Combined product offering includes over 500 detailed medical animations in 28 medical specialties and 21 languages.
The leaders in patient education and medical animation, Understand.com and Blausen Medical announced their global partnership today. The two companies will combine their extensive medical content offerings, and Understand.com will serve as the sales and marketing arm for both companies.
“I have admired the quality and breadth of Blausen’s medical animations for many years,” said Darik Volpa, founder and CEO of Understand.com. “This partnership represents thousands of hours of hard work at both companies. From our new website to our new video player, this launch will position us as the number one site for customers around the world who are looking for medical education content.”
“We at Blausen are pleased to announce our partnership with Understand.com,” said Bruce Blausen, founder and CEO of Blausen Medical. “They are an incredible organization with superb sales and marketing and capabilities. Understand.com has the corporate leadership necessary to bring our collective content to the largest number of buyers. We could not be more pleased.”
Medical libraries are now offered in the following specialties:
Languages include English (US and Great Britain), French, German, Arabic, Chinese (Cantonese and Mandarin), Danish, Dutch, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Portuguese (Brazil and Portugal), Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, and Turkish.
In addition to the expanded offering, individual animations can be licensed, and customers can create their own patient education libraries based on their specific practice needs.
Founded in 2003, Understand.com® is a global medical education company that has educated over 10,000,000 patients worldwide. Their unparalleled 3D medical animations are at the core of the patient learning experience. Their content clearly explains complex MOAs, disease pathologies, surgical techniques and procedures, as well as treatment methods for hundreds of medical topics.
Understand.com recognizes the huge gap in communication between doctors and patients. Doctors are frequently overloaded with patients, and may lack the time or skills to effectively communicate the complexity of a medical condition or procedure to their patients. Consultations can leave patients confused, frustrated, and unable to get the information they need to be active participants in their own medical care. Understand.com viewed this challenge as an opportunity to empower doctors and educate patients by providing high-quality, informative patient education content.
