Accessing crowdsourced cohorts for health studies is a significant emerging opportunity that could have a positive impact on public health research, particularly as outcomes shift to the personalized, preventive medicine of the future. Health social networks have grown to become some of the largest aggregate patient registries and offer cost and efficiency benefits for study recruitment and operation by both traditional researchers and citizen scientists. Here, a model is proposed for extending crowdsourced studies beyond small-group experimentation to large-scale intervention-based research studies that are professionally run and scientifically rigorous, in effect creating a new form of contract research organization.
