Customized health information for you

How do you sort through all the health-related information you find online? . . .


Katie Hannibal

Medical information abounds on the Internet. Just type the word “cancer” into a search engine and you’ll have millions of sites to choose from. Deciding which information to trust isn’t easy or quick even for the savviest web surfers. Sometimes the information is just what was needed, but more often your search will end in frustration.

To help sift through the overwhelming amount of information on the Internet, Healthnetwork will conduct a Health Information Search (HIS) to provide you with the latest, most up-to-date information available. Healthnetwork has partnered with a leading medical center to ensure that our members receive accurate information from a variety of sources, many of which are not in the public domain.

Additionally, Healthnetwork medical director, Susan Locke, M.D., is available to assist with the compilation of medical information. Information will be distributed electronically or as a hard copy, whichever you prefer.

What’s included? The HIS contains materials from a variety of credible medical sources and provides some of the best information on the Web for understanding symptoms and diseases, diagnostic tests, treatment options and latest medical research. Every request is unique and information provided in the search is tailored to your specific request.

How quickly can I receive the information? Searches are performed upon request and are usually completed within two business days. Once the information has been compiled it can be mailed or e-mailed.

How do I make a request? Legates may request a HIS by contacting Healthnetwork. Contact information is to the right.

What does it cost? The service is free for Legatus members.
