DrSocial® is the world's most advanced site for medical reviews, enabling patients to plan and obtain the perfect medical visit. DrSocial offers advice from real patients.
The founder, Dr. Niccolò Trentanove, was perusing the internet in 2011 to find a pediatrician for his children. He wanted to find a caregiver who was: (1) a physician with highly regarded credentials; (2) an expert in his children’s specific medical conditions; (3) a pediatrician who provided excellent outcomes according to both patients and the clinic; and (4) the doctor had to be kind.
Dr. Trentanove identified that none of the websites provided him with enough information to entrust his child’s health to the physicians with the expectation of excellent treatment. In addition, he noted a high prevalnce of significant bias in the physician evaluations.
Dr. Trentanove envisioned a website that would amalgamate all of the aforementioned components, permitting planning of the perfect doctor visit. He envisioned a community where patients are able to find doctors and read high-quality, descriptive information about them. Dr. Trentanove envisioned that this website, DrSocial.org, would fund and improve healthcare while facilitating the excellent provision of it. DrSocial.org has been founded on the principles of improving the doctor-patient relationship and helping find cures and better treatments for diseases.
Dr. Trentanove strongly considers that good ideas are useful when they materialize. Therefore he decided to incorporate DrSocial Ltd. and started working on the project in early 2012 with co-founders Lorenzo Taddei and Claudio Teri, who are experts in the field of search engine marketing and civil engineering, respectively.
At DrSocial, our mission is to:
(1) Help patients plan the perfect physician visit and ultimately improve patient outcomes as measured by multiple domains across multiple specialties.
(2) Improve the patient-physician experience through improved coordination of care. This will begin before the doctor visit and continue after the visit.
(3) Create a sustainable healthcare environment with aims to help find a cure and better treatments for diseases. Create a sustainable healthcare system by funding medical research.
We achieve these goals:
1. We will help patients find expert physicians through our review system. We offer patients valuable health information prior to their physician visit.
2. By promoting a website that allows the health community to have constructive feedback that is supplemented with valuable health information. We ask that patients post their reviews using an online identifier. Doctors will have the opportunity to provide a polite reply to the reviews through public and/or private messaging. The private reply will be facilitated by providing the healthcare provider with means to send a message directly to the reviewer’s online identifier. For all matters pertaining to physicain reviews, the patient’s name will not be utilized, but only the online identifier. In no case will the online identity of any patient be permitted to be disclosed to the physician or any third party. If an online identity is demanded by a law enforcement authority, the information will not be disclosed by staff, but the matter will be referred to legal counsel.
3. We will further improve the experience by providing valuable health information prior to visits with the physician.
4. DrSocial is unique in that our company funds medical research by transforming the concept of revenue generation from that of advertisement-driven patient engagement to that of spontaneous fundraising. We achieve the transformation of the standard business model to that of community-driven, sustainable healthcare through two steps:
STEP 1: We find partners that are affiliated with medical research associations or university departments who are willing to promote our services and share our vision.
STEP 2: We sign an agreement with the association and we donate $1.00 to the association for each person they refer that signs up on our website.
Referral from the university or research institute will be attributed to them through URL hyperlink analytics. Thus if someone visits the university, clicks on the DrSocial link, and then registers, we will register that and pay one dollar to the respective referrer.
Patients will also have the opportunity to inform us in writing through E-mail that they were referred from the organization. This might occur when a patient who attends the university clinic, identifies a DrSocial flier, and then signs up later from there. The university will still receive attributable funding from DrSocial.
When a patient registers with our website without referral by a research organization, DrSocial donates $1.00 to a research organization selected by our team. The research donations are routinely made at the end of the month.
We also have an additional tool, Best Doctor USA, which improves medical research by permitting the best doctors to determine where our donations are directed. Please visit the dedicated page for additional information.
DrSocial is unique because it is developed on the principle of fundraising for medical research, not advertisement-driven engagement. DrSocial will remain a free website where patients can find a good doctor, learn about medical conditions and help fund medical research.
Dr. Trentanove has led DrSocial from an idealistic representation of the perfect healthcare system to a multi-disciplinary patient-advocate team that is partnering with communities to help transform healthcare for themselves, their children, and future generations.
