IT could help the NHS - Doh..

The latest report on how utilising IT could help save the NHS cash in the long term and lives in the short term. http://tinyurl.com/69342my It seems a little churlish to suggest that Homer Simpson might have a word for this report - but more appropriately the word might be better directed at healthcare decision makers. The word is not an acronym for the Department of Health BTW.I realise that Healthcare IT as it relates to the NHS in particular, is an…See More

An interesting lesson in forethought

 One of my colleagues Tanya Holloway forwarded this interesting link to a pharma marketing attempt at an 'expose' on Astra Zeneca's efforts to create a social community for one of its anti depression formulas. http://pharmamkting.blogspot.com/2011/02/astrazeneca-hosts-take-on-depression.html It's an interesting read, mainly highlights the need for indepth knowledge of the compliance framework for…See More

"  Thanks for posting.  Not a surprise that CVD is pulling in the biggest numbers.  If they did the same thing for US, it probably would show similar breakouts. "

Social's all about local.....

Just a quick thought here. Having witnessed a stunning lack of information and advice on disease awareness and treatment options from a diabetes care, and more recently through efforts to get flu jabs for my children - Social media has a huge role to play in providing local communities with the content and contacts that will surely ease pressure, tension, fear and anxiety from a healthcare perspective for families. There are quick and easy wins for healthcare providers to add value and become…See More

UK NHS Post code lottery

Interesting news today concerning a report released by the Government that shows that diabetes patients aren’t getting the checks required to prevent their condition leading to amputations etc. It also says that standards of care vary enormously from region to region within the UK.http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/8158059/Postcode-lottery-of-NHS-care-revealed-in-full.htmlNot enough is…See More

FAT TAX - Draconian measures on their way

According to right-wing national newspaper the Daily Mail (reporting on research from the Lancet)Seriously! The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the World Health Organisation (WHO) experts are involved in this study, backed by the Food Standards Agency.Last year, the British Medical Association voted narrowly against a fat tax on chocolate and in the US, Obama is considering the same for sugary drinks.I'm looking forward to seeing how this debate progresses.See More

"Thanks for your thoughts. I agree with you. For the consumer, all the health information available can become overwhelming. These stories, such as the vaccine study, often offer false hope to patients. As a former medical producer, I agree with your…"

Palmer Reuther commented on Blaise Hammond's blog post 'You Don't Say' Friday!
"good points Blaise. There is a perception that you can jam a whole lot of information into a multimedia piece and that it will all be consumed and remember but the opposite is actually true - people have to be very selective when building a video"

'You Don't Say' Friday!

Really? you don't say....good content is good content. churn is churn. Nothing new here, move on please. Tips: if you are making video, realise that viewers attention spans are finite. Continuous partial engagement = continuous partial attention. If you are making video - make sure to communicate what its about - people searching might find it helpful!!!From Healthcare Social Media Networkers Linkedin Group:According to Manhattan Research adoption of online health videohas increased…See More

Roche leads the way?

I was entertained by the team at Roche and their efforts to embrace social media in a responsible, yet dynamic fashion. The active recruitment of social media scouts from within the organisation has been a success to date.http://www.inpharm.com/news/digital-pharma-roche-asks-employees-be-social-media-scoutsFrom the article:“Even if you are not an official online spokesperson, you are one of our…See More
