(6) When I Upload a Link to My Health Library or Share a Link in My Social Media Stream, Does OrganizedWisdom Copy My Content?

We do not copy articles or blog posts, and we work hard to block content farms from our system. Plagiarism is unacceptable. We adhere to the principles of “fair use” and only review and analyze public contributions. Note: If you are a health professional with a Digital Office and share a link in one of your connected streams, our system reviews several key attributes and meta data from that article or blog post in order to analyze, filter, tag and organize that piece of content. We then create a short snippet or “digest” about that content, much the same way Google does in its search results, or Flipboard does on it’s iPad App, in order to give people a sense of what that article or post is about so they can determine if it is useful to them. We always link directly to the original source and content provider. We also are transparent about the source of both the content as well as the health professional who shares it.

(7) I’m a Health Publisher and I Noticed Links to My Content Are Starting to Appear in Search Engines. How Does This Help Me?

This helps you in several ways. In addition to generating direct links into your content, we aim to make your content more discoverable in search engines. While we obviously do not control the algorithms of sites like Google and Bing, our goal is to promote and guide people to the very best health resources on the Web. Additionally, we make sure that these same links to your content are promoted extensively on our site, on our partners sites, and via our expert health Alerts to make them as widely accessible as possible. Think of us like a distribution system for your content and another channel to drive you traffic like DIGG, StumbleUpon, Twitter, or Google.

(8) Do You Give Credit to Those Who Upload a Link or Share a Resource and to the Source of the Content?

Yes, we clearly indicate and link to the original source of the content, and we indicate which health professional(s) shared that resource. We believe in full transparency and are working to create a system that empowers our users to more easily identify content, resources, and health professionals they can trust. If the health professional uploads a document or text to his or her Digital Office Health Library, the credit is given to the health professional who uploads it, and it is up to the health professional to clearly indicate the source of the content being added to his or her Health Library. If the health professional embeds a video in his or her Health Library, he or she is clearly indicated as the person who embedded the video and the source of the video is typically indicated on the video or in the description of the video added by the health professional.

(9) Do You Include Advertising on My Digital Office Profile?

We do not include any advertising on your Digital Office Profile page or allow instream advertising. We do have ads on our other content pages that are clearly labeled. This is how we support this business and are able to keep this service free for users and health professionals. Advertising is strictly controlled on the site. We never mix content with advertising. All advertisements and any promotional information are clearly indicated and easily identifiable as such, separated and distinguished from the editorial content. All advertisements are identified with the word "Advertisement." OrganizedWisdom adheres to strict standards and only works with premium brands and agencies.

(10) How Does OrganizedWisdom Promote and Enhance Doctors' Reputations Online?

One of our main goals is to promote doctors and health experts online. In fact, we believe that doctors who are sharing their wisdom publicly online are heroes online, and we want to do everything possible to make them even more well-known online so that one day we can inspire ALL doctors and health professionals to follow suit. More specifically, we promote the resources they share with their patients in their Health Libraries and make them indexable by Google, Yahoo!, MSN, and other search engines. We optimize the Doctors' Digital Offices so those searching on outside search engines will find them and the health information associated with the profiles. Links the the doctor's practice site, Facebook account, etc, are prominently displayed. Links to the doctors' sites, blogs, and resources important to them are sent out through our emailed Health Updates daily. Finally, we provide each expert with a personalized Profile that they can control, which highlights their awards, achievements, accolades, and links in an effort to make their online contributions searchable and discoverable by millions of people.

(11) How Are Badges Determined?

Health professionals with Digital Offices on OrganizedWisdom are eligible for badges and subsequently are placed on Top Health Lists. See the Health Expert and Advocate Badge Lists. When the Digital Office Virtual Assistant sets up the health professional's Digital Office, a badge(s) is assigned at that time. New badges may become available at a later date. If a health professional with a Digital Office thinks he or she should be awarded another badge, please use our Contact Form to place the request.

(12) What Is "Get a Badge" on My Digital Office Profile, and Which Do I Choose?

For those with a Digital Office Profile, we encourage you to place an OrganizedWisdom badge on your website to link your readers to your OrganizedWisdom profile in much the same way that you might link to your LinkedIn Profile. The "View My Profile" badge is applicable to all.

(13) Do I Need to Enter Into an Agreement With OrganizedWisdom to Have a Digital Office Profile?

