U of Virginia doctors developing medical internet

Newsplex.com, July 24, 2014

Doctors at The University of Virginia Medical Center are looking at a new way to treat patients using technology they already have at their fingertips. Dr. David Stone with the university's Center for Wireless Health, describes the "medical internet" as Google for caregivers; a cyberspace destination where they can look up conditions or aliments and see how doctors, around the nation, or even world have treated them. The database of de-identified patient care information could help doctors diagnose patients in real time.
