while global physician subscribers top 898,000. More than
13 million monthly e-newsletters are sent to all US HCP subscribers. 
Members of MDLinx and its sibling SmartestDoc include more than 80%
of oncologists, endocrinologists and rheumatologists, and about one
in three AMA physicians.  
Per comScore, it is the number-one specialty site, the fastest
growing site, and number-two primary care site. 
The black tie MM&M Award dinner and ceremony was held at Cipriani
42nd Street in New York on October 2, 2013.
