re: Medicine Must Get Social
Crowdsourcing a diagnosis is an interesting idea. Getting multiple perspectives- from both doctors and medical experts but also patients- can add up to a more accurate diagnosis, but where is the line drawn? How much can doctors actually rely on media for these critical decisions, as opposed to using it solely to improve the patient resources out there?

re: Medicine Must Get Social
I'm working on a follow up piece about #FOAMed (free open access medical education) which reminds me a bit of the open educational resources trend I've been writing about in higher education. It's also intended as a rebranding exercise for social media advocates in medicine, where the term "social media" connotes frivolity but the need for continuing education is something everyone understands.

In #FOAMed, the emphasis is on doctors connecting with each other through social media more than public outreach
