Abstract: The trend of open collaboration has led to innovation across multiple industries. For decades, big pharma has been known as conservative and slow to change. Today however, there is a growing movement toward open access and crowdsourcing scientific information to accelerate research and development. Patients are no longer just research subjects or data providers, they are problem solvers participating in a global community of stakeholders. Online physician communities are breaking down competitive barriers in the name of patients.
