Quality Health Information

We go to great lengths to attain our goal of providing accurate, current and useful health information. To do this, we primarily rely on the expertise of our content partners. Our site also contains material created by news services, government agencies (such as the National Institutes of Health), non-profit organizations, and other content partners.

Source Identifications

We want you to know the source of the material you are viewing on our site. You can find this source information on all material. These are the types of source identifications you will see, either at the top or the bottom of the material:

• Material provided by government agencies and non-profit organizations is identified by the name and/or logo of the agency or organization at the bottom of the material.

• News articles are identified with a date at the top of the article and the name and/or logo of the news service at the beginning of the article.

• The source of material from other third parties is identified in the material.

Attribution & Justifiability

We review all of the sites to determine whether or not these sites, to the best of their knowledge, produce quality, accurate, and unbiased information.

Editorial Independence

As stated in the Advertising and Sponsorship Policy, neither advertising nor sponsorship will influence this Web site's news, information content, or editorial positions.

3-RX.com maintains complete editorial independence and does not permit advertisers or third-party sponsors to change content, influence, or to introduce biased content into 3-RX.com sections.

Our editorial independence and reliance on credible companies in the health-care industry for our content is our single most important asset.

Current Information

We strive to update the medical content and tools on our site. The date of the most recent review or update is noted at the top or bottom of each article or tool.

• The medical news on our site are updated on a daily basis.

• The information in the licensed databases is updated on a quarterly basis, or as warranted by the content provider.

• The content is updated immediately whenever urgent new information renders existing articles out of date. Such information may include:
- Major drug and supplement recalls and alerts
- Changes in federal guidelines for disease management
- Major medical studies with the potential to affect treatment guidelines

• Government agencies and non-profit organizations often mark material with the date it was created and keep that date as long as the material remains current. We check with these agencies and organizations that material dated over two years ago remains current. The original date remains on the material, but we add a line - "Current as of ..." - to indicate the last date we checked with the source that the material remains current.
