Healthcare Social Media: Unpacking the #Hashtag

Healthcare Social Media: Unpacking the #Hashtag | info and interface | Scoop.it

5 of the Best Ways to Use Hashtags

 

1. Hold a Live Chat on Twitter:

Perhaps you’ve received feedback from your patients that they wish doctors were more readily available to answer basic health inquiries and curiosities. A hashtag delegated live chat is the perfect forum for taking that feedback to heart. Announce that patients will be able to tweet questions with the hashtag #AskDrSmith between a certain time period. Doctors will be able to follow the tweets and answer the questions as they come in by searching for all tweets containing the hashtag.

 

2. Stage a Giveaway:

Offering a contest is a great way to bring in new followers and create traffic to your social media sites. For instance, say “Happy Hospital” has been working on an exercise initiative with the local gym and has a free membership to give away. They might post a blog explaining the contest and encouraging contestants to enter by posting a status, tweet, or photo to Instagram about their favorite way to exercise with the hashtag #HappyHospitalFitnessPlan. Happy Hospital would then randomly select a winner from the posts by searching for the hashtag.

 

3. Take a Poll:

Feedback is a great way to make your patients feel involved in their standard of care. By creating a feedback hashtag, you can invite your patients to be active participants in your practice’s growth and development. Whether it’s a one-time poll (“What are your thoughts on the new healthcare portal? Tweet with the hashtag #portalfeedback to let us know!), or something more long term, seeking out feedback lets your patients know you care. For long term feedback, you could even consider posting a sign at your reception desk: “How was your visit? Tell us! #HappyHospitalFeedback.”

 

4. Collect Information:

Since hashtags have the great ability to link posts from extended periods of time into one collection, you can use them to connect posts of similar categories and provide easy reference for yourself and your followers. Maybe you have a regular “Patient Stories” feature on your blog. Well, anytime you promote those posts on your social media platforms, you can tag them with #HappyHospitalPatientStories and have them collected by the hashtag for easy access. You can employ a similar method for categorizing posts that you might use on your blog so users can search your hashtags in the same way they would search your blog archives.

 

5. Join a Broader Conversation:

Perhaps the best quality of hashtags is their ability to connect similar interests across a whole range of users. Using broader categories in your hashtags is a great way to connect with other healthcare practices, medical professionals, or concerned patients for a unique exchange of information. Just as you can tag your posts with hashtags like #hearthealth and #cancerresearch, you can also search to see what the conversation about those categories currently is on any given day. Plus, interacting in the broader conversation is a great way to amass new followers and bring attention to your practice.
