The winning medical illustrations and videos are just a few of thousands of educational materials Healthwise produces to inform, educate, and support patients and caregivers through the healthcare journey. Two of the award-winning pieces continue the recent recognition Healthwise has received for its pediatric education. For the last three consecutive years, Healthwise has won digital health awards for medical illustrations and videos for and about children. The Bronze award-winning "Choosing a Counselor or Therapist for Your Child" video exemplifies Healthwise's user-centric, inclusive design. The video was created with a signature, user-tested visual style that supports diversity and inclusion and the script has an empathetic, positive tone. The video also reflects Healthwise’s expansion of mental and behavioral health education.

“We’re honored to receive Digital Health Awards for the health education we create,” said Christy Calhoun, Chief Content Officer at Healthwise. “These awards help showcase Healthwise’s efforts to create visual, inclusive education that fulfills educational purpose and addresses health literacy challenges.”

Healthwise was founded in 1975 with the simple nonprofit mission “to help people make better health decisions.” Healthwise partners with hospitals, health plans, health portals, and technology companies to fulfill that mission by providing the health content they need, the technology to deliver it, and the expert services to ensure success.

The Digital Health Awards, the most comprehensive of its kind, recognizes the best consumer health information in materials and programs from organizations throughout the nation.
