This is a very good idea. I think it would work, and will be a great way to get doctor help and tips without having to schedule a visit and pay every time. Good idea and presentation. Excellent site design. Very nice work !!
Very good all around

The working demo was really nice. This group implemented a similar WordPress system, as another group did, but this group's site looks cleaner and more contemporary. The group didnt do a great job at presenting because I feel like not every member had something to say.
I think There was more work put into this project than was presented. Therefore it wasn't appreciated as much I don't think. Good work.
good presentation, nice website

Prototype worked very well

Anonymous feedback can be detrimental as the patient could lie since there would be no way to track who said it. No consequences for their actions. Would you limit this to prevent the same user posting anonymously (even at varied times)
Well done!

The site clearly took a long time to create and looks like it is functional and works as intended.

Excellent idea. Loved the design! Great job!!!!

Good idea

Description: This project will feature a social network for doctors. Some of the site tools will be EMR upload or transfer, chat with your doctor, view anonymous solved cases, doctor forums and and general health tips. The reason we believe our project will be successful is because of the features. We believe eventually one day there will be a website where you can view everything about your medical history instead of beating around the bush at the doctors office.

Team: Dietrich George, Mitchell Angus, Orlando Lorie, Cory Wilson, Johnathan Jones, John White, Roger Newsum


Project Outline

1. Project Introduction/Description
  • This project will feature a social network for doctors. Some of the site tools will be EMR upload or transfer, chat with your doctor, view anonymous solved cases, doctor forums and and general health tips. The reason we believe our project will be successful is because of the features. We believe eventually one day there will be a website where you can view everything about your medical history instead of beating around the bush at the doctors office.

2. Team
  • Dietrich George, Mitchell Angus, Orlando Lorie, Cory Wilson, Johnathan Jones, John White, Roger Newsum

3. Main Deliverable (what will you produce at the end - describe - is it a software program, an app, a website, a service, etc.)
  • (Cole’s)The end product will be a prototype social networking site that allows collaboration among health professionals. Features of the site will include health tips, doctor exclusive forums, anonymous patient feedback, and chat sessions between patients and medical professionals. Another feature we hope to implement is a mock anonymous E.M.R. Upload.

4. What will the Main Deliverable do (how does this solve the problems you have mentioned in your intro)
  • (Cole’s)The main deliverable will provide a central web location for interaction among patients and medical professionals. The anonymous patient reviews of physicians will enable the doctors to learn from their patients. The general health tips will serve as a reminder and informer to users of the site about every day things they can do to promote their personal health. The chat sessions will allow for interaction among doctors and patients to provide advice on symptoms as well as feedback to the doctors.

5. Competitors to your product/service (what are others doing? any similar services, any related services - DO SOME RESEARCH)
  1. MyMedPort:http://www.mymedport.com/ -classifieds , vendor collaboration
  2. IBM Patient Empowerment System : patient drug cross check for medical warnings, patient to patient medical questions
  3. Sermo: physician to physician site,
  4. Ozmosis : same as Sermo
  5. DoctorsHangout.com : physician to physician and medical student to physician site
  6. StudentDoctor.net : primarily for medical students
  7. MomMD: mainly for women, doctor to medical student site
  8. WebMD Health Exchange: patient to patient, evidence based medicine, expert advise

6. Reasons why your product/service beats your competitors or offers something different
  1. Mock E.M.R. Upload, this will show the real benefits of E.M.R.'s and create motivation for adoption among physicians as well as provide patients with understanding of E.M.R.'s. If patients understand E.M.R.'s they will recognize the benefits they offer provide the push for doctors to adopt them.
  2. Anonymous patient feedback: this will provide doctors with information about how to improve the services of their practices from administration issues, billing, as well as serve as a platform for patients to state what they expect or expected from a doctors visit.
  3. View anonymous solved cases: this will provide patients as well as physicians as a database of records of successful or unsuccessful treatments or remedies that patients have used. This will be especially beneficial in creating a demand for more evidence based medicine among health care professionals as well as patients.

    • Prior Social Website Development Experience.
    • Some Graphic Design skills.

10. Who will benefit and How!
  • Doctors and patients will benefit from this. Doctors who are stumped on what to diagnose a patient with can collaborate with other doctors, preferably the patient’s specialist. Patients also benefit with this because it lets them become more knowledgeable of the doctor, where they went to medical school, the fellow physicians who they can recommend their patients too.

11. Sample product/service - demo - feasibility of product/service or MOCK design
  • I think service is feasible to create. It will appear similar to facebook or myspace in appearance but with features designed specifically for the Health Industry.
  • The most difficult part of the service will be getting doctors and patients to use it.
