HealthyLine Editorial Process Policy
Our staff of healthcare professionals and medical experts determines that all of the content produced on the HealthyLine website, as well as the sources linked or quoted, are factual, relevant, and reliable. They are consulted every step of the way from conception to execution. There are several steps that are required before any editorial piece can become a published work on our website. Unless all criteria have been met, our internal team will not consider the piece to be reliable.
Content Development – During the concept phase, our team of researchers monitor news outlets, respected peer-reviewed journals, government organizations and statement, and other critical sources of information for the most relevant and new content to be used. When a topic is deemed both necessary and relevant, our writers work alongside our medical professionals to determine the best way to present the ideas in a simple way.
Editorial Review – Upon finishing the initial draft, our Editorial editor reviews each pieces for style, grammar, punctuation, simplistic language, and ease of readability to provide the best user experience for our audience.
Medical Review – After the editor approves the piece, it is passed along to our team of medical professional consultants. At this stage the piece is reviewed for medical accuracy, proper terminology, and to make sure that the studies and findings used to support the piece are applied correctly. If there is a need for corrections, the piece is passed back to the writers and the process repeats from the beginning.
Preparing the Content – In this step, the content has finally been approved in all stages of review. Now it has to be prepared for the website. Our coders and designers will work together to create a page for the content that maximizes the experience of the reader and find imagery that best compliments the information.
Publishing the Content – The content is finally made public on the website for all to view. All members review the final product. Feedback is taken and adjustments are made if necessary.
Ongoing Monitoring -– Our team continues to monitor sources and publications for relevant information and new ideas that emerge. These findings are used to keep the content updated with the most recent information. All sources of information are reviewed at a minimum of quarterly to ensure their accuracy.
