Visual Content Is Shaping the Future of Social Media [Infographic] | Just Give IT to Me : Social Media and Digital Trends | Scoop.it
Visual content is exploding on social media, with sites like Pinterest and Vine leading the charge.Even Twitter, which started as a place to post short and simple messages, now has images for a more visual experience. Indeed, the future of digital media is upon us — and it’s rich with visual content.According to an infographic from Oracle, there are five tweets per second that include a Vine link. The acquisitions of Tumblr and Vizify point to an increased interest in interactive media and infographics, with Yahoo investing in visual media.

Instagram for Doctors: Dangers of Social Media in Healthcare

Instagram for Doctors: Dangers of Social Media in Healthcare | Just Give IT to Me : Social Media and Digital Trends | Scoop.it


Ever wonder what your doctors and nurses talk about at the water cooler? Well, grab a paper cup and some Emetrol, because a new app is transporting medical chatter from hospital hallways to mobile devices.

Nicknamed Instagram for doctors, Figure 1 is a new social media outlet that allows users to upload photos of patients’ symptoms and maladies in order to ask for diagnoses, glean some advice or simply provide amusement to their peers.

Immediately after logging on – anyone can sign up – I was reviewing the x-ray of a 90-year-old female with a grotesque radial fracture. Scrolling down started a parade of stubbed toes, extracted tumors and rashes galore – enough to make me regret downloading the app over lunch. But as I kept scrolling (and cringing), my communicator instincts started to develop a nervous twitch. The word “HIPAA” began echoing in my head. Were these patients comfortable being photographed and discussed publicly? Did they even know? And what are the implications of a doctor following care recommendations he received from a stranger on a social media site?

The explanation from app creator Josh Landy, as told to Vox.com, is hardly comforting: “These are people who are talking about a lot of the cases because they’re interesting, textbook, classic versions and they can help.”

To be clear, there are doctors using the app for productive reasons. There are also users like the one who posted a photo of a sutured hand with the caption, “Anyone want to guess what happened here?” Others have taken to posting gruesome photos of traumatic amputations and the like.

Regardless of the user’s intent, it’s only a matter of time before a patient’s identity is exposed on Figure 1. For communicators, an ounce of prevention can go a long way in deterring a privacy breach. Start by educating employees on:

  • Your organization’s social media policy. Most pitfalls lie in the gray areas. Be specific.
  • HIPAA laws. Make sure health workers understand the basics of HIPAA and their roles in upholding it. Encourage them to ask questions.
  • The “rules” of posting online. Whether they want to or not, employees represent their employers on social media. Instill the mentality that nothing is private, nothing can be deleted, and everything could end up on the front page of the paper.

Ill-advised social media posts (not to mention covert photography) have wrought the downfall of many. It’s never been more important to stay vigilant of what employees are posting and where. Otherwise, one unwise post could lead to one “interesting, textbook, classic version” of a HIPAA violation for your organization.

Will Social Media Revolutionize Healthcare?

Will Social Media Revolutionize Healthcare? | Just Give IT to Me : Social Media and Digital Trends | Scoop.it


Without a doubt. In fact, several medical providers and IT vendors are plowing ahead already.

"For healthcare, this represents a veritable social revolution."

That bold statement about the value of social networking sites, wikis, blogs, and other online forums in patient care comes from Katherine Chretien, MD, of Washington DC VA Medical Center, and Terry Kind, MD, of The George Washington University School of Medicine.

It's uncommon for reserved academics to speak of revolutions, but their enthusiasm is warranted. The list of potential healthcare applications for social media and collaboration platforms is almost limitless.

As I mentioned in my last column, IT-enhanced care coordination is already having an impact, making care safer and more effective. But the tools used by Dr. Matthew Press that were highlighted in that article -- email, phone calls, and EHRs -- are child's play compared with the sophisticated collaboration platforms coming online now. At least four application types come to mind:

  • Second-generation patient portals and secure messaging systems that engage patients in their own care. Intuit Health and Medseek are prime examples.
  • Applications that track patients' movements as they transition from hospital to home to doctor visit to nursing home, making sure all the right data travels with them and all the right providers follow through on their care. Siemens' CareXcell comes to mind. This software, packed with a variety of collaboration tools, lets clinicians exchange clinical data easily and keep tabs on patients and specific staff responsibilities as patients move from place to place.
  • Social tools that provide doctors with ready online access to specialists to help manage tough cases and make complicated diagnoses. Doximity, Sermo, and QuantiaMD, for example, are basically Facebooks for doctors, letting them share their thoughts along with lab data, images, and other intelligence.
  • Tools that market and polish the reputations of provider organizations. Mayo Clinic, for instance, has drawn attention to itself and created a lot of good will by offering patients a variety of educational resources and a symptom checker to help them determine whether they need medical attention. It also gives patients access to their records and lets them make appointments and refill prescriptions online. Mayo's smartphone app encourages two-way communication with the Clinic.

Granted, most EHR systems have the capacity to do many of the things detailed above, but clinicians complain that they're difficult to use and often don't interoperate across healthcare providers.

In a recent interview with the Huffington Post, David Chou, CIO at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, opined that social media "is rapidly becoming a preferred medium for patient-to-physician, patient-to-patient, and physician-to-physician communication."

For example, some large medical centers now have online support programs that let patients with the same disease share experiences and coping skills with one another. Mayo Clinic, Massachusetts General Hospital, Henry Ford Hospital, and Geisinger Health Systems encourage clinicians to use social media tools to engage patients and build loyalty, says Will Reese, chief innovation officer at Cadient Group, a marketing agency near Philadelphia. They also have dedicated communications teams to send consistent messages to the public, he says.

Of course, there's a downside to using social networking in healthcare. Some patients get carried away once they realize their doctor is available online, pestering the doctor with every minor ache and pain. It's why providers must set clear guidelines on patient-doctor communication. Clinicians also complain that they're not adequately compensated for the time they spend responding to patient messages. And the Chretien/Kind commentary referenced above cautions against establishing new patient-doctor relationships online rather than in person.

Those issues notwithstanding, the industry needs to join this revolution. And to do that will require the powers that be to give up their risk-averse mindset. It needs to be open to new possibilities.
