Once you took medical questions directly to your doctor, who advised, tested and treated you. Today, not only are we turning to the Internet for everyday medical information, we're also generating our own health data: using a smartphone, for example, to investigate a child's ear pain or monitor blood pressure. We're learning from our peers online how to cope and find new treatments. Our doctors can keep our records electronically, accessible to us through a patient portal. Some of us can make video visits with doctors, who can offer diagnoses and treatment plans via computer or smartphone.

"There is still a gross disconnect between stakeholders" says Lorena Macnaughtan (@L_Macnaughtan) in the second part of her thoughtful review of digital health's evolutionary path.
"Without taking each of them seriously, we can’t answer the fundamental questions: what is the role and what are the rights of lay-people in their own (and others) health?"
The medical content in Wikipedia receives substantial online traffic, links to a great body of academic scholarship and presents a massive opportunity for health care information. James Heilman and Andrew West present their findings on the wider editorial landscape looking to improving the quality and impact of medical content on the web. Data points to the enormous potential of these efforts, and further analysis will help to focus this momentum.
