Veritas Health websites employ a rigorous review and editing process to evaluate all content for accuracy and originality.
For an article to be published on a Veritas Health website, it must be:
- Written by a health professional.
- Reviewed and edited by the Veritas Health editorial team.
- Blind peer reviewed by a Medical Advisory Board member, who reviews and suggests revisions without knowing the identity of the author.
This process is modeled after medical journals and ensures articles are reviewed with integrity and objectivity.
All content published on Veritas Health websites is reviewed and edited by our editorial team, which consults health care professionals and subject area experts, ensuring our content meets the highest standards. Our editorial team regularly reviews and updates content to reflect the latest research and accepted health care practices.
Our Medical Advisory Board provides oversight, using their expertise to enhance the quality and verify the accuracy of our health information.
We are not owned or influenced by any company that sells products, devices, or pharmaceuticals. All advertisements and sponsorships are clearly identified and labeled.
The Veritas Health editorial team is knowledgeable, experienced, and above all, dedicated to empowering people with the health information they want. Editors work closely with health professionals to produce accurate, comprehensive information that can be put into action. Before it is published, all content—including articles, blogs, videos, and visuals—is reviewed and edited by our editorial team.

Medical Review Process for Videos and Animations
To ensure the highest degree of quality and accuracy, each Veritas Health video and animation must undergo an extensive production process before publication:
- A member of our Medical Advisory Board medically reviews each script.
- Medical illustrators produce a preliminary version of a video or animation based on the approved script.
- This preliminary version is reviewed by the Medical Advisory Board member. Once approved, the final version is produced.
Veritas Health applies this multi-step process in order to develop the most anatomically precise, user-friendly videos and animations available.
Our Medical Animators/ Illustrators
Our illustrators and animators aim to clearly communicate even the most complex health situations. They use their Masters-level training in biomedical visualization and collaborate with our editors to produce visual content that is medically accurate and easy to understand.
