Sermo: Another “MySpace for Physicians”

Kevin, M.D. just announced Sermo as a new sponsor of his site, noting that CNNMoney has called it “MySpace for Physicians”.

From Sermo’s “About” page:

Here, physicians aggregate observations from their daily practice and then – rapidly and in large numbers – challenge or corroborate each others opinions, accelerating the emergence of trends and new insights on medications, devices and treatments. You can then apply the collective knowledge to achieve better outcomes for your patients.

Your voice can be now heard. Exchange observations and knowledge with each other in real time; gain insights from colleagues as they happen instead of waiting to read about them through conventional sources; discuss your new clinical findings, report unusual events, and work together to dramatically impact patient care.

Of course, this made me think of Healtheva.
