HHS Initiates On-Line "Channel"

Published Online: Thursday, July 1, 2004

The US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has launched a 9-month pilot project with WebMD Health. The collaboration will make HHS consumer health information more widely and more readily available to the public on a new HHS online "channel" on WebMD.

During the pilot, HHS will choose health content supporting national priorities and relevant to a general consumer audience from a variety of information produced by HHS agencies. Topics discussed will include physical activity, nutrition, preventive screening, and diabetes. The new HHS channel on WebMD will showcase information from across the many HHS agencies that distribute health information to the public, such as the FDA, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The HHS channel can be accessed at www.hhs.webmd.com.
