HealCam: Chatroulette in Medicine
The Team of Medgadget just launched HealCam, the medical alternative of Chatroulette, the 2010 internet sensation. Obviously, they need the critical mass in order to make it work. The idea is great, the only problem might be the willingness of patients to reveal their real identity online.
If you would like to talk to others with the same condition as yours, go to the site, press start and choose a health category, say diabetes, and you will be connected to a random person with diabetes. When your conversation is over, you press next and you are automatically connected to another person with diabetes. You can talk to as many people as you wish. We envision the site as a large meeting place, where people can exchange information, get or give moral support, and learn from others. No registration required to participate in the video chats. So please check it out, and spread the word!
