Welcome back to another edition of Healthcare Social Media Week in Review. We’ve hand selected five magnificent ideas that have been swirling around the HCSM community. This week we take a look at healthcare policies and social media, patient reviews, and Pinterest. Here is this week’s Healthcare Social Media Week in Review!
- The website Mashable, which covers all things in the mainstream social media world had a great article about tweeting and doctors. With some great Pew data and a focus on three keep HIPAA points, Mashable has put together an interesting piece titled This is Why Your Doctor Can’t Tweet You.
- There is always a good amount of doubt on how useful social media is to the healthcare sector. Then, The New York Times or another large publication writes a piece about social media and then there’s a scramble engage. If you or your practice is really interested in getting the ball rolling on Twitter, this article is a great start. It even has a link to a primer by Dr. Madanick! How Twitter Has Helped Me Become a Better Doctor
- Kathi Browne regularly hosts Google+ Hangouts with some really engaging content. In this week’s Hangout the topic was policies for healthy social participation, and it’s up in full on YouTube! Policies for Healthy Social Participation
- We recently hosted a webinar on reputation management and patient reviews, and this article helps confirm some of the topics we discussed. John Luginbill from THE HEAVYWEIGHTS wrote an interesting piece that talks about embracing reviews and making them work for you! Why Doctors Shouldn’t Be Afraid of Yelp Reviews
- In the healthcare social media world, Pinterest seems to get left out of the regular discussion. Over at MEDCITY News they’ve a great article on how the healthcare community is and could use the social platform Pinterest.
