ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the social networking site med3q.com. The site is the first free online network for physicians, their staff, and health-conscious consumers that targets a healthcare niche in a contemporary way. Developed by doctors and CEOs, the author reports that the site addresses a variety of points in a doctor's practice, including a lack of time to learn about better business practices, the desire to share new medical developments and interact with other medical professionals, and the need to help patients make important lifestyle changes for better health. The network provides a secure and private online community of credentialed healthcare professionals to share business, practice, career, health, lifestyle, and industry information, as well as facilitate peer discussions.
