Bioventus Launches New Website for EXOGEN®
DURHAM, NC– January 25, 2018 – Bioventus, a global leader in orthobiologics, today has launched a new version of EXOGEN.com, the product website for its EXOGEN Ultrasound Bone Healing System. EXOGEN uses safe, effective low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) to help stimulate the body’s natural bone healing process. EXOGEN.com has a new look and feel which is designed to be more appealing to both patients and clinicians.
“EXOGEN.com has a number of features added to improve the experience of clinicians that visit the site and to facilitate a more meaningful patient experience,” said Dave Varner, Vice President, Global Marketing, Bioventus. “Specifically, patients will find a new bone healing discussion guide and patient success stories.”
Patients visiting EXOGEN.com can also access a complete portfolio of support materials that empower them to learn and connect with their therapy. An extension of this connection is provided by the EXOGEN Connects app, available to all patients to support compliance with the therapy by enabling synchronization with personal calendars.
“Clinicians can expect an improved experience at EXOGEN.com which includes expanded information and understanding of clinical conditions that benefit from use of EXOGEN by viewing our recent case studies on the metatarsal, tibia, and femur,” added Varner. “We also have links to top peer reviewed journal articles providing in-depth review of clinical efficacy and patient outcomes.”
Because of varying indications and languages, EXOGEN.com has always had country specific pages and the initial launch of the updated website includes the US, the UK/Ireland as well as Canada (English and French). The updated EXOGEN sites for Australia/New Zealand, Germany, Poland, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and Finland, will go live later in Q1 2018.
