Social Media in a Nutshell for Health Providers

Vic Phillips has been publishing interviews about success stories in social media and now he invited me to be his guest. We produced a podcast as I answered some of his questions. Click on the image below to access the podcast.

I have been following Dr. Mesko’s ideas on social media for quite sometime now. Healthcare compared to other industries has been slow to adopt social media. Providers may or may not be comfortable with social media on their own terms. But, when using social media in healthcare settings things become more complex. Healthcare providers cite not having time, not having enough clinical data to justify the benefits, and not trusting technology,  as being factors for not being willing to incorporate this tool into clinical practice.
