Well-Connected enables libraries to extend their reach beyond physical buildings, giving patrons access to relevant and timely health and wellness information from anywhere they have internet access.
Well-Connected fills the void for those seeking credible and thorough medical information written in easy-to-understand language. This resource provides 100 comprehensive reports on common diseases and health issues, all of which can be conveniently searched, downloaded, or printed. People are looking for health information on specific conditions and they want the ability to look up symptoms before a visit to the doctor. It’s important to research a diagnosis in order to better understand a condition or to investigate a pending procedure. With endless amounts of advice on the internet, how does one determine what’s credible and what’s not? Well-Connected is the answer to this crucial demand. Written by top medical journalists and reviewed by an expert physician board — reports are revised quarterly to ensure that each topic is up-to-date with the latest medical breakthroughs and technologies.
Well-Connected has been a trusted resource for libraries and their patrons for more than a decade, providing detailed information on key health conditions. Authoritative, thorough, and updated regularly, each report is a comprehensive review of the latest information on risk factors, causes, diagnostic tests, treatments, and preventative measures.

People are increasingly taking an active role in their health and overall wellness. We provide the needed resources to gain a clearer understanding of complex medical information.
