ReachMD is a multi-outlet healthcare programming source developed for medical professionals across multiple disciplines and specialties. ReachMD's Internet Radio channel broadcasts content on ReachMD (streaming website and mobile apps), iHeartRadio (streaming website, mobile app, and auto dashboards), and through podcasts on iTunes.

ReachMD launched on 26 March 2007 and was originally broadcast on XM Satellite radio, brought to XM Satellite in cooperation with Premiere Networks. On December 21, 2011, ReachMD was acquired by US HealthConnect Inc.[1] with the intent to become an Internet Radio broadcaster. Effective October 18, 2013, ReachMD joined Clear Channel's iHeartRadio platform and became exclusively an Internet Radio broadcaster offering its content on air, online, and on mobile devices through Internet platforms.[2]

Format[edit]

ReachMD has a series of pre-recorded programs that range from 15 minutes to 45 minutes in length. The ReachMD content wheel is a 12-hour wheel: programs air throughout a 12-hour period and then repeat over the next 12-hour period. Programs fall into three general categories of healthcare education and/or information: (1) Continuing Medical Education (CME) programs, (2) Editorial Series pograms, and (3) Medical Industry Feature programs. The channel's original content is produced in the ReachMD headquarters in Fort Washington, PA, and is broadcast on ReachMD.com, ReachMD MedicalRadio App, ReachMD CME App, iHeartRadio.com, and iHeartRadio App. Podcast downloads also are available on ReachMD and iHeartRadio websites and mobile apps, as well as on iTunes.

Disclaimer[edit]

ReachMD emphasizes that the channel is made exclusively for medical professionals and not consumers. The channel runs regular disclaimers between programs reiterating this and instructs any consumers listening to go elsewhere for their information (or, if they choose to listen to ReachMD, to not rely on ReachMD programming as medical advice or allow ReachMD programming to replace any relationship with a qualified medical professional). The channel also requires a user to enter their medical profession information when registering an account on its website.
