9 Body Language Tricks to Improve Your Negotiation Skills

9 Body Language Tricks to Improve Your Negotiation Skills | Clinical Integration and Physician Alignment | Scoop.it

Strong negotiation skills are hugely advantageous throughout one’s life, from the boardroom to the bar. These skills largely rest on your ability to back up your words with physical actions that exude openness, honesty, and confidence. This fosters trust and increases the other party’s desire to react cooperatively and reach agreement.

According to psychologists and a recent study from language experts Gengo, body language and non-verbal communications has a greater impact in a discussion than the actual words that you say.

7 Leadership Qualities You May Not Know You Have

7 Leadership Qualities You May Not Know You Have | Clinical Integration and Physician Alignment | Scoop.it

What does it take to be a great leader?

 

Once upon a time, birth order and socioeconomic status were considered powerful determinants in who would successfully climb the ladder.

 

Lately, though, the focus has shifted to personal qualities.

Guiding vision, passion, and integrity are well known leadership traits. But there are lesser known leadership traits, as well--in fact, some historically have been perceived as weaknesses.

 

These hidden traits can be developed and nurtured to help further your career and your role as a leader, at work, in your community, or in life in general.

 

See if you just might have some or all of these personal qualities that lend well to leadership:

Digitally Sick are back and have taken the opportunity to look at the three big hitters for digital health in 2014: Social. HCP communications and big data (with the exception of mobile health which needs a pod of it's own).

 

Social media is now almost passé but over the last decade has revolutionised all aspects of pharma communications from patient support to clinical trials. In 2014 we are still struggling with how we should communicate with HCP's and finally big data, or data, is now the most exciting frontier in healthcare, what are the issues and how can this be leveraged by pharma?

Apple iWatch Set to Launch This Fall Pending FDA Approval

Apple iWatch Set to Launch This Fall Pending FDA Approval | Clinical Integration and Physician Alignment | Scoop.it

The highly anticipated Apple iWatch is reportedly ready for launch; however, it is still awaiting approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA),  according to Chinese Media reports. Currently, the device is rumored to be shelved pending approval from the FDA certifying the iWatch as medical equipment due to its biometric sensors for heart rate, blood pressure and glucose level tracking features. While the FDA is ensuring the iWatch meets the FDA requirements, Apple is seeking patents for the product in other countries such as Mexico, Taiwan, Russa, and Japan (Miller/Inferse/6/23). 

Back in 2013, Apple hired former Nike consultant Jay Blalnik to gear up for the smartwatch and later meet with the FDA to discuss the product in December 2013. Over the weekend, 9to5Mac reported that Apple is partnering with professional athletes such as LA Lakers basketball player Kobe Bryant and Boston Red Sox baseball player Dustin Brown to test the iWatch. The athletes have reportedly signed non-disclosure agreements with Apple. 

The iWatch is slated for commercial launch this fall in October.  Quanta Computer, a Taiwan brand, has already announced that it will start making the iWatch next month and is expected to produce an estimated 50 million shipments within the first year in the market. If the iWatch does not get FDA approval in time, it is possible that the blood glucose level tracker may not be included in the first iteration.

During the keynote of the Google I/O developer conference today, Google Play Product Manager Ellie Powers announced a new fitness platform for digital health app and device developers, called Google Fit, that aims to help people better track their fitness goals.

 

Specific rumors about this platform first surfaced last week.

Google announced Google Fit just a few weeks afterApple announced its HealthKit platform for iOS 8. While Apple’s Health app could potentially integrate with — not only activity trackers — but also connected medical devices like glucometers and medication adherence apps, as the name implies, Google Fit seems to be focused squarely on fitness. Apple’s HealthKit was also developed with input from the Mayo Clinic and is set to be integrated with Epic Systems’ EHR.

How can we get students more engaged in units of study? What if we design our class so that they have ownership from the beginning of the unit? This post explores this issue, and although the focus is on social studies you could use the same steps in other curricular areas. What are the steps?

1. "Partner students and have them do a speed search on the topic." What can they find in 12 - 15 minutes? Let them generate a list of interest.

