Credentialed Medical Experts Behind All Content
Our CPOE.org team is always building to find the best prospects for our advisory panel.
How We Qualify Trusted SourcesWe categorize external links from our website to other sites in two ways: “Trusted Sources” and regular links.
Trusted Sources are visually represented with a lighter hyperlink color and a checkmark icon. We break down Trusted Sources into four categories:
1) Medical Journal — Scientific research published in a medical journal is the gold standard for research on health topics. We typically quote from medical journals with a peer-review process which reduces the bias of the data.
2) Educational Institution — Many educational institutions like Harvard Medical School directly publish their own medical research, and this category of research is typically non-sponsored and thorough.
3) Government Research — Governments often fund and publish independent research to advance basic science. This type of research is typically more general than that published by medical journals or educational institutions.
As an example, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) publishes data on the nutrient levels of various foods and food products which we’ve quoted in several articles.
4) Independent Research Organization — There exist organizations that conduct research on health topics, which are typically non-profit. John Hopkins Medicine is an example of this type of research which we’ve quoted before.
Display Ads Policy
CPOE.org does not necessarily endorse any of the companies advertising on our site. To eliminate any potential bias, we partnered with one of the largest ad placement firms in the U.S. that handles automated bidding for ads on CPOE.org and our articles. This method ensures we’re unaware of which brands are advertising on our site, which removes any potential bias. It also automates the ad process and allows us to spend our time researching and writing articles, instead of negotiating with companies looking to advertise on our site.
Monetizing our content with ads allows us to continue to fund the research that goes into CPOE.org articles. We own valuable digital real estate, and allow companies to advertise on it, but we don’t have agreements with these companies nor do we necessarily recommend their products or services.
On the Read Next feature of our blog, we add descriptive article tags to the suggested articles for user convenience and context. These tags occasionally reference health conditions such as diabetes and medical phrases such as “blood pressure reduction.”
These tags are not health claims and do not suggest that the subject of the review is effective for treating those health claims. Rather, these tags describe the general topic and the health claims made by the article subject.
As an example, a dietary supplement which purports to reduce cholesterol may be tagged with a “cholesterol reduction” tag. This does not suggest that this product does effectively reduce cholesterol; it just means that the brand or product being reviewed claims it does.
