OMFG!! As, if there wasn’t enough in the regular local news for my fellow obsessive compulsive hypochondriacs and germ-a-phobes to be scared of, Who is Sick? is on the scene to scare the shit out of you. With an ingenious web maps smashup with the ability for individuals to report their illnesses, this site is one of a kind.
Here’s what they have to say for themselves:
Who Is Sick was started in 2006 with a mission to provide current and local sickness information to the public – without the hassle of dealing with hospitals or doctors. With a strong belief in the power of people and a faith that user generated content can be extremely valuable, our team set out to create an entirely new system for tracking and monitoring sickness information.
Given the relatively slower adoption of internet and “web 2.0′ technology by much of the healthcare industry, our team of healthcare professionals, technology entrepreneurs, mothers, fathers, and caregivers set out to create a simple, user-friendly, and valuable website for the average consumer. We are currently building out our team and expanding our technology breadth across new and exciting areas of healthcare with Who Is Sick as our first offering. Stay tuned for more!
I have to say the idea is genius, but as a total germ-a-phobe its something that I will have to personally try and stay away from. (darn OCD)
For everyone else, Who is Sick? could help you steer clear of all those damn sick people!! 😉
SRSLY though, great site guys. I can’t believe I am only finding this just now!!
