Healthfinder.gov is a user-tested, easy-to-understand federal Web site that provides information on disease prevention, health promotion and wellness to the general public. The mission of the site is to help the public make informed health decisions by providing accurate, timely and actionable information. Many Americans struggle with the complex health information found on the Web, which is why healthfinder is written in plain language and is designed for the user who may have low health literacy.
Healthfinder features the Quick Guide to Healthy Living, which synthesizes wellness guidance with actionable information from across the Department of Health and Human Services, and myhealthfinder, a personalized, interactive decision support tool for clinical preventive services.
