SVM’s DVT Website Takes Bronze
The Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) Toolkit, SVM’s web-based resource for medical practices and patients, has been recognized with a Bronze Award in the Web-Based Digital Health category from the 2017 Spring Digital Health AwardsSM.
A panel of 34 experts in digital health media served as judges and selected gold, silver, bronze and merit winners from nearly 500 entries submitted in 80 categories.
"It is a well-deserved recognition of SVM members and staff who have created this exciting project," noted SVM President Heather R. Gornik, MD, FSVM. "The DVT toolkit is a unique resource that provides both patients and health care providers across all specialties with information to customize outpatient DVT treatment."
SVM developed this toolkit of information for medical offices – especially primary care offices – and for patients who want to learn more about DVT. These tools can help customize a plan to fit an individual practice and form the basis for an outpatient DVT treatment pathway or guideline.
The Deep Vein Thrombosis Toolkit was made possible in part with a grant from Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson.
The Digital Health AwardsSM honor the world's best digital health resources and are organized by the Health Information Resource CenterSM (HIRC), a national clearinghouse for professionals who work in consumer health fields. View the other Spring 2017 Winners.
