What is it? What does it do?

Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Consumer Health Information has developed a large database of credible, comprehensive and current health information. The center has provided this useful content to patients, providers and organizations for 30 years, and served as WebMD’s exclusive content creation partner for six years.
The center’s more than 1,700 documents address 900 different health topics — diseases, conditions, symptoms, procedures and more. The content, all original, has been written by a wide range of Cleveland Clinic physicians and other healthcare professionals, as well as award-winning medical writers and editors.

Why is it better?

  • Current. Ranked as the #2 hospital in the United States, Cleveland Clinic is where medical innovations take place.
  • Usable. Health information is often complex and confusing for many patients. To make our content more accessible to a broad and diverse audience, we strive to make it as reader-friendly as possible.
  • Impartial. Cleveland Clinic is a not-for-profit organization and does not accept any sort of advertising. All of our documents are unaffected by outside interests.
  • Valued. Cleveland Clinic’s Consumer Health Information website consistently receives national awards, including a 2015 platinum award for Best Health/Healthcare Content from eHealthcare Leadership.

What is its current status?

We keep our content updated throughout the year based on the latest research, innovations, and evidence-based guidelines, and make these updates constantly available to our partners through a direct connection.
