WebMD Health Corp., an Internet Brands company and a leader in health information services for physicians, other healthcare professionals and consumers, announced that it has acquired JIM.fr, a leading medical news, information and education platform in France.

The acquisition combines the core competencies of JIM.fr with that of Medscape, WebMD’s flagship global brand for healthcare professionals (HCPs). Medscape and its affiliate network of platforms currently reach over 5 million physicians worldwide with clinical news, health information and continuing medical education. With the addition of JIM.fr, Medscape deepens its commitment to French and French-speaking HCPs.

“Both JIM.fr and Medscape have the trust and engagement of hundreds of thousands of healthcare professionals in France,” said Jeremy Schneider, Group General Manager, WebMD Global. “Medscape’s existing French edition, along with our robust, country-specific content, is integral to our global commitment to French-speaking health professionals. Through this transaction, we can leverage our combined assets to further strengthen Medscape’s offering for French and French-speaking professionals, while delivering innovative solutions to customers.”

As a leading medical news site in France, JIM.fr engages hundreds of thousands of physicians, nurses, pharmacists and other HCPs across more than 25 specialties. In addition to updates on the latest medical news, clinical science, and medical conference coverage, JIM.fr offers a multidisciplinary and interactive continuing education platform for the broad healthcare team.

“Today JIM.fr offers, every day, to more than 350,000 French-speaking healthcare professionals registered on its site, a complete panorama of medical and professional news in all specialties, including general medicine,” said Dr. Gilles Haroche, founder of JIM.fr. “Beyond the scientific and journalistic rigor of its articles, JIM distinguishes itself from other medical media by its often humorous tone and its original analyses of all the major issues that are shaking the medical world. We are very happy to see the quality of our work recognized by Medscape, the global medical news and point of care platform.”
