The internet helps to reduce information frictions. In finance (see here). All over the place. And in medicine: For patients who seek a more reliable diagnosis, Crowdmed offers access to thousands of “medical detectives,” professional and otherwise. Here is how it works:
- Complete our online patient questionnaire and upload your medical information, all of which can be done anonymously.
- Decide how long you want your case to be online and how you wish to reward the volunteers who help solve it.
- CrowdMed’s patented prediction market technology then collects and filters diagnostic and solution suggestions from the Medical Detectives who participate in your case.
- You can invite our entire community to help, or limit participation to our top case solvers.
- At the end of this process, you’ll receive a detailed report containing the best suggestions to discuss with your doctor.
- Payment is a snap, and if CrowdMed results aren’t accurate you get your money back.
