If you want to be part of QuantiaMD, you better know what you're getting yourself into. Yes, it's a social network of physicians, but according to Eric Schultz, chairman and CEO, it's social in the sense that you interact with other physicians, but in a professional manner within a gated community--in other words, true peer-to-peer.
According to Schultz, only clinicians who pass a rigorous validation can participate. "People interact using their real names, it's a professional network and because they use their real name the behavior is very professional and the interaction is professionally focused," Schultz told InformationWeek Healthcare. QuantiaMD is free to participating doctors.
QuantiaMD offers interactive content and has a faculty of more than 540 experts who create interactive cases and short concise presentations where physicians can talk about the merits of a diagnosis or the availability of treatment methodologies.
