Sermo, a fastest-growing community created by physicians, for physicians.

E-mail Print PDF
SermoSermo is Latin for conversation. Here, physicians aggregate observations from their daily practice and then - rapidly and in large numbers - challenge or corroborate each others opinions, accelerating the emergence of trends and new insights on medications, devices and treatments. You can then apply the collective knowledge to achieve better outcomes for your patients.
Gain insights from colleagues as they happen instead of waiting to read about them through conventional sources; discuss your new clinical findings, report unusual events, and work together to dramatically impact patient care.

On Sermo, there is no cost to physicians to participate. In fact, Sermo also enables physicians to be financially rewarded for their astute observations and clinical insights. The source of the rewards is financial institutions who access a stream of fresh and actionable information on emerging trends and market-changing events in healthcare. A cash reserve is set-aside to compensate physicians for observations that are deemed highly relevant and valuable.
Sermo's patent-pending technology is the first and only technology to authenticate and credential physicians in real-time. Sermo authenticates each physician when they register. This technology is the key to strictly maintaining a community exclusively for physicians and dramatically improving patient care.
Because the information discussed on Sermo is used to dramatically improve patient care. Sermo operates as a research mechanism, harnessing the collective power of physicians' thinking. The power is in the numbers no single physician acting alone can impact healthcare as dramatically as hundreds or thousands. On Sermo, physicians can be heard by these institutions and work together with them to make change happen.


How it works.

Start posting and voting, and see what physicians around the country are thinking.

Navigating your way around Sermo is easy. The postings, created by physicians nationwide, represent the frontlines of medicine. When you want to share a medical observation, you create a posting. If you want to provide feedback on a posting, you vote. And if you want to add to the discussion, you do so in the comments sections.

Share your medical observations.

Click on "Post to Sermo" in the upper right corner and you'll see a short, simple form in which you can add your posting.

Share your knowledge.

If you want to vote on a posting, choose from one of the answers to the right of the screen. If you don't see an appropriate answer, you can add one. Just be sure to craft it in a manner that enables others to vote on it. Personal experiences and insights are extremely valuable to the Sermo community and should be added to the discussion as comments, not answers.

At the present time, Sermo is open to physicians licensed to practice in the United States. In the near future, we will be creating ways for non-physicians to access the Sermo community. If you would like to be kept up-to-date on our progress and be the first non-physician to join Sermo when the time comes, just go to the Join Sermo section and click on Non Physician and complete the contact information.
