Why healthxwiki?

Commercial interests distort preventative health information online.

At the same time, it's diluted by existing health information sources -- rooted in designs for an earlier, information scarce era.

The result translates into many variations of the truth. We believe online health information should be filled with honesty.

For everyone.

Finding signal in the noise

We focus on high quality, actionable health insights systematically left out or diluted in the mainstream. 




-

User-centered research 

Our research focuses on intersections between digital health behavior and health action.



-

Local & Global Partnerships

We partner with organizations to design contextually appropriate digital health resources for communities with inconsistent access to traditional health resources. 


FAQs

healthxwiki models do not provide information on how to treat or diagnose health conditions and is not a replacement for competent, quality medical advice from health providers.

Our mission includes disrupting two specific types of online health misinformation-- internal and external to the health industry. 

The first revolves around diluted health information from within the health industry, where health messages are designed for a previous information scarce era but consumed in the current information dense, digitally mature era.

The second revolves around distorted health information, driven by competing agendas.
