Health Website Ratings (HWR) project: Project plan

The Institute's Health Website Rating (HWR) project is an extension of its program to assess and to improve the quality of health information on the Internet (QHII). The project's purpose is to develop independent ratings of health websites, and to evaluate the utility to consumers of such ratings. The Institute is conducting this project in collaboration with Consumer Reports WebWatch (a program of Consumers Union).
