Sermo Designed exclusively for physicians, Sermo provides its more than 260,000 members with clinical tools and resources embedded in its discussion forums. Doctors crowdsource insights and collaborate on patient cases and other medical topics to improve healthcare delivery and patient outcomes.
"Members have access to over 35% of the US physician population to engage in discussion on any healthcare topic in an open collaborative environment. On a typical patient case, this can easily result in 200+ years of combined medical education converging on an individual patient case within hours at zero cost," says Jon Michaeli, SVP of global community and marketing. "Also on Sermo, physicians can participate in market research studies for honoraria. Sermo pays out over $20 million in honoraria to doctors on an annual basis."
