APA Announces New Member Benefits
Psychiatric News
Volume 44 Number 17 page 19-19

APA has worked with the FDA, AMA, state medical societies, and liability carriers to bring a new service—the Health Care Notification Network (HCNN)—to APA members. The HCNN, which is a private network for physicians and health care professionals, provides secure online delivery of news about drug and medical device recalls and patient safety alerts, replacing the current paper process that is both slow and prone to error.

These are among other HCNN features:

Alerts sent through the HCNN are paid for by manufacturers who use the network for alert delivery.

APA members may enroll online at<www.hcnn.net/registration/apa/registration.aspx>. Additional information is available at<www.hcnn.net> or (866) 925-5155.


APA members are eligible for a personal Web page and directory listing on PsychSites.com

PsychSites.com is a starting place for members who have no Internet presence and provides increased visibility and links for members who already have Web sites.

Personal pages can be edited online and include online technical support. The page can include a 250-word profile, titles, office contact information, up to seven hyperlinks to other Web sites, and a photo. Participating members will be included in a database of mental health professionals that is searchable by location, specialty, and more than 150 mental health subspecialties.

To obtain more information or an access code to create a personal page, go to<www.psych.org/Resources/Membership/MemberOnlyBenefitsServices.aspx>.
