Combining the best of web-based medicine

It struck me while reading this article on PatientsLikeMe, ScienceRoll’s post on PharmaSurveyor and VentureBeat‘s post on health 2.0, that combining patient experiences like PatientsLikeMe with online doctors like AmericanWell must be the next step in medicine 2.0 / health 2.0. Merging the best features of these two concepts seems to me to be a killer (sic) combination. Question is how long it’s going to take the medical community to realize this.
