Our editorial quality

Your health is important. Complex. And most of all, personal. Generic information simply won’t do. To deliver a quality experience based on your specific health needs, we rely on a just-right combination of intelligent technology and medical expertise.

Read on to learn more about the exceptional measures we take to make sure that the information you’re getting from Buoy is written by medical authorities, vetted by industry experts, and kept up-to-date by our team of award-winning editors.

Expert information
The Buoy experience is anything but generic. We prioritize the time and resources required to recruit world-class doctors and other specialists to share their expertise on the topics they know best. An eye doctor advising on a broken wrist, for example, doesn’t feel quite right to us.
Easy-to-use visuals
Our custom-drawn images are the work of scientific illustrators and vetted by doctors. Because some medical concepts are better understood visually.

When it comes to quality health guidance, shortcuts aren’t an option. That’s why medical articles on Buoy undergo at least four rounds of reviews by our doctors, specialists, illustrators and award-winning editors.

Every scientific illustration you see in our medical articles has been strictly vetted by our doctors and industry experts to ensure quality, accuracy, and clarity. We’re also fortunate enough to have been provided content by Harvard Medical School.
