MultiCare Health System

MultiCare Health System | Hospital & Health System Blogs | Scoop.it
Dartmouth-Hitchcock's insight:

From the Ragan announcement:  "The storytelling on MultiCare Vitals—a blog from MultiCare Health System in Tacoma, Wash.—boosted it into a first-place tie with Seattle Children’s Hospital for top honors in the Best Blog (Health System/Medical Group) category of Ragan’s 2013 Health Care PR and Marketing Awards.

 

MultiCare Vitals shows how organizations benefit by making education and storytelling (rather than marketing) their content priority. MultiCare hired journalists to write, edit, curate, and translate medical jargon for the rest of us. 

It also uses a variety of other staffers as writers, among them doctors, registered nurses, dietitians, and even a groundskeeper who discussed the right time of year to prune your roses, the hospital reports.


MultiCare uses pictures of real staffers and patients, and even posts mini-articles about them. Rather than just selling, it has become a popular resource. In the past year readership has shot up by 300 percent, to more than 100,000, boosting the hospital’s combined Facebook communities to more than 21,000 people."


Sidebars include a blog search bar, links to other social channels, lists of authors & categories, facebook like box.  Small thumbnail images on most posts listed.  Larger image in featured (most recent) post at top of page.

Home - GHS Blog

Home - GHS Blog | Hospital & Health System Blogs | Scoop.it
Welcome to the GHS blog Greenville Health System (GHS) has been advancing health care for generations. The stories below provide an inside look into GHS and how we’re transforming health care for the benefit of the people and communities we serve.
Dartmouth-Hitchcock's insight:

Looks like 3 main blog categories: Survive and Thrive is coordinated with Cancer Center, Transforming Med School is coordinated with (surprise!) their medical school, and Inside GHS is the general health catch all.  I like the clean design and this passage on their "about us" page to give context -

"Communication and the way we get our healthcare information have changed as well, which is why Greenville Health System (GHS)  launched a blog called Inside GHS.

Subtitled “finding and telling stories inside GHS,” the blog gives consumers access to behind-the-scenes information, consumer advice and a local medical perspective on national news."