2. "Decision by debate." Change partners. Allow them 3 minutes to discuss and rank the topics by interest.

3. "Main characters." Switch partners again. In history you might be looking at key individuals, or key battles in a conflict.

There are five more steps that will help students learn to collaborate, analyze perspectives, co-create with you (as the teacher your job is to  make sure that all key areas are covered and help create the framework as well as providing additional input where necessary), and more.

This type of process allows the students to be engaged and have their voices heard from the beginning....a win-win situation in the classroom.

These would seem to correlate with Thomas Friedman's    "The world is flat" idea.  Basically we need to value and  respect all human beings as those  people at the bottom of the tree last century wont always be there:  

 

Emotional intelligence (feel things from others point of view).  Communication (learn to speak  another person's language). Problem-solving (Listen to and understand someone else's pain and joy); Team-working (the ability to liaise with others as humans who feel pain, cry, hurt just as you do).  

 

Basically the emphasis seems to be on humanity as one rather group rather than the superficial differences.  The idea is for human beings to leave the savannah.

Healthcare Consumers Actively Sharing Health Information on Social Networks, Survey Says | Clinical Integration and Physician Alignment | Scoop.it

Liquid Grids®, a Precision Marketing Platform for the Healthcare Industry, today released results from its survey of How Social Media is used by Healthcare Consumers. The survey, which was conducted in May 2014, showed that 85% of respondents would publicly share their health experience on social media to support others with the same disease.

The results of Liquid Grids’ survey also found that 80% of respondents share news articles about health. 30% of all respondents had shared a personal health experience in the last three months and there was no significant difference in the frequency of either negative or positive health experiences.

“Our research has consistently shown a correlation between healthcare and social media use,” stated Malcolm Bohm, CEO of Liquid Grids. “The results of this survey further underline how Social is becoming the new DTC as the industry moves to focus on the consumer.”

Facebook and disease forums were the preferred destinations accounting for 77% of activity. 54% of respondents reported posting in social media about others they are connected to. 68% report that they trust health information posted by people with the same disease.

87% of respondents were female (87%), of which 60% were aged 25 years or older. “80% or more of healthcare decisions at the household level are made by the female and these results underscore their participation online and represent an important target for the industry,” concluded Bohm.

FDA Looks to Urge Companies to Tweet Drug Risks

FDA Looks to Urge Companies to Tweet Drug Risks | Clinical Integration and Physician Alignment | Scoop.it

e FDA is looking into a new way to regulate drugs and medical devices—by using social media. The agency has drafted social media guidelines that would urge drug companies to use platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, to educate the public about the risks of their prescription drug or medical device.

The draft guidelines, which are currently under review by the agency, propose that companies be required to use the “character space constraints” on social media platforms such as Twitter to tweet the risks, along with the benefits, of a product. The guidelines also recommend that manufacturers include a link that takes readers to more information about the product. In the case of Twitter, that information should all be included in a single tweet.

The document states:

If a firm concludes that adequate benefit and risk information, as well as other required information, cannot all be communicated within the same character-space-limited communication, then the firm should reconsider using that platform for the intended promotional message.

If approved, the guidelines will become the first formal recommendation by the agency regarding manufacturers’ use of social media.

3 tips for nurses when using social media

3 tips for nurses when using social media | Clinical Integration and Physician Alignment | Scoop.it

Travel nurses would be hard-pressed these days to find an assignment at any hospital that doesn’t have some sort of social media policy in place.
A 2011 survey found that 87% of physicians used social media for personal use, and another 67% used it for professional purposes. Nurses are likely to have similar usage, perhaps more given the passage of time since the survey took place. Of those physicians polled, 35% say they have received friend requests from patients or a patient’s family member, and 16% say they have visited a patient’s online profile.
Boundaries are certainly blurred when it comes to social media, which is what makes the matter of privacy and confidentiality online so confusing for workers and stress-inducing for administrators and employers.
A 2010 study of executive directors at state medical boards found that 69% of online professionalism violations stemmed from inappropriate contacts with patients.


