Hello Health Group - Editorial & Corrections Policy

Editorial Policy

Editorial Integrity

Our mission is to bring you the most objective, trustworthy, and accurate health information. Our daily goal is to ensure that Hello Health Group is your practical and relevant content source for health and wellness.

We are committed to providing information on a wide variety of health topics, and rather than filtering certain types of information that may or may not be applicable to any one individual’s personal health, we rely on you, our reader, to choose the information that is most appropriate for you. Be aware, however, that information on Hello Health Group or any other web site should not be used as a substitute for professional healthcare. You should always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Never disregard professional medical advice or delay in seeking it because of something you have read on our site or any site.

Editorial Selection Criteria for Original Content

Hello Health Group creates original content based upon the following criteria:

Relevance — Issues that could affect how you manage your own health and that of your family’s. Topics include coverage of health news; drug and product launches, recalls, and alerts; health advisories; and expert commentary on managing diseases and conditions and staying healthy.

Clinical Significance – Sources and medical references used have referenced the latest medical findings published in peer-reviewed medical journals and trusted local and international sources for medical and health information. Including government websites, doctor association websites, medical journals and others.

Trends — Seasonal interests, such as “Flood Safety,” “Allergy Seasons,” and “Cold and Flu;” public health awareness, such as “Breast Cancer Awareness Month,” and “Healthy Heart Month;” and emerging health trends, such as the latest in nutrition, fitness, disease prevention, healthy living, alternative approaches, and much more.

Our Content Is Unique

It’s more reliable. In a medium often accused of providing outdated and inaccurate information, Hello Health Group stands out as a credible, authoritative source of health information.

Our content is created locally in each country we operate and for the platform in that specific country. Each piece of information and content provides our readers with a comprehensive, balanced and clear perspective on the specific topic in question. Whether the content is medical, lifestyle or news related. 

Our news and feature stories are based on our editors’ selections of the most important and relevant health events occurring on a given day. Our news articles are more than a short summary of a study or an event. They often contain interviews with the medical researchers who authored them, plus interviews with objective experts who can put the research into context and tell the reader what it means in today’s world.

Editorial Integrity — Hello Health Group ‘s journalistic responsibility is to make a clear distinction between news, features, reference, and other information, so that individuals can readily distinguish independent editorial information from paid, promotional information.

Editorial Independence — In its reporting, Hello Health Group maintains exemplary principles of fairness, accuracy, objectivity, and responsible, independent reporting.

Journalistic Excellence — Hello Health Group upholds traditional journalistic principles of excellence in reporting original news for the Internet and in reviewing and corroborating information from other sources.

Editorial Policy for Hello Health Group Editorial Staff

Anyone who serves on the Hello Health Group Editorial staff must fully disclose any potential conflict of interest with any sponsor or vendor. Our editorial staff are trained and coached to be able to produce well balanced, medically accurate content, sourcing information from only trusted sources and localising necessary information to make it relevant for our local readers.

The Hello Health Group Editorial staff is charged with the responsibility of providing objective, accurate, and balanced accounts of topics, events and issues. Hello Health Group editorial staff must diligently seek out subjects of stories or qualified experts to provide commentary. They also seek objective commentary or comment from a qualified spokesperson to provide balance.

Hello Health Group editorial staff strive to provide thorough and honest coverage and share a dedication to ethical behavior and the highest professional standards.

Original Article Process

The Hello Health Group Editorial staff gets its stories from an array of sources: peer-reviewed medical journals, medical conferences, federal or state government actions, and enterprise material derived from interviews with medical experts. Hello Health Group also believes that valuable content is available from Hello Health Group sponsors, advertisers, and partners, but that such content must be clearly labeled.

Each completed piece of content to be published is reviewed by an expert for accuracy, appropriateness of medical language, and proper characterization of the findings. Depending on the topic these experts may or may not be medically certified. The story is then reviewed by an Editorial Editor who edits it for style, flow, punctuation, and readability. Finally, the story moves from editing to publishing on the site.

Licensed Content

When Hello Health Group licenses health and wellness content from third-parties for publication on our site, the Hello Health Group senior Editorial editors and medical editors review the third-party’s editorial policies and procedures for consistency with the Hello Health Group Editorial Policies.

Sponsored Content and Advertising

In using our site, you will see that some content, buttons, badges and banners are labeled “Sponsored”, “From Our Sponsor” or “Advertisement”. Hello Health Group will possibly receive funding from the production and publication of this content. For more information on our Advertising & Sponsor policy you can read more here.

Hello Health Group Corrections Policy

Hello Health Group is committed to making corrections or clarifications to original content when it deems necessary. We take prompt action to edit even minor errors like spelling, grammar, or stylistic changes. Because style changes do not change the meaning of the content, those kinds of “style” changes will be updated on our site without notice.

If we identify errors that are material to the content, we will update the content as soon as possible and republish the updated piece of content. This corrections policy only applies to Hello Health Group original content, including, but not limited to, news, feature articles, or original medical reference material. Any corrections to license or third party content are the responsibility of the publisher.

If you believe you have found an error in any of our content, let us know by sending an email to our team using the “Contact Us” links in the footer section of our Site.
