It’s very important for medical journals and groups to be open to the opportunities web 2.0 provides. BMJ group made a good step and created Doc2doc, a medical community site. But to be honest, I don’t see now why and how it’s different from other community sites. Why should I join? According to their mission statement:
doc2doc has a range of tools to help you network with other doctors on a professional and social level. On our clinical forums you can discuss interesting or puzzling cases and discuss any aspect of medicine. You can also create your own forum and build a community around your own interests or place of work. You can find people you work with, used to work with or want to get to know through our people search.
- People search to find friends and colleagues and others that you want to get in touch with. You can search by the person’s real name and by their job title.
- Blogs: To start your own blog, you have to contact them first.
Nothing new, nothing innovative. But at least, they made another important step towards health 2.0
