MedPICS Certification and Rating of Trustworthy and Assessed Health
Information on the Net
The project is funded by the European Union under the "Action
Plan on promoting safer use of the Internet by combating illegal
and harmful content on global networks".
MedCERTAIN will be a decentralised system based on
the cooperation of individuals and organisations that evaluate,
assess, accredit or recommend health information on the Internet.
MedCERTAIN will establish a fully functional self-
and third-party rating system enabling patients and consumers to
filter harmful health information and to positively identify and
select high quality information. We aim to provide a system allowing
European citizens to place greater trust in networked health information.
