Wolters Kluwer, Health, a global provider of information and point of care solutions for the healthcare industry, has developed virtual conference solution alternatives to offer medical societies amid cancellations of annual meetings due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Through a wide range of virtual and digital conference capture and live stream options for events, Wolters Kluwer is mitigating the challenges associated with cancellation and helping medical societies deliver important content, proceedings and CME resources from their annual meetings to their members and clinicians.

The Wolters Kluwer solution for societies who are considering alternatives to live events include: Live Online Experience (Livestreaming), Recorded Event (Content Available OnDemand), and Hybrid Event (Live + Recorded).

A live online experience offers societies the closest replica to an in-person event as it allows subscribers to attend remotely while still benefitting from some of the networking opportunities provided by an in-person event. Wolters Kluwer’s livestreaming solution covers all aspects of live event coordination, and its platform supports video, presentations, and text chat to encourage interactivity among participants.

A recorded event offers increased flexibility. Speakers can record sessions at their convenience and subscribers can listen to the agenda items most relevant to them, anywhere and anytime. Wolters Kluwer coordinates every aspect of the content capture process to ensure that all material is captured in a manner that maximizes quality and optimizes online delivery.

The Wolters Kluwer hybrid event model offers both attendees and speakers a live online experience as well as access to the OnDemand product after the event. This solution caters to the widest range of use cases and allows speakers who might now have to cover practices the ability to record prior to the event. The final presentation can then be played at a scheduled time.

Pharmaceutical and medical device companies can communicate information regarding their products and services to attendees through virtual exhibits. Visitors to the online exhibit hall may visit a manufacturer’s booth to watch presentations about new products, read data and product specifications, and link out to the manufacturer’s home page. Wolters Kluwer can also work with exhibitors to help to ensure optimal visits to their booths.

Across solutions, Wolters Kluwer works with each prospective partner to understand their unique objectives and recommend a solution that aligns with best practices. Wolters Kluwer also creates and administers assessments that allow virtual attendees to earn CME credentials for participating, either at the meeting or session level.

Wolters Kluwer is a trusted partner to medical societies with experience managing meeting capture and distribution for hundreds of meetings, used by thousands of practitioners. Current partners include the American College of Cardiology (ACC), the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) and the American Psychiatric Association (APA).
