Throughout history, doctors have always needed to learn from one another to advance medicine, but medical knowledge wasn’t easily shared.
Additionally, what doctors learned in school or via clinical trials didn’t often reflect real-world medicine. Real-world medicine means patients don’t fit into neat textbook or clinical trial categories. Real-world medicine is messy, it’s complicated. It often requires multiple specialists with varied experience.
Today, at the touch of a button, doctors can post real life cases and ask for help from hundreds of peers. That’s medical crowdsourcing, and this will revolutionize real-world medicine as we know it. Learn more
SERMOsolves, our most innovative and unique medical crowdsourcing feature uses the power of community and combined medical wisdom to enable doctors to collectively solve tough cases and get help with diagnoses, often direct from the exam room in via their mobile. In real time, doctors can get second opinions and advice from hundreds of peers.
Soon, SERMOsolves will enable doctors anywhere in the world to ask real-life medical questions and get real-life answers from thousands of their colleagues, building a living, breathing, evolving and searchable medical knowledge bank.
Doctors often claim that many of their patient cases fall in the grey zone, where they would like the support and advice of their peers. Ten to 20% of all patient cases are misdiagnosed, resulting in healthcare inefficiencies and needless patient suffering.*
A social network for doctors is not simply about camaraderie. It allows doctors to get much needed clinical advice from their peers, which in turn improves patient care, saves lives, and needless to say, saves healthcare costs.
Our goal is to revolutionize real world medicine by enabling doctors to access the wisdom of their peers in their own countries and around the world, across borders and geographies.
When physicians feel comfortable dialoguing without repercussions, they ask for help, they share knowledge, they admit mistakes -- and together advance the universe of medical knowledge.
