Medical information on Bing

Find out how Bing works with experts to review our medical content.

Medical information on Bing comes from trusted medical content partners and the Bing knowledge graph. Information on many medical conditions is reviewed by a panel of medical professionals.

What medical info is available on Bing?

What sources does Bing use for medical information?

Information about medication on Bing comes from First Databank and other medical websites. Focus Medica provides information about medical conditions, symptoms, tests, and procedures. This information is reviewed by a panel of medical professionals. The panel does not review specific Bing search terms or the results displayed for those terms. The panel currently includes:

  • Dr. Bo Burns, DO, FACEP, The George Kaiser Family Foundation, chair in emergency medicine (University of Oklahoma)
  • Dr. Ilya Aleksandrovskiy, MD (University at Buffalo)
  • Dr. Patrick Kearns, MPH (Harvard Medical School), PGCert Med Ed (University of Glasgow), MRCP UK
  • Dr. Rahul S. Gandhi, MPH (Harvard Medical School), MBChB (University of Auckland)

When you search for medical information, you may see a section called 'People also search for.' This information comes from search behavior and our knowledge graph.

If you search for a symptom, you may see a section called 'Related health conditions.' This section comes from search results and our knowledge graph. We check these results for relevance.

How does Bing provide medical information in different languages?

Bing sources data in English from third parties and translates it. We also use data from market-specific medical websites to add information where appropriate. Translations of medical information are intended to be used as a reference, not as medical advice. We cannot guarantee complete accuracy.

When to consult a medical professional

Medical information on Bing is not intended as medical advice and doesn't apply to everyone. Contact a healthcare provider if you have a medical concern. In the event of a medical emergency, call your doctor or local emergency number immediately.
