In recent years, social networking services like Facebook and Twitter have affected many sectors of the global healthcare industry, from doctor-patient communication to medical research to hospital management. I have just registered for a webinar which will explore the implications of social networking technology for the future of medicine
Topics will include
- How patients are using social networks to learn more about their conditions and seek treatment information
- Crowdsourcing medical research: how social networks can facilitate data collection.
- The networked care center: how social media is changing hospital management.
- How healthcare professionals can manage social media risk.
