In late 1998, a group of national medical societies convened to share perspectives on consumers’ rapidly growing use of the Internet to obtain healthcare information. Aware of the power of the Internet and the lack of quality standards within the medium, the group pursued a joint venture, which resulted in a consolidated, powerful, and trustworthy source of medical information. Collectively, through Medem, this “critical mass” created by the societies has succeeded in becoming the most comprehensive and trusted source of healthcare content on the Internet.”The physician finder service is run by the American Medical Association.
