Our content mission

The patient will see you now

The patient is at the forefront of everything we do here at HealthMatch - from the content we create to why we try to improve the process of finding and accessing clinical trials.

With HealthMatch, you can trust you’ll find information that’s accurate and easy to understand. No complicated medical jargon. Just the facts explained to you by a friend, if that friend was a very experienced healthcare professional.

We want to be the only place you go to learn more about your health. It's all here - from learning how to give yourself a breast exam, finding the right oncologist, or accessing life-changing cancer treatment through a clinical trial.

Our medical review process

We always get a second opinion

Each and every one of our articles is reviewed by a qualified healthcare professional before its published. We work with external experts and specialists to ensure our content is accurate, including nutritionists, oncologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, and licensed general practitioners.

These reviewers check that our information is not overly complicated or packed with medical jargon so a better understanding of health is available to all. They also check that information is sourced from reputable institutions, like the CDC, the NIH, or the NHS, and recent research articles.

Share your feedback

Your voice is vital

We want to hear what you think of our content - the good, the bad, and the ugly. Share your opinions, suggestions, compliments, and complaints here, and help us deliver a better experience for people wanting to take control of their health.
