Social network for heart failure community debuts

Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation has created Together in HF , a social network for members of the heart failure community.

Members can access HF information and other resources from leading patient and caregiver advocacy groups as well as professional medical associations.

“Our commitment to patients goes far beyond medicine, and we are proud to help launch this new, innovative social network for heart failure patients and their loved ones,” said Fabrice Chouraqui, president of Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation. “Together in HF is a collective effort that brings together the expertise and resources of many organizations with a special focus on the unique social and emotional needs of people who are living with heart failure.”

Together in HF creates a “consistent support system that allows patients and caregivers to seek the information and resources valuable to them, when they need it,” the company said.
