ReachMD helps healthcare professionals discover, participate in, and share medical education and clinical information through on demand programming and 24/7 streaming broadcasts. Its content is offered on air, online, and via mobile apps and includes video, audio, slides, and text-based formats. The ReachMD distribution network includes websites and mobile apps of ReachMD, iHeartRadio, TuneIn, Stitcher, iTunes, and more. ReachMD has produced more than 10,000 medical broadcasts featuring clinical research, medical practice, disease management, and patient care strategies.

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] In 2014 ReachMD joined Tunein's platform, and in 2015 it joined Stitcher's platform (both of which are digital radio stations).


ReachMD offers pre-recorded programs in three categories: (1) continuing medical education (CME) content, which offers credit to participating healthcare professionals; (2) editorial content, which is curated by ReachMD's editors and medical staff; and (3) industry features, which are developed by enterprises in the life sciences industry.

ReachMD has more than 60 named series of pre-recorded programs (such as Lipid Luminations and Diabetes Discourse). The channel's original content is produced in the ReachMD headquarters in Fort Washington, PA, or is captured during live medical meetings nationwide.


ReachMD emphasizes that the channel is made exclusively for medical professionals and not consumers. While website registration is not required to access content, if users register they receive customized content that matches their profession and specialty. Website registration is required to obtain CME or CE credits.
