Alliance Health Networks Migrates Diabetic Connect to Its New Social Networking Platform Bringing New Features and Enhance

SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Alliance Health Networks has moved Diabetic Connect onto its new advanced social networking platform where Alliance Health’s newer properties like Sleep Connect, Health Exchange, Arthritis Connect and several other health-focused social networking sites now operate.

DiabeticConnect.com is an online social network that connects and empowers people living with diabetes. People form strong relationships, bound by the common thread of diabetes as they participate in highly engaged conversations, learn how others cope with the disease, share treatments, read and post product recommendations.

Diabetic Connect is the largest, fastest growing social networking site for people touched by diabetes with more than 150,000 registered members hailing from each U.S. state and over 30 different countries. According to Compete, a Web analytics company, Diabetic Connect’s monthly traffic now consistently exceeds 1 million unique visitors.

The enhanced and updated version of DiabeticConnect.com includes doctor-approved reference content and interactive tools powered by Healthwise, a provider of quality health content for consumers. Alliance Health’s new social media platform also offers Facebook-like advanced activity feeds of friends, experts and favorites contained in a user’s profile. Also included are advanced social networking features like in-line commenting, rating and editing.

“DiabeticConnect.com is the largest social network devoted to an ever-growing important national and global health condition – diabetes,” said Alliance Health Networks CEO Stead Burwell. “With the advanced social networking tools our new platform now offers, we provide a unique destination that connects diverse patients, caregivers and interested providers all focused on diabetes. Community members consult with, support and learn from one another on DiabeticConnect.com.”

Diabetic Connect provides registered members the ability to direct message and virtually discuss topics about which they require help or can give support. It also provides recipes, fitness tips, news articles and information from condition experts and medical practitioners. While the content is important, it’s the sharing of a story, the discovery of a new treatment and the relationships formed between members that make DiabeticConnect.com unique and powerful.

Improved navigation, search functionality, a health symptom checker and more user control options are also included in the site upgrade launched in March. An interactive diagram of new features and functionality is included online at www.DiabeticConnect.com/whats-new.

“Diabetic Connect helps me learn and share the best information with other diabetics, their friends and families,” said Diabetic Connect Diabetic Advocate, Amy Tenderich, owner of the award-winning blog, DiabetesMine.com. “The new enhancements make the site an even more powerful tool. It’s even easier to access and share information which helps us achieve better health outcomes.”

With a mission to create social health networks that connect people to support communities, valuable services and product insights for a number of different health conditions, Alliance Health proudly owns and manages Diabetic Connect and several other condition-focused social health networks.
