GlaxoSmithKline will end payments to doctors who promote its products in speaking engagements and for attendance at medical conferences and will stop paying its sales force based on sales targets.

Esto viene después de una multa, pero ¿por qué siguen estas prácticas? ¿Falta de creatividad para diseñar un sistema de compensaciones más ético y práctica? ¿Falta de integridad del vendedor, del profesional de la salud o de la compañía? Está para reflexionar para los que estamos en el tema de la administración en la salud.

Definitivamente una de las etapas más revolucionarias en la salud ya esta aquí... queda en nosotros estar sentados o avanzar hacia el desarrollo de las habilidades y conocimientos necesarios para enfrentar esta etapa.
social media plan to get a grip Do you feel as though your social media program has taken on a life of it’s own? Do you feel the chances of you getting a grip on social media in your lifetime are well… slim to none?
A cross-collaborative team of the Australian Self-Medication Industry (ASMI) and the Weber Shandwick Healthcare and Digital practices, has led to the development and launch of the first non-prescription medicines industry guidelines for social media use.
Those of us who work in the healthcare industry will be all too familiar with the challenge that social media presents. There is no doubt that we have well and truly entered the digital era, but while most have embraced it, the healthcare industry has traditionally been quite hesitant.
One of the main concerns with social media integrating into the healthcare industry is the complexity of regulations surrounding health communication. There are codes that determine the way in which therapeutic goods are marketed and promoted, and responsibilities of both healthcare professionals and healthcare companies that need to be considered.
The opportunity and need for healthcare organisations to actively engage in social media has become more apparent. Patients and health professionals are participating in online media at an increasing rate, making the availability of credible content from health organisations more vital than ever.
Social media has changed communications and it is critical that the healthcare sector is responsive to this change. The demand for information is high, with almost 80 per cent of people searching for health information online, and patients sharing experiences and asking questions more than ever before.
The healthcare industry needs to drive comprehensive health education and audience engagement in an online arena. Marketers need to feel confident and secure in providing the right information to audiences.
So how could the healthcare industry enter this digital space and make a meaningful contribution to social media in health?
A solution was recently offered at the annual Australian Self Medication Industry (ASMI) conference held in Sydney in November.
Weber Shandwick, helped ASMI launch a new set of industry guidelines to assist non-prescription healthcare marketers to continue to engage with online audiences in a compliant and responsible manner.
ASMI recognised that with the growing presence of social media in Australia, it was important to prepare healthcare organisations to engage with consumers in this new space. Weber Shandwick provided its expertise in healthcare and digital media to create a set of practical guidelines based on real-world experience of working across both disciplines.
The new guidelines essentially represent the evolution of the Australian consumer healthcare industry, recognising the increasing importance of responsible behaviour and sharing of information in the social media and digital content era.
The industry needs an agreed framework to help build confidence in connecting brands and information with social media audiences. Having these guidelines will hopefully give healthcare organisations, and their agencies, a platform to openly discuss social media and content strategies in the healthcare space.

La Australian Self-Medication Industry (ASMI) y Weber Shandwick Healthcare and Digital practices, han desarrollado esta guía para que las instituciones de salud puedan darse una idea de la necesidad de tener una buena administración de sus redes sociales.
El Cuarto de Hospital del Futuro... muy interesante, solo me preocupan 1) el costo de mantenimiento, 2) si hay un familiar donde puede estar? (algo típico en México) y 3) si el paciente pagaría por todas estas amenidades?, sin embargo es interesante la integración de la visión del paciente, quien al final es quien más tiempo pasará en la habitación.
