Healthwise redesigns popular self-care health guide handbooks

Healthwise : 04 June, 2007  (New Product)
The self-care guides Healthwise For Life and La salud en casa: Guia practica de Healthwise have been redesigned to adopt the easy to use style of the Healthwise Handbook 17th edition.
Self-care guides from Healthwise are among the most used and trusted health handbooks available.

Since 1975, Healthwise has distributed more than 30 million self-care guides throughout the world.

Highlights include:

- Plain-language content written at a 5th to 6th grade reading level.

- Full-colour illustrations and colour-coded sections.

- A free companion web site where readers can find content that helps them make decisions, master new skills, and learn more about their health.

'While health care crises of cost, quality, and staffing continue to make headlines, Healthwise has been helping people become active, engaged participants in their own health care', said Donald Kemper, MPH, Healthwise founder and CEO.

'People rely on Healthwise self-care guides to help them become healthier and smarter about their health'.

Now in its seventh edition, Healthwise for Life provides decision focused, action oriented information on common health topics important to adults age 50 and older.

It includes new and expanded information that can help people improve their self-care skills, lower their health care costs, and stay healthy as they age.

The Spanish edition of the Healthwise Handbook - La salud en casa: Guia practica de Healthwise - has also been redesigned to reflect the clear, simple format of the Healthwise Handbook 17th edition.

Expert translators, including native speakers, ensure that translated information is written in plain language that is easy to read and understand.

Healthwise is revolutionising the role of information in health care with information therapy (Ix).

The Healthwise Ix Solution, the next generation of information therapy, begins with foundation products and services.

This self-service level of the Healthwise Ix Solution includes the Healthwise family of self-care guides.
