Mission and Principles


To deliver quality health information resources cost-effectively and efficiently to health care practitioners, researchers, policy makers, and post-secondary institutions.

Our Principles

  • HKN will be cost recovery.
  • Pricing will be fair and consistent across all subscriber sites.
  • Subscribers will benefit from group purchase discounts, and will not pay more than they would pay if they licensed outside the HKN group purchase.
  • New subscribers will not be added to the disadvantage of existing subscribers.
  • The above principles will be applied to products from each vendor. Some variations in detail may occur depending on the pricing model used by the vendor.
