Exchange Home Page

By now we hope you’ve read enough to be very curious about our interactive new WebMD Health Exchange, and you want to join in.

Ready to find an Exchange that suits your needs? Maybe get a suggestion or two for good places to start? Then come see our community home page.

Click here to go straight to the live page. Need a sneak peak first? Take a look below. Here is the full shot:

On the Exchange home page, we’re giving you a few ways to find what you need.

Starting at the top you’ll notice the scroll – a movable visual directory of exchanges. These are suggestions we would like you check out. We’ll be updating this selection periodically.

Just below these offerings is an explanation of the two types of communities we offer.

Moderated Exchanges are some of your favorite message boards transformed into places where you will have expert support, member interaction, share tips and resources and more.

Member Exchanges are groups that you and your fellow users create and grow. To start, we’ve brought over some message boards that were just perfect for this, (we’re looking at you, pregnant people and diet clubs) but we hope you’re going to make more).

Now, the giant box in the middle of the page is the index, in alphabetical order, of all the Exchanges. This section will update as new Exchanges are added. Browse by condition or wellness topic, or type in what you’re looking for in the search box.

And below the Browse box are more areas to explore – you can click to create your own public or private Exchange and a reminder about our awesome expert blogs. Some of the same health professionals you’ll interact with in Exchanges have blogs, too. After you’ve immersed yourself in our Exchanges, blogs should be your next stop.

So there you have it, your new WebMD Health Exchange home page. Get to it!

Comment on this blog post and ask your questions about the New WebMD Health Exchanges on the Welcome Exchange.
