Defining Health 2.0: It’s All About the Consumer

Frankie Dolan has a great post about the definition of Health 2.0 and how it differs from Medicine 2.0.

“I have come to think of Health 2.0 websites as being those that provide services geared towards the consumer, and Medicine 2.0 those geared towards services for the medical professional”

eDrugSearch is directed at the consumer, so by Frankie’s definition we are a Health 2.0 company.  And a good thing too since I have a real passion for using technology to empower the consumer.

What do you think would make a good Health 2.0 application for consumers?  What is missing out there?

    Thanks Cary for the compliment on my Health 2.0 post. Great to see your ‘real passion for using technology to empower the consumer’. Your site I think shows that passion and I am sure it will go on to be a huge success, since this is the kind of information consumers really want – information as to where they can confidently go to buy the drugs they need, with unbiased price comparisons.
