SPOTLIGHT: Just ask Dr. Wiki


A group of Cleveland Clinic physicians have launched a new Wikipedia-style site they've dubbed "Ask Dr. Wiki."  Unlike the original model, Ask Dr. Wiki includes not only text--such as clinical notes--but also multimedia content such as images, EKGs and angiograms. While the public can access the site, it's aimed at medical professionals, who are credentialed before they can post content. However, critics complain that since the founders are primarily cardiology experts, bogus information on other topics could slip by, leading to inaccurate decisions by professionals and the public.
