HealthCare 2.0

Bumped into Sermo the other day. Sermo is currently only for Doctor's, but seems like it is the beginning of what might become an onslaught of social networking healthcare sites. They say:

"Why consult with one colleague when you can consult with thousands instantly?"

and offer functionality such as reviews on prescription meds as well as voting systems.

And their consumer side is coming soon. It should be interesting to watch healthcare get into the game and see if the network collective intelligence is something that ends up being a positive thing for average people trying to get a handle on the already confusing world of treatment.

I have a bunch of Doctor’s in the family, I am going to see if they can get into it (being from Canada and all) and give me more of a poop.
