Healia is the premier consumer health search engine for finding high quality and personalized health information on the Web

What Company Is Offering:
Healia is the premier consumer health search engine for finding high quality and personalized health information on the Web. It serves as an independent, unbiased gateway to the highest quality health information resources.

How It Works:

Healia is optimized for health search by integrating cutting-edge technology including health "intelligence" to provide the best results for health queries.

Healia's innovative technology ensures the highest quality and personally relevant search results. In an independent, blinded trial at a major university, physicians rated Healia significantly higher than Google™ and another health search engine in the overall quality of health search results.

Healia's unique technology functions like a trusted health librarian who helps you wade through the maze of online health information to find the exact nugget of reliable information that you need. Healia helps you save time, avoid unreliable information, and become more knowledgeable about your health.

How is different from other search engines:

Healia's patent-pending technology consists of algorithms and methods for evaluating the quality of Web content, for categorizing Web pages and enabling personalized searching, for pushing targeted messages, and for seamlessly integrating search technology with any Web application. Healia is different than other search engines in the following ways:

Healia consistently provides high quality search results. They ensure that you get the highest quality results by using our patent-pending Quality Index Score™, which examines numerous characteristics of content that are related to the quality of health information. With Healia, you won't be inundated with unreliable search results like on other search engines.

Healia helps you find more personally relevant information. They employ advanced technology to analyze Web pages and categorize them according to specific target audiences, subtopics, and user preferences. With Healia's numerous "Personal Search" filters, you can easily identify the results that are most relevant to your individual needs and preferences.

Healia helps you search more effectively and more efficiently. They use advanced semantic technology (technology enables computers to "understand" what search terms mean and how they are related to other concepts) to guide your search. Using health vocabularies of hundreds of thousands of health-related concepts, similar, more general, and more specific search terms and concepts are presented when appropriate. Healia also includes a health-optimized spellchecker and provides expanded equivalents of common medical abbreviations and acronyms.

Healia is quick and easy to use. Because "one size does not fit all," they provide a choice of either a simpler interface without our filters or a standard interface with filtering options.
