Yesterday I posted a short piece from Mark Graber, MD about an intriguing new website:
CrowdMed.com <http://www.crowdmed.com/> is a new online startup that uses the 'wisdom of the crowd' to suggest the correct diagnosis for patients with unresolved symptoms. The project is the brainchild of Jared Heyman, an internet-entrepreneur, who thought of the idea after his sister suffered through an undiagnosed illness for over three years. Cases are submitted by patients for a small fee, and anyone can register as an "MD" (medical detective - cute, eh? No license required) to suggest a diagnosis or vote on the suggestions already made.