A set of model guidelines for social media use by physicians was developed in 2011 by the Federation of State Medical Boards and is a helpful start for travel nurses who may encounter a variety of social media policies. The National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) has also created guidelines more specific to nurses, and notes that while many hospitals have social media policies that govern what goes on during working hours, few address social media use outside of the workplace—which is where many nurses find trouble. Here are three tips nurses should follow when using social media:


1. Confidentiality and privacy are the biggest concerns. NCSBN cautions against any postings or activity that could reveal any information about a patient. However innocent it may seem, it is very easy to give away information that could indirectly lead to discovery of a patient’s identity and result in a Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) violation. Even posts that you think are private, or are quickly deleted can cause trouble, so exercise caution in your online presence.
2. Another best practice is to avoid posting any images involving patients in any way. Even a favorite patient who asks for a photo together can end in problems. Cautionary tales are endless, and it is best to avoid any such activities on personal devices.
3. Keep your content professional. For travel nurses, social media is a useful took for keeping in touch with family and friends while on the road. Avoid posting photos of what it looks like at your new job, but more importantly, police the state of your online presence during your personal time. Nurses are obligated to maintain professionalism at all times, and photos or narratives of being intoxicated or involvement in compromising activities even in your off-time can still land you in hot water. Just be aware that nothing is completely private online, and caution should be taken as to what is posted at any time.
When in doubt, lean toward being conservative, don’t post anything you’re unsure of, and check with administrators on your assignment for individual hospital guidelines.

How Doctors Can Make Use of Social Media?

How Doctors Can Make Use of Social Media? | Clinical Integration and Physician Alignment | Scoop.it

By using the right strategy doctors can gain a lot by making a proper use of social media to market themselves, share their rich experience and knowledge and carry out discussions with the colleagues in the industry.

Many of the doctors are afraid of the unknown and thus decide to remain silent over the social media due to privacy concerns. It is possible to create a good balance between having a transparent communication and matching to the necessary limitations of the industry.  Around 24% of physicians use social media at least once a day to post, share and seek medical information. The use of social media is still in its early years and it is a great opportunity to take advantage of these digital platforms and build credibility for your career as a doctor or a physician. The medical industry is very less saturated online as compared to other industries mainly due to the fear and apprehensions of health care organizations and professions as they would want to avoid liability issues related to social media related platforms.

As a doctor it is possible to make an effective and profitable social media strategy to market your practice and career. It will require a lot of time and effort but the results can have a far reaching effect for the long term success. If you are a physician or a doctor there are many ways you can make yourself stand out among others and effectively reach the right people in your social media.

Set up personal account in Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn

Having social media accounts is one of the ways to increase your social footprint and expand it. Make a personal profile in all these three networks and optimize them to the fullest.

Make Use of Visuals

Visuals are more effective in engaging people than text therefore include more pictures in your social media profiles on LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter. This is one of the important things to implement on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. When you are sharing content make sure you use original and non copyrighted photography in order to boost your engaging posts. Another way is to make use of photos in the blog posts, videos and articles when you are posting things on these networks.

Share the knowledge

It doesn’t matter that which platform you are sharing your content on but make sure you whatever you are saying is helping you to make connections, followers and friends. Make use of your unique expertise and share the relevant information about what you know best.

Apart from joining the existing twitter chats, LinkedIn groups and relevant online discussion related to your area of expertise and industry, plan and start your own sharing hub on social media in order to bring the depth of knowledge to your professional interests.

Whether your knowledge hub is a LinkedIn Group, Twitter chats, Google plus profile or other relevant discussions online related to your industry, it is an important way of sharing what you know and build your credibility as you educate others.

As doctors it is important that you follow the rule of thumb to make sure you are providing the value to others and making use of your time spent on the social media networks. Doctor’s job is to make sure they share their expertise and execute their advice.

Frequency of posting on LinkedIn

As one of the largest network of professionals online LinkedIn allow doctors to highlight each aspect of their career path using text and visuals. LinkedIn can offer lots of benefits to doctors because of its professional nature and a large network of likeminded people sharing and connecting with others. Begin by sharing the content from your profile that reflects your expertise and knowledge as a healthcare professional.

