UK's NHS Says Boehringer's Health Info is "clear, accurate, balanced, evidence-based, & current" | Pharmaguy's Insights Into Drug Industry News | Scoop.it

Germany-based Boehringer Ingelheim has become the first pharma company to be awarded The Information Standard (TIS) certification for the healthcare information it provides to patients, their families and carers.


The certification, which covers materials published in England, serves as a 'kite mark' for the standard of information provided by companies and organisations, acknowledging the content has undergone rigorous assessment by an independent authority.


Commissioned by NHS England and run by Capita, the TIS is intended to help people identify what health and care information is clear, accurate, balanced, evidence-based and up-to-date among the sea of content they have access to.
