Crowd-sourced Health Management

October 15, 2010

MAKE Magazine reports on CureTogether, an online community that empowers patients by crowd-sourcing health management. Members of the CureTogether community can track their health data, share information about symptoms and treatments, and connect with other people suffering from the same illnesses.

CureTogether’s growing database of medical information is great for patients, researchers and medical professionals. But how can we democratize this to make it accessible to people in the developing world? There, less access to healthcare providers makes relying on others all the more important. The use of distributed biosensors can empower this (see post from Oct. 13!).
