MedTech I.Q.

The Cutting Edge of Medical Technology Content, Community & Collaboration

The Medpedia Project is a long term, worldwide project to evolve a new model for sharing and advancing knowledge about health, medicine and the body among medical professionals and the general public. The Project provides a free online technology platform to any individual or organization that can benefit from its use, available at www.medpedia.com. Users of the platform include medical and scientific journals, medical schools, research institutes, medical associations, physicians, hospitals, for-profit and non-profit organizations, companies, expert patients, policy makers, students, non-professionals taking care of loved ones, individual medical professionals, scientists, etc.

As Medpedia grows over the next few years, it will become a superior resource of health and medical information without charge in multiple languages to anyone worldwide with Internet access. The information in this clearinghouse will be easy to discover and navigate, and the technology platform will continue to grow as more uses are found for it.

In association with Harvard Medical School, Stanford School of Medicine, Berkeley School of Public Health, University of Michigan Medical School and other leading global health organizations, Medpedia will be a commons for the gathering of the information and people critical to health care. Many organizations have united to support The Medpedia Project.

Thanks, Cheryl. I've put the word out about Medpedia on Twitter - with a link to your blog post here. I'm fortunate to connect with approx. 1,400 friends there who read my posts, so I'm optimistic that awareness of the project will grow quickly.

Colleagues,

Thank you to Cheryl for informing us about this exciting new development. MedPedia has the potential to grow into the WikiPedia for medicine. As a result, MedTechIQ has become one of the first 50 groups in the world to join this effort. Please see the invite below if you would like to join the MedTechIQ group on MedPedia.

ENJOY!
