"It is common sense that you cannot believe everything you read on the Internet, but Asembia has gone to great lengths to try to be an exception by achieving independent Health Website Accreditation and Health Content Provider Accreditation from URAC," said URAC President and CEO Kylanne Green. "URAC's rigorous and independent accreditation standards for health care-related websites demand disclosure, quality oversight, and accountability.

URAC's Health Web Site Accreditation program is a leading quality improvement service that provides meaningful feedback to health website owners on how to improve the quality of operations, including privacy and security, health content editorial processes, disclosure of financial relationships, linking policies, and emerging best practices. URAC's Health Content Provider Accreditation requires health content or personal health management providers to develop editorial policies and apply these policies to all health information distributed to entities that will ultimately share it with consumers. Accredited organizations must ensure that their health content authors and reviewers are licensed, credentialed, and able to critically evaluate health information. URAC standards closely examine a number of different areas, including organizational policies and structures, disclosure, health content, quality oversight, and accountability.
