The UNHS Healthwise® Knowledgebase is your best resource when making decisions about your health and health care.
Find information about health conditions, medical tests and procedures, medications, and everyday health and wellness issues in a friendly format. Every topic is based on reliable, most up-to-date medical research compiled by an expert team of physicians, nurses, medical writers, and researchers using the best evidence from medical science.
Today, more than ever before, information is care, and Healthwise information helps you think less like a patient and more like a partner with your doctor. Within the course of every illness or health problem, people are called upon to make decisions—little decisions about whether to call a doctor and what self-care is best, and big decisions about medications, tests, and surgeries.
The Healthwise Knowledgebase is accredited by URAC. Every Healthwise topic is based on the most reliable, most up-to-date medical research. It is the same information source used by your healthcare provider, including printouts and other documents he or she may have shared with you.
