Children's Hospital launches Health and Wellness Portal

Parents may be overwhelmed when searching online for children’s health information. The Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt has launched a health and wellness online portal to provide access to trusted doctor-reviewed information.

The Health and Wellness Portal on the Children’s Hospital website features content from Krames Staywell, a national leader in patient health information. Diseases and conditions articles are also in Spanish. The portal includes interactive tools such as a symptom checker, quizzes, a children’s body mass calculator and a searchable drug reference.

As part of a new system to standardize patient education materials, Krames Staywell resources are being used in clinics and hospitals across Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

The Health and Wellness Portal for families can found here.
