Search results in Live Search Health were presented in a three-column layout with health-related articles from the trusted sources in the left, web search results in the middle, and sponsored results on the right.

Prescription Drug Information, Interactions & Side Effects List of medical wikis This is a list of medical wikis, collaboratively-editable websites that focus on medical information. Many of the most popular medical wikis take the form of encyclopedias, with a separate article for each medical term. Some of these websites, such as WikiDoc and Radiopaedia, are editable by anyone, while others, such as Ganfyd, restrict editing access to professionals. The majority of them have content available only in English. The largest and most popular general encyclopedia, Wikipedia, also hosts a significant amount of health and medical information.

The purpose of the site is to provide reliable and easily accessed health information for the medical community including physicians, nurses, and medical students. As of February 2015, although still online, the wiki had minimal ongoing contributions, with only 3 edits in 2014.[6] Clinfowiki[edit]

Healthcare-Related Search Engines | Topical Search Blog by tedeytan At one stage of search engines’ history, consumer health search engines were considered a true rivals of horizontal search engines. Taking into account the demand for online health information and the online advertising budgets of the pharmaceutical industry and health-care institutions, these search engines had a profitable business model. Moreover, Microsoft acquired one of these specialized search engines for its then newly-horizontal search engine, Bing. However, in the long run, search engines like Healia, Kosmix, and MammaHealth, made room for health information portals that comprise comprehensive consumer health information. These portals usually include an internal search engine with keyword-based or symptoms-based search options. From a business perspective, these portals can keep users in their own domain and make money from search as well as from content. MedlinePlus is both a health portal and a specialized search engine.
