iCliniq’s Text Content
As mentioned before, iCliniq’s content is reviewed and updated by medical doctors who are also skilled in medical editing and writing. Each and every article is reviewed by two physicians (a medical doctor writes the article, which then gets reviewed by another medical specialist). We display the writer and reviewer names in every article, along with the date it was published and last reviewed.

The medical questions and answers (Q/A) displayed on the site are actual conversations between iCliniq's doctors and users. Before these answers get published, all the personally identifiable information, such as the patient's name, location, nationality, religion, race, and all other information that can be traced back to the user, are removed to protect our user's privacy. The medical reports, images, and lab tests shared by the users are secure and shared with no one other than the iCliniq doctor they consult.

We keep our content up-to-date by identifying articles and Q/A that need to be reviewed and assigning them to be revamped by our reviewers. iCliniq also receives feedback from the thousands of doctors onboard about articles that require immediate review based on recent changes in medical practice. In addition, our in-house Medical Quality Assurance Analyst constantly monitors announcements by Government bodies, peer-reviewed literature, and new guidelines provided by reputed societies regarding vital changes in medical care. We also receive feedback from other doctors and users who read our content, which is also taken into consideration while reviewing any pieces of content.
