The Hospital Clínic of Barcelona launches a website to answer questions about health


The Hospital Clínic of Barcelona has launched PortalCLINIC, a website with proven and reliable information on health, in order to combat access to health information that is not very reliable, or even alarmist, that people find on the Internet. The content is supported by more than 200 medical and nursing professionals from the centre.

Dr. Antoni Castells, medical director of the centre, is one of the people responsible for presenting the portal, developed over three years and which will incorporate content in Catalan, Spanish and English. The clinic’s managing director, Dr. Josep Maria Campistol, has declared that they hope it becomes a "global benchmark" health portal. Users can subscribe to a notification system to know when content is updated on issues of their interest. The initial investment was €1.4 million with the support of the BBVA Foundation.
