BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J., Feb. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – Today, the Access Group — a leading health care communications network — is proud to announce the launch of Access Alliance. Dedicated to keeping labor union members and their health care providers in the know, Access Alliance is focused on communicating the various health conditions that affect those populations. The formation of Access Alliance marks the 8th individual business entity to be part of the Access Group family, which further expands the scope of services that the firm provides to the pharmaceutical industry.
“We very much appreciate the opportunity to partner with our labor union allies to further advance the timely and relevant communication of health care information that matters to their members and families,” said Dave Gagliano, President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Access Group. “Access Alliance offers labor unions distinctive courses of action to inform and educate their members–and the physicians who care for them–in this dynamically changing environment.”
Access Alliance has extensive expertise in the area of physician outreach, enabling the company to effectively communicate with providers to promote appropriate health care for labor union members.
