SAMHSA. Health Information Resource Center: WEB HEALTH AWARDS.


About the Web Health AwardsSM

Now in its 16th year, the goal of the Web Health Awards is to recognize high-quality digital health 
resources for consumers and health professionals. The awards program is organized by the
Health Information Resource Center[sm] (HIRC), an 20-year old clearinghouse for professionals 
who work in consumer health fields.The Web Health Awards and Web Health Awards | MOBILE 
are extensions of the HIRC’s 21-year old National Health Information Awards[sm], the 
largest program of its kind in  the United States.

Because of the dynamic nature of digital health resources, the Web Health Awards competition
 is held twice each year: Winter/Spring and Summer/Fall.
