Sermo a Internet-based networking community for physicians to address professional and public health issues is going into partnership with Pfizer, a large pharmaceutical drug company. Wall Street Journal has an article about it:
Of course, Pfizer and Sermo will have to chat with the FDA first “to define guidelines for the use of social media in communications with health-care professionals,” as the companies say in their press release. Maybe the FDA gets Sermo access, too?
A while a go I tried to become a member but memebership is not open for European physicians. Now I am glad, saves me the trouble of withdrawing membership.
