how the new generation of doctors and e-patients use social media
Dr Mesko is my “go to” source for health care social media

Last week, I got an invitation to speak at the Central European University about how the new generation of doctors and e-patients use social media. I also described how crowdsourcing works in medicine.
As there were only health economists, economists, lawyers and business people in the audience, I received some great questions. It was particularly interesting as these people had a good picture about healthcare but did not know much about social media.
Q: Is there a site where patients can track their own conditions and meet each other? It would be a great idea.
