Medical Social Media

If you're working on pharmaceutical or medical malpractice litigation, keep in mind that social media sites tailored for doctors and other medical professionals may be a valuable social of evidence.

Doximity is a networking service. A study by Becker's Hospital Review shows that 70 per cent of American physicians (and 90 per cent of fourth year medical students) have Doximity accounts.

Sermo is another private social media site which was established to allow doctors to report on the adverse effects of medication and medical procedures. It also functions as a forum for practitioners to seek advice of others in the community on their patients' conditions. Sermo frequently polls its members on medical issues.

Figure1 is another site that allows physicians to share opinions on the medical conditions of real patients.
