A week or so ago I put out a simple tweet… do you believe there would be interest in an MD Tweetchat?
The initial Initial response was positive.
Physician adoption on twitter and in social media in general is at the low end of the curve. But it is trending in a positive direction. Many physicians are simply lurking and figuring out if this is something they are interested in or something they *must* figure out. Some dive right in and have been seen on the #hcsm chat hosted by @danalewis. Many have questions…. so I thought this might be the proper venue to get them to engage, inquire and learn. Physician newbies could learn from the *pros*, and patients and other heath care providers could provide useful feedback and content too.
@Doctor_V took a slightly different take in his post this morning. I understand where Bryan is coming from and I share a lot of his conclusions…. but
WE are all patients…. and the more people (physicians, health care workers and patients alike) we have engaging– the better… no?
