Is your doctor into technology? I am sure, he will be interested to hear about the new collaborative online medical encyclopedia, called Medpedia. According to the rules, only doctors and PhD’s in biomedical and health sciences can edit the encyclopedia. Customers are given the uneasy task to suggest changes and participate in communities of interest.
This release of the Medpedia Platform includes three interrelated services: a collaborative knowledgebase (medical encyclopedia); a professional network and directory for health professionals and organizations; and communities of interest in which medical professionals and nonprofessionals can share information about conditions, treatments, lifestyle choices, etc.
Prestigious medical schools like Harvard Medical School, Stanford School of Medicine, Berkeley School of Public Health, University of Michigan Medical School are contributing in various ways to Medpedia. The project is "funded and managed by Ooga Labs (www.oogalabs.com), a technology greenhouse in San Francisco".
