HHS Teams with Healthline.com to Better Serve Consumers
A new collaboration between the Department of Health and Human Services and Healthline.com will greatly expand the delivery of HHS syndicated content.
“As the fastest-growing consumer health information website, we are trusted by millions of people each day and are so pleased to be partnering with HHS to make their timely and authoritative information available on Healthline.com,” said David Kopp, CEO of Healthline®.
The HHS-Healthline alliance is described in a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the two organizations that is based on “mutual recognition of the need to empower consumers with health information they can apply in daily life.” The goal is to “provide and promote HHS website content to consumers” and offer to them “high quality and timely content concerning health and public research.”
Under the terms of the MOU, Healthline has agreed to feature HHS content on its site and through email newsletters. The MOU makes it clear that the agreement involves no financial obligation for either party. The goal of the collaboration is to further the development of research, education, and outreach partnerships which in turn supports HHS's mission.
The mission of the HHS is to enhance and protect the health and well-being of all Americans. We fulfill that mission by providing for effective health and human services and fostering advances in medicine, public health, and social services.
Healthline is pledged to provide “objective, trustworthy, and accurate health information” and its editorial philosophy is “to use relevant and accurate content to promote a healthy lifestyle and facilitate disease prevention, as well as to offer clinically significant, medically reviewed information for those who are seeking answers to their health questions.”
