CURIOSO, Walter H.; PROANO, Alvaro  and  RUIZ, Eloy F.. Gastroenterology 2.0: useful resources for the gastroenterologist available on the web 2.0. Rev. gastroenterol. Perú [online]. 2011, vol.31, n.3, pp.245-257. ISSN 1022-5129.

The term Web 2.0 refers to the use of Internet applications which enable the users to share, participate and collaborate together on information. The objective of this study is to check different applications that use Web 2.0, which could help the gastroenterologist in his daily practice. The applications that will be checked include: blogs, microblogging, RSS, podcasts, wikis and social networks. "Gastroenterology 2.0" represents the applications, services, and tools based on Web 2.0, which are of easy use and easily accessible - to consumers, patients, gastroenterologists and other health professionals, as well as researchers. Although several studies have shown the benefits these technologies have on the medical practice, it is necessary to conduct further studies to demonstrate the use of these applications on improving health.
