Healthcare Social Media Week In Review: February 13, 2012


Evaluating Internet Health Information: A Tutorial from the National Library of Medicine

This is a great resource for the patient that is always coming in with questions about the article she found on Wanda’s Natural Health Blog that says antibiotics will mix in her stomach with the gum she swallowed seven years ago and give her cancer. It’s a simple slide show on criteria one should use to evaluate the credibility of healthcare websites. Unfortunately, it is a painfully slow moving presentation, great for older patients but for anyone under 65, they might want to download the files or read the article version instead of watching the presentation. See tutorial.

However, he left out the fact that MDWebPro has a FREE online tool that will search the top medical review sites for your name, organize the information and send you e-mail alerts when new reviews are added. A Google search of your name is great but who has time to sort through every place your name (or someone with your name) shows up and who’s going to remember to do it on a regular basis? Read more.
