Social networking for doctors: CMA launches Asklepios
The Canadian Medical Association (CMA) will be presenting Asklepios at an opening talk at the Medicine 2.0 conference in Toronto, on Sept 4th. Asklepios is described as a social networking site for Canadian physicians, medical students and residents in Canada, "which will be a very significant development for enabling the use of web 2.0 technologies by Canadian doctors (...) Asklepios is an online community that allows physicians to make new contacts, get advice from colleagues, and collaborate with physicians all over the country.". The talk at Medicine 2.0 presents an early first look at Asklepios.
