Wondering how health care professionals are using Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and other social sites? Then you don’t want to miss a series of Health Care hangouts on air (live discussions) I am broadcasting every third Sunday of the month.
In October, a Health Care Hangout took place to discuss how physicians, hospitals and health care organizations are using Twitter, tweetchats, lists, and more. Some really smart people joined me to talk about what they and others get out of Twitter:
Dana Lewis is a Health and Digital Strategist currently working with Swedish Medical Center. Dana is also the creator and moderator of the weekly tweetchat #hcsm (healthcare communications and social media) conversation.
Howard Luks, MD is a Clinical Advisor for Orca Health and Advisory Board Member for Mayo Clinic Center for Social Media. Howard has developed a large audience of fellow physicians as he tweets about health care, social developments, and shares many useful links from blog posts to new health care changes.
Ed Bennett is the Director of Web Strategy at the University of Maryland Medical Center. Ed has many years experience in the digital world and tweets about social media in health care.
Mark Browne MD MMM is a Physician Executive and the new Chief Medical Officer for Covenant Health. Until recently, Mark tweeted primarily about health care reform, quality measurements, and other issues he addressed as a consultant. With his recent role change, we will discuss what new directions his Twitter presence could take.
The live broadcast will appeared on my YouTube channel under the Featured tab and is now viewable as a recorded hangout (see below).
