Online Health Info, version 2.0?

Online health care sites and symptom checkers - sometimes a patient's best friend, sometimes a doctor's worst enemy. But just as everything else has evolved and grown on the internet, maybe the newer versions of these systems deserve a look. I, for one, would love to find something that rounds out patient information without multiplying stress. My biggest complaint is that most of these sites read like a legal disclaimer, and this list of possibilities makes most patients (rightfully) freaked out.
