The goal of social prospecting is to steer the user community into defining the guidelines for self care and lifestyle management. Using an evidence based approach, social prospecting combines the interest in keeping personal or family health care records with the momentum of user-generated healthcare (or health 2.0). The personal healthcare record containing self-documented and self-collected information, or observations, can be used when a symptom or concern arises to identify a retrospective pathology. Coalesce of individual pathologies, related to a particular symptom or concern, can correlate a generic pathology or pathway in the self care domain. Using health 2.0 technologies, the user community can augment these self care pathways with advice, suggestions and recommendations and collectively define self care guidelines.
