OnHealth and Better Homes and Gardens Online Sign Deal

Posted on May 3, 1999

OnHealth Network Company, an Internet health resource, and Meredith Corporation's Better Homes and Gardens Online, have announced an agreement whereby OnHealth will provide health news and information for the Better Homes and Gardens website.

As part of the arrangement, Better Homes and Gardens Online will tap OnHealth's supply of editorial content to enhance the site's existing health resources. OnHealth currently includes extensive health features such as the interactive Cold, Flu or Allergy Guide; a special health and fitness section; and a library of informative feature articles.

OnHealth will be a major content provider for the site's daily health news channel and will offer Better Homes and Gardens' online audience easy access to OnHealth's large database of information about a wide range of medical conditions. Through the agreement, Better Homes and Gardens becomes the first national online magazine brand to distribute OnHealth content. Under the one-year deal, in addition to the content distribution, OnHealth will provide an archive of its daily news content. Better Homes and Gardens is expected to launch its updated health area in early May.

Jean LemMon, Editor-in-Chief of Better Homes and Gardens magazine, says in a statement, "We live in a health conscious society in which people are constantly looking for easy-to-access high quality health information. "With its commitment to excellence and consumer-friendly approach, OnHealth is an excellent partner to help us meet that need for our website users."
