NetWellness Named Hot Site by USA Today

Cincinnati--NetWellness, the online consumer health information website originally developed and maintained by the University of Cincinnati (UC) Medical Center, was listed in the August 20 edition USA Today in the "guide to hot sites."

USA Today described NetWellness as follows: "The value of consumer health information on the Web increases a good bit with the addition of NetWellness. Developed by the University of Cincinnati Medical Center and other well-regarded partners, the site not only offers information on various health topics but also a helpful "Ask an Expert" section. They promise to reply to most questions in 1-2 days."

Roger Guard, director of Academic Information Technology and Libraries at UC Medical Center says, "NetWellness is a web-based health information service specifically designed to empower health care consumers. NetWellness’ high quality and timely information enables consumers to be actively involved with their health care providers to better manage their health."

Some of NetWellness’ resources are: 300 health magazines, 24 health books, thousands of patient education materials, and the Ask an Expert services in which physicians, nurses, optometrists, pharmacists, and other health professionals answer questions about 25 current topics.

UC created NetWellness in 1995. In July 1997, The Ohio State University (OSU) and the Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) joined NetWellness, bringing both their institutional commitments and the strength of their health sciences faculties.
