  • We are all patients. Too bad we’re not all patient. Imagine the wonderful world we’d live in if that were the case.

    I’m ever amazed at the power of what social media can offer. This year will be even a bigger year for these kind of healthcare related success stories in healthcare.

    • I agree completely… that why I frequently have posts like this that creep into my blog stream… http://goo.gl/pNEc8 . But every time I post something like that I am reminded by others of the progress that we have made. Adoption rates are increasing. Medical conferences are hosting social media how-to’s, etc.

      At least we appear to be moving in the right direction?!?!?

  • Thank you for your insight. I am so glad to see social media has success stories in health care. I have recently jumped on the social media health care bandwagon and truly hope to see it grow and flourish. As a Registered Nurse and Community Health Advisor my role is to utilize social media to support family caregivers. The blog Caring@Home is dedicated to helping family caregivers provide care, cope and get through another day. I am always looking for input; feedback and suggestion.
