JHI focuses intensely on identifying and fulfilling the latest information needs of the healthcare professionals we serve to assure that we continue to strengthen our leadership position as a respected provider of healthcare information. We are passionate about helping physicians, pharmacists, nurses and eye care professionals maximize their performance and improve the quality of patient care. We do this by providing critical data, communications and education that deliver the right information at the right time and in the right format. At the core of JHI's success is our excellent professional staff. We highly value our people and take great pride in our commitment to recruit, train and retain the best talent in the industry.
These are challenging and exciting times for healthcare in the United States and JHI's strategy is informed by the major trends. The aging of our population is driving the development of treatments for illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis and macular degeneration. Many of these diseases are being treated with new complicated therapies which require the attention of physician specialists like oncologists, hematologists, cardiologists, nephrologists and ophthalmologists. These trends are accelerating the need for timely information in specialty areas, demanding sophisticated content that is best delivered in highly scientific venues which encourage the free exchange of scientific information and discussion among colleagues.
Physicians are also demanding the transition of information products from traditional print and live formats such as journals, databases and symposia to more cutting edge and on-demand internet-based formats. We are dedicated to delivering valuable content via multiple traditional and new electronic channels to help healthcare professionals make better decisions faster.
JHI is uniquely positioned to design leading solutions to these changing information needs due to our frequent interactions with healthcare professionals and our state-of-the-art internal capabilities. Our expert staff will continue to build on our proud heritage as a learning organization that evolves with changing times.
