Unlike other professionals, doctors and healthcare practitioners might not be regular on social networking sites like Facebook. Yet connecting with their peers and colleagues can help them develop valuable insights and critical thinking detrimental to solving complex health issues. So, to enable medical professionals to communicate with like-minded people, multiple networking platforms were formulated. These networking sites were explicitly developed for doctors.

Medical practitioners already share case details, practice data and other insights on Facebook, WhatsApp groups and Google hangouts. But these options are subject to data mining practices. So even if you are on generic social networking sites, you might be missing out by not utilising the exclusive networking apps designed for healthcare practitioners. Doctor centric social networking sites offer greater connectivity, crowdsourcing information and better research opportunities.
