MANASQUAN NJ USA – August 2, 2005: With the real-time evolution of the business of healthcare, C-suite executives demand continual access to trends and tendencies impacting the industry. Already a premier advisor to decision-makers seeking strategic updates, the Healthcare Intelligence Network (HIN) now offers same-day electronic delivery of more than 20 percent of its healthcare publications to qualified customers. This enhancement complements HIN’s existing catalog of more than 500 healthcare information resources---newsletters, special reports and specialized publications---as well as a training library on CD-ROM. For more information, visit the On-Demand section of the HIN bookstore.

"Today’s technology is driving information delivery," said Melanie Matthews, executive vice president and chief executive officer of HIN. "Our intention is to reinforce HIN's value proposition by enabling our customers to get timely healthcare information from HIN in an easy-to-use, portable electronic format.”

The availability of nearly 100 publications in Adobe® Acrobat® portable document format (PDFs) marks HIN’s latest retooling of information sources to meet clients’ specific needs. Upon payment confirmation, customers who order a PDF online or by phone or fax are emailed the product the same business day. The purchase of a PDF from HIN entitles the buyer to a single-use electronic copy of the document; the buyer may also print one complete copy. HIN’s pricing strategy offers attractive discounts for multiple copies and customized licensing agreements, Matthews explained.

As an information hub, HIN offers resources to healthcare executives covering five key areas: managed care; hospital and health system management; health law and regulation; clinical care and outcomes; and the healthcare industry. Besides its electronic catalog of resources, HIN’s calendar of live audio conferences connects industry experts and executives around hot-button healthcare issues. HIN can also deliver customized information via protected Internet sites, intranets, diskettes, CD-ROM, or e-mail to one subscriber or to many. For the latest audio conferences and product updates, please visit the HIN online bookstore.
