US-based health information services provider WebMD Health Corp., an Internet Brands company, has acquired French medical news, information and education platform JIM.fr, the company said.

The acquisition combines the core competencies of JIM.fr with that of Medscape, WebMD's flagship global brand for healthcare professionals.

Medscape and its affiliate network of platforms currently reach over 5m physicians worldwide with clinical news, health information and continuing medical education.

With the addition of JIM.fr, Medscape deepens its commitment to French and French-speaking HCPs.

As a medical news site in France, JIM.fr engages hundreds of thousands of physicians, nurses, pharmacists and other HCPs across more than 25 specialties.

In addition to updates on the latest medical news, clinical science, and medical conference coverage, JIM.fr offers a multidisciplinary and interactive continuing education platform for the broad healthcare team.

Following closing, JIM.fr will continue to operate as an independent subsidiary of Medscape as the companies look to build on and integrate products, platforms, and services.

The terms of the acquisition are not being disclosed.
