Bertalan Mesko, MD, is a firm believer that social media applications and services will revolutionize medical education, as well as communication between physicians and patients. Mesko's interest in technology and health care led him to create a university course focusing on bringing the web into medical practice and to launch Webicina, which offers social media tutorials, guides and other tools to help physicians navigate the web. In this video, Mesko talks about the growing movement of participatory medicine and the importance of digital literacy for physicians and patients.
This fall, Mesko will speak at the Medicine 2.0 conference at Stanford. The three-day event begins on Sept. 16. More information about speakers and the deadline for submitting abstracts is available on the Medicine 2.0 blog.
