Open-Source Medicine

"There are thousands of promising drugs for treating diseases that are simply not getting studied or brought to market because they are derived from natural or common substances that can't be patented. The dirty little secret of the pharma business is that even a miracle cure for cancer won't be invested in if it can't be defended as a proprietary product."
A brilliant idea by Nova Spivack

Healthcare & Web 2.0 - the NIH pitch

"..We have witnessed a rapid increase in the use of Web-based 'collaborationware' in recent years. These Web 2.0 applications, particularly wikis, blogs and podcasts, have been increasingly adopted by many online health-related professional and educational services.."

A good summary by NIH

Web 2.0 in the medical field is not just for us, doctors, nurses and others (professionals in the health sector).Its also tools and applications for the consumers, our patients.
We always have to remember that high quality practice begin from close, positive and intimate relationship between the two sides of the table.
One aspect is excellent information tools for our patients.I started to talk and mention this aspect when i covered for you healia, the med search engine.another tools for the consumers that i mentioned already are the blogs by consumers for consumers. (dont forget the blog for diabetics i mentioned at one of my last posts).
Second aspect are tools /web applications that help the patient to manage his health or can create and manage better communication with the doctors.Its important for us, the professional side of the medical world to know about these tools. We can advice our patients to use them. Its our interest too.
A new example for such tool is for the diabetics among us.
Everyone can open a secure private information site.It has an access from everywhere at any time. Its give the options to track glucose levels. There are options to record the medications , foods and etc.We understand the power of such records to understand and investigate the data.Its also has an educational power.
Here the abilities list that is written on the home page of sugarstats :
1.Track blood sugar glucose levels
2.Track medication intake (Injectioons, Oral, Inhalers)
3.Track food intake
4.Track physical activity
5.Share your statistics with your family, friends or health care professional 6.Access your info from any modern web browsers
7.Have a clear and simple interface to view your statistics
8.View important graphs and trends created from these statistics

So, lets go and evalute this application.
Lets start use the huge power of the web 2.0 world.

I know the next tool im offering you is not totally new , but bookmarking is a significant tool in the web 2.0 world that is worth writing about it. Im sure that still, a lot of you, doctors and professionals dont no a lot or even at all about this tool.
Bookmarking give you the option of making your own webdirectory by making your own tags/lables library. you can mark websites, blogs and even specific webpages. It is a huge force that the web 2.0 gives people to arrange their knowledge and their own historical remembernace.
Try first
Im offering googles booksmarking just because i give them the seniority respect , but there are more others.

I'm not your judge ,i'm just try to open your minds and expand your horizon a bit more than googles frontiers.
Try - the medical search engine.

Its both to consumers and professionals.You have subsections for searching, so if you are a Med Pro you can get results that fit for your demands.

Worth to compare it with Google.
