Abstract

A method and system is disclosed for extending review of effectiveness and side effects of medications by building a private social network with a central cognitive agent for people with similar/identical medical conditions. The central cognitive agent uses information directly from prescriptions and feedback from patients to find coincidences and similitudes between treatments with the objective of performing a real time comparison and provides an analysis of long term efficiency of the medication.

Method and System for Extending Review of a Medication's Effectiveness and Side Effects by Social Collaboration Disclosed is a method and system for extending review of effectiveness and side effects of medications by building a private social network with a central cognitive agent for people with similar/identical medical conditions.

The method and system allows people to provide medical records as well as personal experience pertaining to a treatment followed. The method and system, then, analyzes and compares the information in order to determine long term efficiency of respective medical procedures. Thereafter, the method and system builds unbiased real life records concerning the medical treatments for mutual and public benefit.
