Make any program a springboard for ongoing discussion with our MEDForum online community, a full-featured threaded message board.

This communications tool gives you the ability to create a new or extend an already existing program. Your audience within the Medical Professional Community will be empowered to interact with colleagues at one central location on the web. With MEDForum, your participants can continue the exchange for weeks and months afterwards.

It's easy for users to log on to MEDForum, choose the desired topic, and review and post comments. But MEDForum is more than your ordinary bulletin board system. Participants can upload and download Word documents, PowerPoint presentations, Excel spreadsheets, photos and URLs. The result? - MEDForum becomes a valuable repository of ongoing program information or seminar follow-up information. For example, after a recent MEDPresent live conference we quickly posted web links to pertinent FDA pages referenced by speakers.

As with all our programs, we provide the format that is right for you. Choose an economical MEDForum entered through our web site, or a completely customized message board under your own logo that users access through your own web portal.

Behind the scenes, you are in control throughout. The "moderated board" option allows you to review all posts and screen them to determine if they are appropriate for your audience. In addition, all posts and uploads are recorded for future review and can be delivered to you for archiving.

Want to open up a chat room an hour a week for interactive discussion?  That's just one of the many customization features we offer.

MEDForum is a very cost-effective vehicle for extending the life of a live Internet seminar or for gathering pertinent information to enhance any program's overall results. Virtually any type of project is suitable. Prime examples include:

  • Medical educational seminars
  • Opinion leader discussions
  • Advisory board meetings
  • Training sessions
  • Product information resource or research
  • Crisis management hub
  • Patient input
  • Clinical results

Although MEDForum is a standalone product, it was designed to closely integrate with MEDPresent, Birchwood's live Internet meeting solution. For example, if you hold an on line conference series with MEDPresent, you can offer MEDForum for follow-up discussions and interaction.

But don't keep MEDForum a secret! We recommend featuring MEDForum in your announcement materials as an inducement to prospective attendees.
