Twitter in HealthCare
Several articles have recently come to my attention that I wanted to share with you about how Twitter is being used by physicians, hospitals and other healthcare providers.
American Medical News has an article discussing twitter as a tool to increase the web presence of your practice, connect to patients and network with other providers.
Chris Thorman, who normally blogs about electronic medical records at Software Advice explores Twitter as an epidemiology tool for tracking diseases.
Dr. Shock is interested in how Twitter is being used in educational settings by students and lecturers.
Twitter's reputation as a mundane socializing tool for updating friends has never been my experience and I am pleased to see the creative use of this tool expanding. What ideas do you have for using Twitter in healthcare?
