WHAT:

The new Yahoo! Health (http://health.yahoo.com) website launches today, providing millions of people access to the largest library of health content available online, as well as dynamic health information tools and the best medical search on the Web - putting important health answers right at consumer's fingertips.

Healthline Networks is the provider of these tools on Yahoo! Health.

New tools and features include:

  • A massive library of articles and videos on the latest health news and healthy living advice
  • Daily blogs from Yahoo! Health's experts with leading institutions like Johns Hopkins Medical School and publications like Men's Health and Self
  • Find the latest information about Symptoms, Treatments and Local Doctors with Health-specific Web Search
  • Multiple health tools including Health Calculators, Risk Assessments  and Quizzes

WHY:

"People are flooding into the healthcare system, leaving doctors short on time and putting the onus on all of us to be smart about our health," said West Shell III, Chairman and CEO of Healthline Networks. "To get healthy and make the most of our time in the doctor's office, we need to take personal health and medical care into our own hands. Yahoo! Health now puts all of the necessary information at our fingertips."

"The demand for easy access to accurate health information has become even more critical with the passing of the new national healthcare bill, which will draw 30 million additional Americans into the healthcare system," said Damon Cronkey, senior director and regional business lead for Yahoo! Health.  "With prevention coming to the forefront and becoming as important as treatment, our new health site helps our users get the most accurate and helpful answers to their health questions."
