Earlier in the summer I posted about InfoMed MD, a website that provides personal answers to medical questions. Users complete a short, interactive questionnaire after which the system provides useful advice. There are a variety of InfoMeds available and the list is growing. Some examples include:
- Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening
- Contact Lens Irritation
- Erectile Dysfunction
- Stroke Symptoms
What I especially like about the site is that the output is well thought out and informative. The information is much better than the typical handouts you get on these topics.
Last time I looked the site was charging $6.95 per InfoMed, and even though that’s not unreasonable I thought it would deter users. That’s changed now. With only a few exceptions the InfoMeds are now free. A few are listed at $6.95 and the Vasectomy InfoMed is $20.
