eHealth Radio, produced by Community Health Network, is an Internet radio show featuring regular streaming segments about timely healthcare topics and medical news. The show's guests are Community Health Network physicians, clinicians and administrators who are providing exceptional care for patients with chronic health conditions and complex diseases. eHealthRadio is designed to help the healthcare consumer understand the complicated world of medical prevention, diagnosis and treatment. Clinical experts will be interviewed and discuss today's health news as well as issues related to cancer and cardiovascular care, orthopedics, behavioral health, neuroscience and more.
eHealth Radio is meant to serve consumers’ health interests not adequately served by traditional media outlets. “It's not your traditional recorded audio interview,” states the show's professional broadcast host Lynda de Widt, who is also PR and media relations director for Community Health Network. “This streaming Internet show is really focused on getting our physicians to explain healthcare in a simpler manner. We have some fun with our guests and really put them to work explaining disease prevention and treatment through the eyes of the patient and consumer. We also get them to open up and share what they do in their roles as caregivers and why they like what they do. It’s kind of blogtalk radio.” eHealthRadio will at times be live, will always be available for future listening, and can easily be shared via social networks.
