Peer-to-peer Healthcare: Crazy. Crazy. Crazy. Obvious.

Patients and caregivers know things — about themselves, about each other, about treatments — and they want to share what they know to help other people. Technology helps to surface and organize that knowledge to make it useful for as many people as possible.
