StatusPraesens. Company Profile
StatusPraesens, est. 2007, is a leading provider of comprehensive evidence-based knowledge and hands-on skills to pediatric and reproductive healthcare professionals in Russia and other post-Soviet markets, with exclusive content and creative formatting.
Historically, the company has grown around StatusPraesens Journal, a medical publication that successfully forked into more specialized StatusPraesens Gynecology, Obstetrics and Childless Marriage Journal in 2009 and StatusPraesens Pediatrics and Neonatology in 2017. According to Proxima Research consistently rating StatusPraesens as Russia’s most read medical journal for many years, and Ipsos/Comcon putting us firmly at No 1 position on many indicators among Russia’s obstetrics and gynecology publications, our readership has appreciated this effort.
Which would be hard to achieve without a personal contribution of Dr. Viktor E. Radzinsky (Corresponding Member, Russian Academy of Sciences), the journal’s Women’s Health Science Editor and the Editor-in-Chief of our book publishing arm. Dr. Radzinsky is the StatusPraesens founding father and remains the true guardian of its innovative spirit.
StatusPraesens plays a unique role as a medical information provider, identifying a holistic knowledge and skills needs profile of modern doctors, relentlessly selecting evidence-based data and reputable controversies for their critical review, and, most importantly, using our in-house editorial and research resources to present healthcare professionals with a comprehensive and systematic advancement toolkit. Every story and every message comes through a platform and format best positioned to reach the specific target audience and drive their clinical performance.
This is what we refer to as StatusPraesens Knowledge Field, from books and brochures to in-person conference events to webinars to hands-on thematic schools. With such extraordinarily engaged audiences as ours, there is no surprise most of our events are fully- and overbooked long in advance, with – importantly – equal interest in online, in-person, and hybrid formats.
The core StatusPraesens conference cycle includes annual polythematic (obstetrics, gynecology, neonatal and pediatric medicine) congresses Perinatal Medicine in St. Petersburg (February), Spring Controversies in Moscow (April), and Versions and Controversies in Sochi (September), plus biannual congresses in Novosibirsk, Ekaterinburg, and Kazan. Within each event, we take care to balance the debate space between such understandably high-profile issues as breast, cervix, early pregnancy, or extragenital obstetric disorders, and all-time favorites: ultrasound, cancer, endocrinology, legal issues, and medical governance. Anti-ageing has become a special focus too.
A highlight of every September congress is Russia’s Reproductive Tomorrow Award. With a dozen important nominations, the award ceremony rightly passes the limelight to those who demonstrate exceptional commitment to their patients, their profession, and the cause of sharing medical knowledge with younger colleagues.
Our specialized pediatric conference brand is FLORES VITAE, with three events taking place in Moscow and Sochi every year, from polythematic Controversies in Pediatrics and Neonatal Medicine to more segmented Polyclinic Pediatrics to highly specialized and hugely popular Difficult Diagnosis Case Report Schools for neonatal and pediatric professionals.
StatusPraesens Publishers’ bestselling books – The Obstetrics Aggression, Essays in Endocrine Gynecology, Predictive Obstetrics, Cervix Guide and Atlas, Perineology: Aesthetic Gynecology, Anemias and Reproductive Health, Pregnancy and Chronic Renal Disease, and The Preterm Baby – are recognized as de facto must-reads for today’s generation of doctors. Every StatusPraesens book is an example of our editorial and production staff bringing together expert-level precision of evidence with a well-written and compelling message, delivered right on the doctor’s workplace.
One format we are especially proud of is the “Volunteer Weekends Series for Obstetrics and Gynecology.” It is a sad reality that extremely long distances, lingering transportation deficits, patchy business tourism infrastructure, and above all intensive workload severely limit many Russian provincial doctors’ exposure to large national congress activity. We have found a way to bring key opinion leaders from best universities and research clinics to the most faraway places, filling weekends with brilliant lectures and hard-hitting Q&A sessions that effectively bridge the live communication gap. Over 53,000 avid participants over a decade-long history of nearly 200 Volunteer Weekends are a living proof that doctors are absolutely committed to spend weekends learning things and networking, if only they get a chance.
We also record and edit our own video content, to offer our audiences a great choice of live streams, webinars, and archived lectures on an everyday basis.
SPNavigator is our in-house mobile app, a two-in-one with the new electronic StatusPraesens Journal and an advanced search engine of latest clinical guidelines. To the core of professional textual and visual publications, we add the checklists, calculators, patient awareness leaflets and forms that obstetricians, gynecologists, neonatologists, and pediatricians need right on their desktop. The app, currently with over 40,000 active users, has an easy-to-use integrated questionnaire and feedback functionality.
In our region, StatusPraesens is the only professional media organization targeted on a specific healthcare audience. We professionally organize major conferences and exhibitions; we do our own research, editing, publishing, and IT development; we run an in-house design bureau, an AV studio, and a call center. We constantly improve the already extensive ways and means to always be in touch with our target audience’s needs.
We at StatusPraesens believe in the power of quality content, well packaged, and neatly delivered. Making sure doctors are more interested in what they do, we make sure they get better at what they do. Taking care about doctors, we take care about their patients.
