Open innovation networks are one key to improved care

roved quickly and doctors have seen a dramatic, rapid increase in the number of patients in remission.

Translate the success to the entire population and it means 10,000 new children in remission, without new drugs and without spending huge amounts of money (and lots of time) on research and development, according to the researchers.

Networked collaboration offers opportunities for patients and care providers to share their experiences, but these stories will be complemented by real data on care and outcomes. The researchers say combining and sites' performance data will allow providers and patients to see not only what others are doing, but how care is improving.

"Right now, it is painfully slow to get medical information and new discoveries into practice," said Margolis. The reason, he says, is because doctors and patients may operate in virtual silos which hide their information. Networked collaboration allows participants to share more easily so that others can see, learn, and get healthier.

Social media infrastructure

The new research will take advantage of a social media platform being developed by Lybba, a California-based non-profit whose mission is to educate and empower people to lead healthy lives. Lybba is headed by Jesse Dylan, a cinematographer who created, among other things, the "Yes We Can" video in support of Barack Obama that was seen by 30 million people through YouTube in just a few weeks during the 2008 presidential campaign.

Lybba uses social media to allow users to share experiences, opinions, comments and questions. The networking will include blogging, photography, video, secure messaging and instant messaging.

Social networks are not new to health care populations. Today, many support groups for patients and/or parents exist on the Internet. But this will not be simply peer-to-peer networking as exists now. (Previous research by Cincinnati Children's examined potential problems of teens sh
