www.healthcareitnews.com brings us an interesting infographic showing how healthcare professionals are using social media. The data are collected from a survey with 1229 hospitals responding. We think you will find the results interesting if not all that surprising.
As the graphic shows, transparency is driving the demand for healthcare social media. Our interview with Howard Luks brings out this same point (emphasis added).
HJLuks: I get no compensation for my work on-line. I truly believe that patients need more access to good, un-biased information and not the commercialized nonsense that’s out there.
Enjoy the graphic and happy socialmediaizing!
