Quality of health information on the Internet (QHII)
Health Website Ratings (HWR) project: Update
Health Improvement Institute (HII) in collaboration with Consumer Reports WebWatch (CRW) has established the website "HealthRatings.org." This project's primary purpose is to enable consumers to become more informed users of health websites. It produces independent ratings of health websites and displays them on the ratings website. The project published the first wave of health website ratings in June 2005. Since then it has published several additional waves of ratings.
Currently, HII/CRW are in the process of:
Health Improvement Institute is a non-profit, tax exempt, 501(c)3, charitable organization dedicated to improving the quality and productivity of America's health care. The Health Improvement Institute is rating websites with the active support of the Medical Library Association
Consumer Reports WebWatch is a project of Consumers Union — the non-profit publisher of Consumer Reports Magazine, ConsumerReports.org, newsletters on health and personal finance, and numerous websites on a variety of topics.
