Dana Gulick commented on Shannon's blog post The Full Scope of HCSM
"Thanks for flagging, Shannon! What got me was one nagging little line at the end of the piece that I wouldn't have thought much of until I saw a similar post from Kevin M.D.: physicians having to combat negative web perceptions as a result of…"

Tanya Holloway commented on Shannon's blog post The Full Scope of HCSM
"I really enjoyed reading this article Shannon, particularly the social media examples of Army of Women and physicians braving Facebook to communicate with and help patients. I think we are all guilty of self medicating via the web but with so much…"

Shannon commented on Cheri Keith's blog post How will Storify impact healthcare?
"I agree with Tonya. In issues like those outlined, quality of the information should be the most important factor. Secondary to that, in my opinion, would be timely ness. it would be great to see a tool that could aggregrate from specific,…"

The Full Scope of HCSM

 This is a great article that explores the many ways that patients can use social media in a wide range of ways – symptom research, physician location, support. It also touches on sites that help to pair patients with clinical trials they might not have found otherwise. Long gone are the days of a simple WebMD search to find out what that lingering headache may be. Social media is no longer just a means to gain health information, but a viable way to find treatments, treatment centers or even…See More

Mayo Clinic is #Winning - Interesting recognition, certainly deserved

 Well, this isn't exactly the type of synergies one would typically expect, but it certainly shows the collaborative powers of social media. An potential intern competing to become Charlie Sheen's social media guru named Mayo Clinic as one of the most innovative organizations using social media today. While this might be odd company for Mayo to keep, it is certainly a true statement. Lee Aase makes a good point. With healthcare typically seen as lagging in the social space, it is great to have…See More

Shannon commented on Sarah Willey's blog post Social Media & Physicians-- Err on the Side of Caution
"This will become an even bigger issues as more young, savvy social media users enter the workforce. A recent example comes to mind from a nursing home here in Mass. Two nursing students took videos of one the patients in a mocking manner and posted…"

Shannon commented on Lucie Smith's blog post Mobile Heath for Developing Regions
"Definetely interesting progress. Especially when you think of how remote many areas of Africa and with healthcare professionals at a premium. It might not make sense everywhere, but it is great use of the technology for areas that need it."

Shannon commented on Shannon's blog post Private Practice Meets Community -- And not on prime TV
"From a patient to patient perspective I think it makes a lot of sense. Especially as it relates to expereinces with the doctor on a relatable issue. I am still a little skeptical about obtaining direct medical advice from the web. For now,…"

Jackie Hanley commented on Shannon's blog post Private Practice Meets Community -- And not on prime TV
"This is definitely more progressive than anything I've come across personally. It would be really interesting if they could make it specific to medical specialties, so you really could connect with patients facing the same issues."

Private Practice Meets Community -- And not on prime TV

A New Jersey Plastic Surgery Practice has formed an online community to help share information with their clients and more importantly, give them a platform to engage with other patients undergoing similar treatments and procedures. The practice looks to create a strong bond with current and new patients, using multiple social platforms including Facebook and the practice blog. It’s an…See More

Anna Gueldenhaupt commented on Shannon's blog post Doctor's Wary of Social Media
"This has always been a really interesting topic to me. As I often wonder how patients speak to their physicians after they've 'googled' their symptoms online. After all physicians are still the experts, having gone through years and…"

Doctor's Wary of Social Media

The following looks at the reasons why physicians are wary of social media as well as how some of the more progressive are using tools like Facebook, Twitter and the like to engage with their patients. In a recent presentation to our Company, Kevin Pho of KevinMD fame touched on this. Kevin is among the most progressive in his field, but still warns of letting the engagement get too personal. There is certainly a fine line…See More

Assessment of Healthcare's Use of Social Media - Room for innovation

The following article looks into how healthcare organizations are using social media. While many hospitals have joined the fray, using a myriad of channels, they reported use still seems to be at a basic level, with many just focusing on pushing out content, as opposed to creating engagement. Should be interesting to see if this trend starts to shift in 2011 as more and more become accustomed to social media participation.This piece applauds the organizations doing that have the most innovative…See More

The article, of course, also examines the personal use of social media by health care professionals and warns of the impact this could have on patient privacy. The article offers some good tips…See More

Shannon commented on Erica Frank's blog post Patient Privacy in an Increasingly Connected World
"Regulatory bodies should take a closer look at the cross section of HIPAA and social channels and hospitals should definetly not "assume" employees will not use those channels, intentionally or accidently, to share patient info. I, for…"
