A Conceptual Model to Understand the Factors that Drive Individual Participation in Crowdsourcing for Medical Diagnosis

Kaushik Ghosh, Kabir Sen
2015 2015 48th Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences  
This article is a 'Research-in Progress' that examines the role of Web-based platforms in driving participation of individuals in crowdsourcing services for medical diagnosis.  ...  In healthcare, assisted by collective knowledge of a large group of individuals, crowdsourcing is enabling prediction of disease outbreaks and diagnosis of rare medical conditions.  ...  Next, we discuss methods for data collection and suggest techniques to test the proposed model.  ...