On LinkedIn content needs to be of a professional nature and little more reserved than the one shared on Facebook or Twitter. Share the links to those articles and other information that can be of some value to your connections and at the same time adding your own perspectives through commenting on posts.

Follow other Healthcare Professionals on Social Media

Using Facebook and Twitter you can reach out to existing network of your contacts that you already know and you can find them by searching for colleagues, peers and friends working in the healthcare field. Follow and make connection with these individuals. After that you can use each networks search feature for to look for individuals in the similar role or industry. By connecting with a large number of people on these platforms you will have the like- minded people to interact with and share your views and experiences.

Participate in conversations on twitter

Twitter is the best social media platform for having a public one to one conversation at the basic level. Start your conversation with doctors and medical professionals and discuss current trends in healthcare industry or new findings.

You can also find the conversations from other you have followed by searching through hashtags or keywords related to your interests a physician

Join Useful Twitter Chats

In twitter chats, on particular topics and hash tags occurs weekly, monthly or quarterly. Search and discover what chats Twitter chats are available for medical professionals and join these conversations with other participants and learn new things. When participating in the twitter chat answer some of the questions asked by participants or posted by moderators by adding your views and opinions. Follow other participants and moderators in the chat and include proper hash tags in all of your tweets.

Go For Accuracy

There is a large amount of misinformation online when it comes to medical field that confuses consumers and dilutes the effectiveness of accurate medial insights. As a doctor it is important that you act as the voice of reason when sharing important information about healthcare online. Go for accurate coverage of information on social media that could affect your credibility for the long term.

Spend a limited time on social media at a certain part of the day or few times a week to help you make your efforts to be more accurate. Again it needs to be quality over quantity when it comes to content sharing and the discussions that you are having online.

Ask Questions

One of the benefits of having social media is the ability to have actual conversations online with your friends, family, peers and other connections in your network. As a doctor you should ask questions from your audience in order to get their feedback on some decision or a perspective on industry news.

As you will ask questions you will be able to learn the insights of your network. No one knows everything but still someone has something to share with others. Make use of your network on social media to get more insights and establish your credibility as respected and reputed doctor.

5 ways to Reach New Patients through Social Media

5 ways to Reach New Patients through Social Media | Clinical Integration and Physician Alignment | Scoop.it

Yes even Doctors need to have regular new clients to maintain a healthy practice. However, the days of marketing primarily through phone directory listings or referrals from other doctors is over. Social Media Marketing is a valuable tool for many patients who have recently “fired” a doctor.

1. Using different websites are helpful, but there are limits – There are many useful social media sites, and it's tempting to use as many as possible. However, keeping all of them updated can turn into a chore that makes it harder to see to patient needs in a timely manner. Twitter and Facebook are essential, along with possibly one other site like LinkedIn.

2. Responsiveness makes a difference – Sometimes, a prospective patient or family member of a patient needs further information before deciding on going to a doctor. An example might be a patient who needs cataract surgery, but requires further information on what types of anesthesia the doctor uses because of a cardiac risk. It's important for staff to be able to quickly answer such questions, while respecting the fact that a doctor/patient relationship is not established.

3. Comments can make up someone's mind - Many prospective patients will scan a practice's profile comments or updates as part of their research. Seeing how the staff responds to inquiries or what other followers say about the doctor is a major part of what helps patients decide. Making sure you're proactive about removing spam comments or comments that turn into major dramas also helps.

4. Jumping in isn't rude – You might have some hesitation about jumping onto a discussion on another social media profile you follow. However, this can make a major difference, especially if the discussion contains inaccurate information or was started by a layperson with no medical knowledge. Prospective patients often choose a doctor based on how they address questions from the public.

5. Professional opinions matter – Traditionally taboo subjects that are unrelated to medicine, such as religion and general politics, are still best left alone. However, insights on new laws that affect patients are valuable. Most patients appreciate a helping hand when new laws affect them
