eHealth on Facebook? How Social Media Influences Healthcare?

eHealth on Facebook? How Social Media Influences Healthcare?

+++ This is a refresh from the original in 2011, the topic is still top of mind: How will Healthcare embrace social media? For the most part they just advertise and push marketing materials “using” social channels. But the future of healthcare IS social. And two years after this post, one of the biggest tracks at SXSW is healthcare. +++

This is a new concept for me. A recent post about my ear pain and poor diagnosis from my first doctor visit generated this exchange with a friend and professional colleague.

heathcare on facebook - what will we do with ehealth?

The wave of the future. A friend *hears* I have an ear ache and reaches out to make sure I am getting appropriate care. And now I am asking for a referral.
