Who is Sick?

Given healthcare's dilatory acceptance of IT it may be customers who force the pace. I received an email about a newly launched website: www.whoissick.com. It uses Web 2.0 technology to generate user content displayed through a simple Google Maps interface.

The website started in 2006 after the founders' poor experience with health services in the US with a mission to "provide current and local sickness information to the public - without the hassle of dealing with hospitals or doctors". The founders believe in the power of user generated content about local sickness.

Note: FHIT is not accountable for the content of other websites.
