Healthcare Social Media Week in Review: October 8th, 2012

As a new generation of web savvy physician enters the healthcare community, so does a technology and social media savvy patient.  This week’s healthcare social media in review takes a look at five articles that touch on the new ePatient/ePhysician dynamic and how they’re changing the makeup of healthcare.

  • The website Medical Billing & Coding brings us an interesting article on how hospitals are using Twitter and Facebook in the community.  The article explores 50 different ways hospitals and the healthcare community are engaging over social media.  50 Amazing Ways Hospitals Are Using Facebook and Twitter
  • A wonderful article from Co.Exist about a new breed of patient called ePatients.  By being hooked into the digital and online world, these patients are changing the way an old generation of healthcare is delivered.  An interesting quote from the article “In 10 years, the idea of going down to your doctor’s office for a visit is going to feel as foreign as going to a video store to get a VHS tape”.  Could ePatient Networks Beome the Superdoctors of the Future?