There is no agreement to enter into with OrganizedWisdom for us to create a Digital Office for a health professional. When a user requests a Digital Office or claims a profile, or subscribes to Health Updates, he or she does agree to our Terms of Service. OrganizedWisdom uses Twitter's API, as do thousands of other sites and media distribution channels, to post links shared publicly through Twitter to their Activity section of their Digital Office.

(14) Does OrganizedWisdom Claim Intellectual Property Rights on the Content I Write, Upload, or Share?

OrganizedWisdom does not claim ownership of content uploaded to health libraries, tweets, RSS feed text, blog posts, articles, or other content on third-party sites that are posted on or linked to from OrganizedWisdom, nor does OrganizedWisdom take responsibility for or endorse this content. The content in health professionals' Activity Streams currently is posted from the health-related links they share on Twitter. Blog posts and articles are NOT published on OrganizedWisdom's website. OrganizedWisdom links directly to the content source pages that experts and advocates with profiles share in their social media streams.

Content in one's Activity Stream may come from his or her Twitter profile. As is clearly stated in Twitter's Terms of Service, the content tweeted (ie, submitted, posted, or displayed) through Twitter is the sole responsibility of the person who originated the content, and the content is able to be viewed by other users of Twitter and through third-party services and websites. As is stated in Twitter's Terms of Service, the person using the service retains his or her rights to any content submitted, posted, or displayed on or through its services. Those who submit, post, or display content through Twitter's services grant them the rights to make this content available through their API and any and all media or distribution methods, including the OrganizedWisdom website.

(15) How Can I Make Changes to My Digital Office?

After you verify your email address and have logged in, you can customize your Digital Office to share what's the most important to you like your recent publications, your professional information, patient resources, and links to your work. Click on the "Settings" link, and you'll be able to enhance your professional information. In the link section, you can add links that are significant to you.

(16) How Do I Claim My Profile? And What Does Claiming Allow Me to Do?

You may claim your Digital Office Profile by clicking on "Claim Your Profile" under the photo on your profile. You'll be asked to login to your Twitter account, so we know it is you. We never have access to your login information on Twitter. After claiming, you'll be able to edit and customize your Digital Office Profile. See FAQ #15 above for more information on editing or customizing your profile. If you do not want a profile on OrganizedWisdom, you can request to opt out via our Contact Form.

(17) Are Complementary and Alternative Medicine Practitioners Considered for Digital Office Profiles?

Complimentary or alternative medicine (CAM) doctors and health professionals are assigned a CAM badge with their profession badge(s). For example, an MD practicing functional medicine or integrative medicine is assigned a physician badge and a CAM badge. A doctor of chiropractic is given a chiropractor badge, doctor badge, and a CAM badge. All doctors (eg, MD, PhD, DPT, DDS, DC, EdD, PsyD, DO) are given doctor badges. OrganizedWisdom's medical review board reserves the right to determine whether or not a particular profession or person who requests a Digital Office Profile will be given a profile.

(18) How Can I Remove My Digital Office Profile?

You can request to have your Digital Office Profile removed simply by clicking the “Claim or Remove Profile” link under your profile photo. Or you can submit your request using our Contact Form.

(19) Does Being on a "Top List" Mean that OrganizedWisdom Recognizes the Individuals as Top Experts in Their Career Fields?

OrganizedWisdom does not rank or grade the career expertise of any individual, group, or business or services provided. A title such as "Top Physician" or "Top Dietitian" is given to those with active Digital Offices. Many health professionals with profiles on OrganizedWisdom are trained professionals and may be experts in their fields. Being on a "Top List" (eg, Top Doctor, Top Nurse, Top Patient Expert) does not imply that OrganizedWisdom is rating someone as an expert in their career field, area of training, or self-professed area of focus.

(20) Does OrganizedWisdom Support the Viewpoints of Those With Digital Office Profiles on OrganizedWisdom?

The views and opinions expressed by health professionals on OrganizedWisdom do not necessarily reflect those of OrganizedWisdom or its employees. OrganizedWisdom does not endorse, support, or guarantee the completeness, accuracy, or reliability of any content or communications posted directly to OrganizedWisdom or from outside services (eg, Twitter), nor does OrganizedWisdom endorse any opinions expressed on third-party sites linked to from OrganizedWisdom. OrganizedWisdom does not necessarily endorse the links to outside sites, the information attributed to an individual curator, or the information accessed from OrganizedWisdom by hyperlink. OrganizedWisdom recognizes the fact that various opinions and opposing views are presented by those with Digital Office Profiles or the sites linked to from OrganizedWisdom. See more specifics in our Terms of Service.
