Twitter Impact On Healthcare Conferences

Twitter Impact On Healthcare Conferences | health centric | Scoop.it

Some of the key Findings from the Symplur Healthcare Conference Study.

•    There were more virtual participants (592) than participants that were physically present at the location (400). This illustrates both the power of social media, and the powerful impact the thought-leaders at the Doctors 2.0 & You conference created as their ideas went viral across the globe.
•    The 4,999 total tweets created significant awareness of the ideas shared by the presenters at the conference with a total of 11,969,612 potential impressions in Twitter users’ tweet streams.
•    There was great diversity in languages used by the social participants with English, French and Spanish being the top three, followed by Dutch, Italian, and German.
•    The second day of the conference created the highest volume of social conversations with a total of 2,858 tweets.
•    The social peak of the conference took place at noon the second day when Jen Dyer MD, MPH (@endogoddess) presented on how mobile apps and social media can be a powerful way to improve health literacy. This hour alone generated over 500 tweets.
•    Patients were strongly represented at the conference being one of the main segments or social influencers.
•    Looking at the top 50 influencers, they found that Doctors made up the largest group (12). They were followed by Consultants (8), and Patients (7).
•    From analyzing the hashtags used during the conference, they identified some of the main topics discussed including “Healthcare Social Media”, “Mobile Health”, “Pharma”, “ePatients” and “eHealth”.

Should a doctor check the sobriety claims of liver transplant candidates by looking at their social presences?

Should a doctor check the sobriety claims of liver transplant candidates by looking at their social presences? | health centric | Scoop.it

A friend recently brought to my attention a disturbing question from a psychiatrist working with a transplant team: should she be checking the sobriety claims of liver transplant candidates by looking on their Twitter and other social media sites?

 

That question merits discussion because it’s clear both doctors and patients are entering a new world of uncertain medical privacy due to Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and other outlets

Thi is posted by Arthur Caplan, PhD, Head of the Division of Medical Ethiscs at the NYU Langone Medical Centre. It raises an all important very modern question of whether professionals in liver transplant programmes need to now check via social media on the sobriety of potential liver transplant recipients
