NEW YORK, May 18, 2021 – TheMednet (https://www.themednet.org/) is a free knowledge-sharing platform for physicians that provides answers from top medical experts to questions that have not been addressed by guidelines or published research. A true community of physicians helping each other treat patients, theMednet works to ensure that patients receive the best care by shrinking the knowledge gap between community physicians and academic medical centers.
“Physicians have questions with almost every patient encounter yet have limited means to answer those questions other than through their immediate colleagues and existing network. It’s that reason why half of clinical questions go unanswered,” said Dr. Nadine Housri, Assistant Clinical Professor at Yale School of Medicine and Co-Founder and Chief Medical Officer of theMednet. “We provide a platform to help physicians get answers to questions where no clear answer otherwise exists because in this day and age your geography or proximity to colleagues shouldn’t keep you from accessing the best medical minds in the world.”
Details of Dr. Housri and her esteemed colleagues’ virtual presentation is as follows:
• Novel Opportunities for Interdisciplinary Care and Teleconsults in the Era of Digital Health
• Care Delivery and Regulatory Policy, Health Services Research and Quality Improvement

TheMednet was founded in 2014 by siblings Nadine Housri, a Radiation Oncologist and Samir Housri, a software engineer and technology entrepreneur. The Housri’s were inspired to create theMednet when their father was diagnosed with prostate cancer. TheMednet began as a platform for oncologists and expanded to Rheumatology in 2020. Today it has approximately 14,000 member physicians, including more than seventy-five percent of the nation’s oncologists and sixteen percent of its rheumatologists.
TheMednet is a free knowledge-sharing platform for physicians that provides answers from top medical experts to questions that have not been addressed by guidelines or published research. By shrinking the knowledge gap between community physicians and academic medical centers, theMednet works to ensure that patients receive the best care regardless of where they live. Questions on theMednet are assigned to the most qualified experts, and answers are peer reviewed by colleagues. In addition to its web-based community forum, theMednet offers a daily newsletter, an app, and a blog. Through collaboration with NCI-designated comprehensive care centers, theMednet’s tumor board program allows physicians to share discussions from their institution’s tumor board.
