In case you missed it, CrowdMed, a website for solving medical “mysteries,"  is covered by Boston Magazine <> in a story that was picked up by MedCity News <> today. Patients submit their undiagnosed conditions online to be studied by CrowdMed’s “medical detectives”—medical students and professionals as well as "regular people who enjoy solving medical mysteries.” The experts are “ incentivized" through a system of point-based recognition. Patients pay monthly fees for different levels of membership and can offer experts a monetary reward (e.g., $400) for solving the case.
