Should the medical community recognize the social media work of healthcare professionals?

Should the medical community recognize the social media work of healthcare professionals? | Health Care Social Media Canada Chats & Shared Resources | Scoop.it

A surgeon blogger  raised an interesting question about social media and academe in his blog Skeptical Scalpel.

Should academia recognize social media achievements?

The author compared his blog post‘s page views to the number of people who read his published scientific articles – peer-reviewed papers, case reports, review articles, book chapters, editorials, and letters to journal editors on a peer reviewed journal.

Shirley A Williams's insight:

I enjoyed this read. It raises the issue of recognition when using social media tools in health care and in the Academics. It also touches on another important item (although very quickly) the sharing of scientific material/papers to a broader audience. I see this also linked to HCPs providing information  using social media  and mobile tools.

 

 I personally think  yes, yes and yes.  As this was a prelude to a chat,  I do not know what the general thinking was related to the questions raised in this post. 

 

A good read to both stimulate thought and continue a very important conversation.

Should the medical community recognize social media works of healthcare professionals?

Shirley A Williams's curator insight, November 13, 2014 5:02 PM

Great questions and good read. As I mentioned in my earlier curated scoop, I would say "Yes!".  

 

This is well overdue for both those in the Academic and Health care sectors. Recognition, reward and compensation would drive the social behvaviours into this century as it relates to the use of social technology in these sectors.

Telehealth used for Remote Patients in Northern Life

Telehealth used for  Remote Patients in Northern Life | Health Care Social Media Canada Chats & Shared Resources | Scoop.it
Bahamas representatives come to Canada to learn #telehealth http://t.co/lESGSo64VT #cdnhealth #hcsmca @ARJalali @ryansdwilson @medeo
Shirley A Williams's insight:

Interesting post where Northern Canada is recognized by our Visitors for best practice in telehealth for remote patients.

 

As I read this, I could not help but think why is it not used in the urban areas as well? Perhaps it is but I venture to say it is neither promoted nor is it visible.

We need more visibility of these best practices that are recognized by Canadians.

Family MDs push Ottawa for home-care strategy, plan to end child poverty

Family MDs push Ottawa for home-care strategy, plan to end child poverty | Health Care Social Media Canada Chats & Shared Resources | Scoop.it
By Sheryl Ubelacker THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO -- Canada's family doctors are calling on the federal government to develop a national home-care strategy for seniors and improved health care for you...
Shirley A Williams's insight:

It is really good to see this push. In this release, it states "health-care system needs to focus more on home- and community-based care under a national home-care strategy, which it wants in place within two years."


While it is encouraging, I cannot help but think there needs to be more urgency around this. Regardless, it is good to see that the physician's voice is out there.

Mining Social Media for Adverse Events - Policy and Medicine

Mining Social Media for Adverse Events - Policy and Medicine | Health Care Social Media Canada Chats & Shared Resources | Scoop.it
In February, the FDA released a Request for Proposal asking firms to help the agency monitor social media activity for adverse event reporting, among other content. Many have been critical about the utility of FDA examining user-generated content for adverse...
Shirley A Williams's insight:

Interesting article on how the FDA is mining Twitter for adverse events reporting. FDA is especially interested in early detection of adverse events as well as food-borne illness.


Apparently, More people report adverse events on Twitter than to FDA


A study entitled Digital Drug Safety Surveillance: Monitoring Pharmaceutical Products in Twitter released earlier this year suggests that patients are more likely to post drug-related adverse events on Twitter than report them to the FDA.


This post enters the world of using social media to reach out to consumers, patients for their information. Some are for it and some against. What is interesting is that it is really intriguing that the government sees potential benefit here.


This is research to keep an eye on.

Twitter and IBM Form Global Partnership

Twitter and IBM Form Global Partnership | Health Care Social Media Canada Chats & Shared Resources | Scoop.it
Twitter & IBM form partnership to transform how businesses and institutions understand their customers, markets & trends – and inform every business decision.
Shirley A Williams's insight:

Twitter partnering with the Tech Giant IBM can mean there are big plans for the future. The collaboration will focus on three areas:  

 

1.Integration of Twitter data with IBM analytics services on the cloud;

2.New data-intensive capabilities for the enterprise; and

3.Specialized enterprise consulting.

 

This seems to be a strategic step in analyzing the data on Twitter that can be used by organizations as key inputs into their strategy and decision making.

 

So definitely a partnership to keep your eye on.
