A RARE APPROACH

BioNews Services’ unique, patient-focused model developed over years of testing and evolving as a biotech and health publisher. After coming to recognize the unmet needs that rare disease patient populations face online in accessing fresh, accurate, authoritative content on a daily basis, we switched from an industry-facing model to a patient-facing approach, launching niche, disease-specific news websites that cover one rare disease. By writing news and other digital content with only the patient and caregiver in mind, we are able to meaningfully connect with online patient communities on a daily basis.

Over time, this increasingly intimate connection with patient communities has led us to become more than just a news publisher in the rare disease space. In addition to news, which is written and edited by PhD researchers and veteran journalists, our sites also include authoritative perspectives from real patients, carefully sourced and cited resource pages, and engaging social media. Now, our disease-specific websites serve as anchors for vibrant, expansive “ecospheres”, and our content a touchstone for rare disease patient communities to interact and engage with one another. These communities have become indispensable to many of the rare diseases we cover, filling the information gaps that exist online.
