Two terms I have encountered recently are “collective consciousness “ and crowdsourcing. Collective consciousness has been around for some time, and now with social media it takes on a new power magnified almost infinitely as social media platforms integrate and share data.
A new form of venture capital has emerged as a result of the internet and social media, called ‘kick starter funding” and “crowdsourcing’. Thus far little of this has been applied to HIT, or healthcare in general. It could be very valuable for developing health resources in underfunded projects, away from conventional rules.
