How can we use social media or other applications to improve medicine? or should we?

Just a question I thought would be neat. Open to all answers.

    Secondly ask yourself EVERY TIME - who has a bias here? Who profits if it goes this way?.

    Read a book called 'Deadly Spin" to get a sense of the traps and tactics against the truth in America.

    Repeal the right of corporations to be 'PERSONs' .

    These would be a great start to a more level playing field and to the restoration of 'freedom for all"

      Aug 23 2012: I'm sorry, but I don't understand how this helps make medicine social. I'm talking about using social media applications to enhance the medical field.
      • Aug 23 2012: Do you mind modifying the text in the original question to include this? I too had the impression that you meant socialized (as in "socialism") healthcare.
        • Aug 23 2012: Me too, there is absolutely nothing that points at social media.
