Date:11/6/2008

The mission of Webicina is to build a bridge between medical professionals and e-patients by providing e-learning tools, personalized packages and online image building solutions. Webicina aims to help physicians make their online activity as efficient as possible and help patients how to find reliable medical information online.

Budapest, Hungary (PRWEB) November 6, 2008 -- "Web 2.0 for physicians and patients", that is the motto of Webicina, an online service focusing on how medical professionals of the 21st century can meet the expectations of e-patients and how patients can find reliable information and web 2.0 services about a specific medical condition.

E-patients are patients who try to find relevant medical information on the web; want to communicate with their doctors via e-mail or IM; share health stories in patient community sites and store their medical files online. They will change the way medicine is practiced and most of physicians are not ready for this challenge.

Webicina offers personalized medicine 2.0 packages that provide patients and physicians with all the web 2.0 tools they need to know about a medical specialty or medical condition. Patients who are interested in diabetes receive all the selected, quality blogs, blog carnivals, community sites, videos, slideshows, etc. focusing on diabetes in a digestible format.

It also helps doctors how to build a proper online reputation and the e-learning tools were designed to let them learn how to launch a successful medical blog; how to organize medical meetings in the virtual world of Second Life; and how to follow the medical literature more easily. Free e-courses are accessible without registration.

"We are sure web 2.0 can change the way healthcare is delivered and while the number of e-patients is growing rapidly, the number of web-savvy doctors is not, so we must help them to understand each other and be ready for the challenges web 2.0 sets up." said Bertalan Mesko, founder of Webicina.com.
