Healthcare Social Media Week in Review: February 25, 2013

It’s been a good, busy week at MDWebPro.  We released our new Patients Review eBook, had the opportunity to interview KevinMD about his new book on social media and online reputations, and have been prepping for our upcoming webinar on monitoring patient reviews. In this week’s Healthcare Social Media Week in Review, we have five great articles that show how the rest of the healthcare community has been just as busy!

  • Attracting and engaging with new patients is something that healthcare social media lends a wonderful hand to.  Dr. Mike Woo-Ming lays out four great tips for using HCSM to attract new patients.  His thoughts on what information to post are really interesting.  4 Tips for HealthCare Social Media to Attract New Patients
  • It’s always exciting to watch as things “click”!  In an article from Healthy Debate in Canada, it appears hospitals are realizing the potential of HCSM and the patient experience.  Not only does the article layout some interesting thoughts, but there is a great discussion in the comment too!  Hospitals Being to Recognize Social Media’s Potential to Improve Patient Experience
  • Improvements in healthcare related technologies can come in many different shapes and sizes.  Armed with a large grant, The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore will be using tablets to help improve its hospitals ICU.  Intensive Care Gets Safer with the Help of Tablets
  • Dealing with patient health information in a digital age is a regularly discussed topic, both on HCSM and in the community.  What you can and can’t say about a patient’s health information is protected under HIPAA.  A news release on a new rule protecting privacy and patient information has been making its rounds on Twitter.  Check out the news release from the Department of Health & Human Services.
  • If you’re looking for a wonderful guide on social media and your online reputation, go out and grab this book.  Co-authored by Kevin Pho and Susan Gay, this guide has been making quite a splash in HCSM.  Take a look at our interview with KevinMD about his new book.
