Patients trust their doctors to diagnose them accurately — and quickly. But when a patient has a rare condition or non-specific symptoms, getting that real diagnosis can become a costly process that takes months or even years.

Maybe crowdsourced medical diagnosis could do a better job. That’s the proposition of CrowdMed.com, which harnesses the combined savvy of more than 20,000 doctors, nurses, medical students, and other sleuths — including some with no formal healthcare credentials — to offer suggestions patients can bring to their in-person doctors that might help expedite the time it takes to find a correct diagnosis.
