Scientific researchers commonly collaborate beyond their specific institutions, and sometimes even their field, with peers around the world studying related subjects and solving adjacent challenges. Physicians, on the other hand, are typically limited to their immediate practice or physician colleagues for input on complex cases or insights into changing clinical trends. G-Med, an international, social media platform exclusively for physicians, is seeking to facilitate similar opportunities for crowdsourcing and collaboration that scientists already experience.
Today, G-Med has built a network of over 120,000 doctors from 50 different countries representing 60 different specializations. Members of the G-Med community have the ability to receive insight from peers around the world on cases they are managing, shortening diagnosis times and improving diagnostic accuracy. Participation in expert panels allows the community to discuss evolving trends and gain insight from colleagues outside of an individual specialty.
In addition to diagnostic and educational value, widespread clinical collaboration holds promise for identifying clinical trial participants and monitoring the spread of infectious disease. To learn more about G-Med and its distinction from other medically-focused social media platforms like Doximity and Sermo, Medgadget spoke with G-Med CEO Ilan Ben Ezri.
