VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/18/13 -- LX Ventures Inc. (TSX VENTURE: LXV) ("LXV" or the "Company") and Sosido Networks Inc. ("Sosido") are pleased to announce that Sosido has signed a customer agreement with the Canadian Association of Pharmacy in Oncology ("CAPhO"). CAPhO is the national forum for oncology pharmacy practitioners and other healthcare professionals interested in oncology pharmacy. CAPhO promotes the practice of oncology pharmacy in Canada by conducting educational events, maintaining appropriate professional practice standards, facilitating communication between oncology pharmacists and other interested health professionals, and advocating for oncology pharmacy as an area of specialty practice.
Through the Sosido network CAPhO members will be provided a new online and mobile platform to receive a live stream of new abstracts from their chosen journal feeds or knowledge sources, instant updates on new publications by CAPhO members and a forum for discussing practice-related issues.
CAPhO is the second association to launch on Sosido, joining founding association partner Canadian Blood and Marrow Transplant Group (CBMTG). The expansion marks an important milestone in developing Sosido's vision as a platform for creating community and sharing knowledge across association and disciplinary silos. Additional Canadian oncology associations are scheduled to join the network in the coming weeks.
Sosido continues to enjoy rapid cross-association growth. In a recent survey of its users, 91% of respondents said they would recommend Sosido to a colleague in another association.
"We are very excited that CAPhO has chosen the Sosido solution. With each new customer the market is validating the exceptional value that Sosido brings medical associations in sharing up-to-date medical practice information," said Mike Edwards, CEO of LX Ventures.
Tanis Steward, Founder and CEO of Sosido, said, "There's a tremendous amount of knowledge and expertise in the Canadian oncology pharmacy community, and we're delighted that Sosido can provide an innovative way for that knowledge to be shared."
