Chris Sicuranza commented on Jenna Caswell's blog post The world's most influential doctors...according to Twitter!
"Twitter is definitely a great outlet for insights from credible doctors. My concern is just that though: credibility. Until there are better methods of verifying users, supposed gurus and would-be-doctors can help shape a misinformed pictured."

Chris Sicuranza commented on Cheri Keith's blog post Does your hospital tweet?
"As we march forth toward social media integration, I keep thinking of my Noni who refuses to touch a computer... I think the last line of the article really summarizes my concerns well: "But [the media coordinator] is still skeptical of the…"

Chris Sicuranza commented on Sally Bain's blog post Measuring Patient Care via Social Media
"It's great to hear that some of the power has been leveled due to social media. I think that not only rating hospitals is necessary, but rating physicians will become an important tool for transparency and accountability - something sorely…"
