Introducing THE LYNX GROUP™: A Global, Strategic Alliance Providing Pivotal and Contemporary Medical Information and Education for All Stakeholders in Healthcare

Monroe Township, NJ and Boston, MA, January 24, 2012 — A formal alliance known as The Lynx Group™ has been established between 4 privately owned medical communication companies each with a unique niche and expertise in the healthcare industry: Engage Healthcare Communications, Green Hill Healthcare Communications, Core Principle Solutions, and Center of Excellence Media.

Engage Healthcare Communications is a global medical communications company with expertise in managed markets, commercial and government payers, employers, policymakers, provider organizations, and physicians. Their publications include American Health & Drug Benefits®, Value-­Based Cancer Care®, Oncology Practice Management™, and Value-­Based Care in Rheumatology™.

“The value-­based story is one that carries across all chronic disease states and we will be expanding into other therapeutic areas in 2012 and beyond with additional publications and online resource centers, such as Value-­Based Care in Myeloma™. Through our alliance with The Lynx Group™, our goal is to extend the reach of this information and help foster the dialogue between the payer and practicing physicians which will ultimately have a positive impact on patient care,” said Nick Englezos, Owner and Publisher of Engage Healthcare Communications.

“Our goal is to provide a platform for the multidisciplinary cancer care team focusing on the relevant impact of medical information for advanced practice nurses, physician assistants, and pharmacists through The Oncology Nurse-­APN/PA®, The Oncology Pharmacist®, Journal of Oncology Navigation & Survivorship®, and Journal of Hematology Oncology Pharmacy®,” said Phil Pawelko, Vice President, Sales & Marketing of Green Hill Healthcare Communications. “With the launch of Personalized Medicine in Oncology™ (PMO) in May 2012, our goal is to sensitize practitioners to the performance realities of new diagnostic and treatment discoveries and clarify molecular profiling technology as it relates to diagnostic, prognostic, and predictive medicine.”

“As the official publication of the Global Biomarkers Consortium™ in Oncology, which we are co-­sponsoring with Center of Excellence Media, PMO will be the primary vehicle to augment the pivotal and contemporary education that will be presented at the Global Biomarkers Consortium Annual Meeting held March 9-11, 2012, in Orlando, Florida, as well as all of the educational activities for this initiative,” said Pam Rattananont Ferris, Managing Director and CEO of Core Principle Solutions. “This is just one of the many ways that the members of The Lynx Group™ are collaborating together in order to ensure that we are providing the most relevant information and education through the synergistic communication channels.”

“Through The Lynx Group™ alliance, we are able to provide medical information focused on management and treatment issues, clinical data, and patient education and navigation to each individual stakeholder in healthcare worldwide through publications, independent and certified medical education, and collaboration with patient advocacy groups,” said Brian Tyburski, President and CEO of Center of Excellence Media. “We look forward to furthering our alliance among these core groups and being able to provide the most relevant medical information for each and every healthcare stakeholder in order to improve patient care.”
