Editorial Guidelines

You can go online and find health information pretty much anywhere. When you use a search engine to try and find correct information about a wellness topic, you’re often bombarded by the first five or so search results being paid advertisements from websites that spend money to make sure they’re the first link you see.

But all of this information can be confusing, especially for someone who doesn’t have a medical background. How are you supposed to know which wellness websites have your best interest in mind and which ones are just looking to make a quick buck on ad revenue?

Health Reporter is dedicated to collecting, writing, researching, and publishing the most accurate health and wellness information online. Our Editorial team has a hard-to-beat process that helps ensure that all of our information passes the high standards of both our on-staff Medical team and our editors.

Health Reporter does this because we care about our community, and we care about making accurate medical information accessible to everyone who needs it. We are 100% supported by our readers and entirely free of sponsorships. You won’t see misinformation pushed on Health Reporter just because a brand is able to pay for it!

We care deeply about the health of our readers and the experience they have with Health Reporter. We’re working hard to translate dense medical information into layman’s terms so that our readers have access to the things they need to know.

Our mission

Health Reporter wants to be your trusted go-to for information on health, wellness, and diet topics. We’re dedicated to making sure our readers have easy-to-understand and accurate information available at their fingertips so that they can live longer, healthier, and happier lives.

What goes into our content

From new diets to workout trends to mental health, Health Insider brings you content that goes through an intense vetting process. Every single article that you read here on Health Reporter is heavily researched and written by health enthusiasts. They are then vetted by our team of medical professionals and editors, who make sure that all of the information is accurate and easily understood.

Our content works towards helping the everyday person understand complex and sometimes confusing topics surrounding health and wellness. We strive to do more than just make content that can easily feed into an ad revenue machine. We don’t cut corners with our content. Each article you read is well researched and relevant to what you’re looking for.

Research, resources, and references

We don’t get our information from just anywhere. We make sure that any information we collect online comes from a trusted source.

Before our Medical team vets an article, our writers use highly educational and authoritative resources and references during the research phase of their article writing. If you’re looking for more reading after finishing an article, you’ll be able to see where all of our information comes from.

Accurate and up to date

Isn’t it just the worst when you’re looking for medical information only to find out that the article you’re reading hasn’t been updated since 2006? With how medical technology and medical information work these days, there’s always new information.

Part of Health Reporter’s editorial process is to make sure that we’re not bringing our outdated information from articles and sources that haven’t been updated in years. Your health and wellness are far too important to us to slack off when it comes to up-to-date information.

Our medical experts vet all of our content to make sure we’re providing you with complete information on standards of care, drug approvals or recalls, recommendations by practicing doctors, and updated clinical guidelines.

Empathy and understanding

Some online medical and wellness information can come off as condescending, confusing, complicated, or just plain incomprehensible. Here at Health Reporter, we don’t ever want to make someone feel like they’re stupid for ending up on our website after searching a question.

Our articles will always be written with the utmost empathy and compassion for our readers, no matter what information they’re searching for. We’re devoted to showcasing a variety of different wellness articles, everything from the humorous to the deep and emotional.

We understand that not everyone can afford the most luxurious of healthy lifestyles and that some advice pushed by other wellness websites can leave many of its readers feeling left out. Here at Health Report, we’re here for all of our readers, whether they’re able to keep up with the latest trends or not.

This promise of empathy and understanding allows others to share their stories. We make sure that it’s readily evident which articles are personal stories, opinions, or health articles. We strive to keep our community connected with one another and allowing everyday people a platform is one of the ways we keep that promise.

You matter to us

So why do we do all of this? Wouldn’t it just be easier and faster not to go through such a rigorous process?

Health Reporter is committed to this process because of you. You, our readers, matter to us. We would be nowhere without our dedicated readers and our intelligent and understanding community. We strive to bring you the most cutting-edge health and wellness content so that you know who to trust online.

Health information on the internet is vast and endless. Taking the approach that you, our readers, are the most important thing to us allows us to focus on information that’s current, accurate, and interesting.
