I would like to share my favourite and ongoing projects with you so I can give you a proper introduction to Scienceroll.com.

Medicine 2.0 University Course: This is the second semester of the first university course that focuses on web 2.0 and medicine for medical students. Last semester, almost 50 students attended the 20 slideshows through 10 weeks and they filled a survey out before and after the course. I launched the second semester for English-speaking students (February – May, 2009). I’m open to launch the same course in Second Life.

      PeRSSonalized Medicine: A free tool to track medical information

      We’ve recently had a long discussion on Twitter about why many doctors are not open to these web 2.0 tools. There is no question, they don’t have enough time to use these even if they were designed to help them save time and effort.

      That’s why we’ve been working hard on Webicina.com to come up with a free tool that helps those users who cannot spend much time online (e.g. medical professionals). PeRSSonalized Medicine helps them track medical journals, blogs, news and web 2.0 services really easily and creates one personalized place where they can follow international medical content without having a clue what RSS is about.

      Webicina.Com

      Being up-to-date is crucial for medical professionals, but it takes time and effort. Sitting in a library with a few medical papers is not a proper solution any more. Learning to use an RSS reader is not that easy for those who don’t spend much time online.

      PeRSSonalized Medicine is a free tool that lets you select your favourite resources and read the latest news and articles in one personalized place. You can create your own “medical journal” and as we are totally open to suggestions, let us add the journals, blogs and websites that you would like to follow.

      perssonalized-medicine

      Click on “Personalize It” to hide the resources you don’t want to follow.

      You don’t have to register to use it, but if you want to make sure it will save your settings, you can register in a few seconds here.

      Now you can follow:

      • Medical journals
      • Medical blogs
      • Medical news
      • Medical Media including Youtube channels, Friendfeed rooms or Del.icio.us tags

      One more thing. The developer behind PeRSSonalized Medicine and the whole Webicina platform is Gergő Vargyai. Many thanks to him for his ownderful job!

      As always, we are open to suggestions so please let us know which resources to add to the database.

      Microblogging and Webicina.com

      I’m a real fan of Twitter, a microblogging platform where users can post messages containing only 140 characters. Discussions become fast and accurate while sharing information is easier than ever. That’s why we implemented a microblogging platform-like box into the main page so now I can share announcements and news about Webicina even more efficiently.

      Everytime you click on the main page, a new message will show up automatically.

      webicina-microblog

      Soon, we are going to come up with a free tool for physicians and we also have a big surprise for patients. Stay tuned! In 2009, we must get to people and help them understand why they need guidance in the medical field of web 2.0.

      Webicina.com is my service that aims to help medical professionals and patients enter the web 2.0 era by providing e-courses, consulting and personalized packages.

      I also made the list of available e-courses public:

      The Bridge: Do you want to change healthcare?

      Webicina.com is my service that aims to help medical professionals and patients enter the web 2.0 era by providing e-courses, consulting and personalized packages. Why did I launch Webicina?

      I envisioned a bridge. On one side of the river, there are patients who don’t know how to use the web, how to find health information online. I think NextHealth will be their best tool to use.

      On the other side of the bridge, there are physicians. Their best guide is Jay Parkinson and his Hello Health practice as he was the first really web-savvy doctor.

      Who will connect the two sides?  Who can become an efficient and valuable bridge?

      Yes, I hope Webicina will close this gap…

      When I talked with Jen McCabe Gorman, a prominent blogger at Health Management Rx, she envisioned this:

      Now I’m happy to announce Webicina is starting to co-operate with more and more organizations and communities. Just three examples, CureTogether, CareFlash and Ozmosis.

      And it seems it’s getting a serious coverage from the blogosphere as well.

      Let’s start educating physicians about how to use the web efficiently, let’s help patients how to find information online. Let’s reform healthcare! What is your view on this?
