SOCIAL MEDIA SOLUTIONS
Social media is emerging as an influencer of choices being made about care providers. It covers versatile digital phenomena like blogs, social networks, image and video sharing websites. The common factor between these media is that they are user-generated and highly interactive.
How are patients currently using social media?
Virtual support groups share information and encouragement. Patients also use social media for obtaining expert advice, often in the form of a medical blog, but also for direct doctor-patient communication. Patients and their families use e-community sites to store their medical records.
How can care providers like you use social media?
You can grow your base of patients, build relationships with them, study trends in your field, provide content and video-based information, network with and recruit medical professionals and build a strong online identity.
