Healthily awarded HONcode certification

24 February 2021 in Company

Healthily is pleased to announce that the Health On the Net (HON) foundation has awarded us the HONcode certification for the highest standards for health information creation.

This certification – along with the Patient Information Forum (PIF) Tick and the UK National Health Service’s The Information Standard – are quality markers that show how committed Healthily is to producing high-quality, evidence-based, actionable consumer health and care information.

HON was founded more than 25 years ago to promote the creation and efficient use of reliable health information. Today, the HONcode certification is the oldest and most valued quality marker for online health information. HON advises the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations, the World Health Organization and the Health Informatics Technical Committee of the International Organization for Standardization.

In receiving the HONcode certification, Healthily has joined more than 8,000 health-related websites that all follow the HONcode 8 governing principles:

  • Authority
  • Complementarity
  • Confidentiality
  • Attribution
  • Justifiability
  • Transparency
  • Financial disclosure
  • Advertising policy

To receive the HONcode certification, Healthily was reviewed by medical and security experts in a sitewide audit.
