NeurologyLive, a platform for healthcare specialists, has added The Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers (CMSC) to its Strategic Alliance Partnership program that works to share insights and experiences to benefit people with multiple sclerosis (MS) and their families.

A collaborative mix of neurological centers, networks, and societies, the NeurologyLive program states that its purpose is to bring “the latest in research and practice” to the doctors, nurses, and others treating those with neurological disorders.

“We are proud to be working with the CMSC. CMSC works to improve the lives of all who have been affected by MS by bringing together a society of MS medical professionals,” Mike Hennessy Jr., president and chief executive officer of MJH Life Sciences, parent company of NeurologyLive, said in a press release.

Established in 1986, CMSC works to advance professional education and training in the MS field using a multi-disciplinary team approach, fueling knowledge and speeding the implementation of better management therapies and healthcare policies.

The organization consists of more than 250 centers across the United States and Canada, representing over 12,000 healthcare professionals worldwide who provide care for more than a quarter million MS patients and their families.

NeurologyLive uses its platform to bring quality and relevant information to those working in diseases like MS, helping them to give the best patient care possible. It offers these health professionals a print and digital media platform that includes news and insights directly from top medical conferences, researchers, institutes and care centers.

Joining the CMCS in this partnership are The Cleveland Clinic, the Mayo Clinic, NYC Langone Health, Montefiore Medical Center, the Miller School of Medicine at the University of Miami, and the Vickie and Jack Farber Institute for Neuroscience at Jefferson Health.

The Dravet Syndrome Foundation is also a member.

“NeurologyLive embraces a model of education and outreach that is consistent with the mission of the CMSC: a team approach,” said June Halper, master of science in nursing (MSN), board certified advanced practice nurse (APN-C), and chief executive officer of CMSC.

“The target audience includes a constellation of professionals and supportive organizations allowing the CMSC’s message to be heard loud and clear. We are grateful for this partnership,” Halper added.

The Strategic Alliance Partnership program is focused on building a community of health plans, advocacy groups, medical associations, and medical institutions that collaborate in an open exchange of information, with a shared goal of improving patient care and better helping patients and their families.

Apart from MS, NeurologyLive also works with professionals in neurological diseases that include Alzheimer’s, epilepsy, Parkinson’s, neuromuscular disorders, migraine, and stroke.
