According to Wikipedia, dialysis is a process for removing waste and excess water from the blood, and is used primarily as an artificial replacement for lost kidney function in people with renal failure. It affects a lot of people and caregivers as well who are constantly looking for new and quality resources online, but as usual, this is a huge challenge.

This is why it is a pleasure to announce the launch of our curated collection of social media channels and resources focusing on dialysis!

Based on the advice of our advisory board, we decided to make a tool that lets users upload peer reviewed studies discussing the use of social media platforms and approaches in medicine & healthcare. We invite beta users to help us test the database and based on the feedback we would love to improve it; also make it pretty as soon as the features work. Many thanks!

You need to be registered on Webicina and get the flag that lets you upload studies. To get the flag, please send us your user name.

We believe a large and comprehensive database is needed in order to use evidence-based approach when implementing social media tools in medicine.

53 users filled in a survey I created with the goal of getting information about the online habits and demographics of users of Webicina.com. Of course, it is not representative, but only giving a little glimpse of what the community is like.

They are literally from all over the world:



They are hardcore Internet users:



Mostly medical professionals:



They think the Internet plays an important role in medicine:



Their favorite community site is Twitter:



Maybe this is why they heard about us there:



They found the content of Webicina valuable:



Basically they think we cover all important topics (a word cloud about the topics they would like to hear more about):



And half of them would love to use our information aggregator as an embedded microsite on their own website:

The newest curation by Webicina focuses on the very best of medical social media resources from Australia! We hope you will enjoy that!
