Networking has become a buzzword among entrepreneurs and business people, and the importance of networking – as cliché as it may sound - is not only applicable for those who belong in the business and entrepreneurship domain. Individuals from other professional backgrounds, including health and medicine, would benefit extensively from networking as well.
Networking provides a platform for like-minded people to share and exchange ideas. In fact, as a healthcare professional, the opportunity to meet the different individuals from networking events that you attend can have a significant impact in your career.  If you are new to this, here are five tips to help you get started at networking:
1. Focus on quality, not quantityThe key in networking does not lie in the number of business cards you accumulate at events and conferences that you attend. What makes your network a successful, effective one is the genuine connections that you make and how you combine your network, resources, ideas and people to achieve something. This is the idea behind the concept which is called “connectional intelligence”, a term proposed by Erica Dhawan, the co-author of Get Big Things Done. 
2. Gain from others, but give back as wellThe advantage of networking does not solely rely on the knowledge and benefit that you gain from others in your network. Networking is also about your contribution to others. Your active involvement and the input that you offer to your connections would not only make you a valuable part of the network, but can also pique the interest of genuine connections to engage in productive exchanges with you in the long run.
3. Take advantage of both face-to-face and online networkOnline networking is a great way to broaden your network globally, but you should not disregard the benefits of networking with healthcare professionals who are based locally. Clearly, face-to-face communication plays an important role in order to build a long-term collaboration. Drawing the line between social and professional networking on the World Wide Web can be tricky, so if you choose to extend your networking by going online, do remember choose the right platform. LinkedIn, for instance, is a good place to start and is currently used by professionals from all backgrounds all over the world.You can also find websites that are specifically targeted for healthcare professionals.
4. Initiate contact and follow-upBeing proactive is part of the reason that makes a network successful and effective. Instead of waiting for others to reach out to you with an invitation, make an attempt to initiate the contact instead. Find opportunities to participate in events and occasions where you can meet with different people. Also, do your best to keep in touch with people that you meet and follow-up with them.
5. Value informal opportunitiesHealthcare conferences, seminars and other formal occasions are not the only means to meet significant people in your field. Informal gatherings (reunions, get-togethers, etc.) can be a great way to get to know people as well. Such events may turn out to be the platform that connects you to other healthcare professionals through the people you know, whether they be family or friends. Therefore, you should not underestimate these events as an opportunity for you to get acquainted with people who can potentially be meaningful connections in the future. MIMS

The opening message of Monday’s RSNA conference was simple, yet clear: Social media isn’t a trend. Patients rely on the platform to gather information and make decisions, so their physicians should be knowledgeable on how to use it.
A session titled, “Tweet This: How to Make Radiology More Patient Centered,” offered participants the opportunity to learn the best ways to engage with patients on the most popular social media platforms. According to presenter Whitney Fishman Zember, managing partner of innovation and consumer technology at the advertising agency MEC, Facebook is a network designed to cement personal ties, while Twitter is a network designed for sharing and receiving information and ideas.
She used a pop culture to make her point.
“How many people here are friends with Kim Kardashian?” Zember asked. “No one? I didn’t think so. You wouldn’t friend her on Facebook because you don’t know her personally. You can follow her on Twitter to receive information on what she’s up to. That’s the difference.”
After making that distinction clear, Zember drove home why social media is so important to the patient population.
“People with chronic illnesses are the most avid users of social media,” Zember said. “They dialogue with others who suffer from the same condition. Social media is also a natural extension of using the internet to look up symptoms.”
Physicians should recognize this usage and work to provide clear and concise explanations and responses to patient who voice questions and concerns over social media, Zember said.
While it’s important for physicians to recognize the patient perspective, it’s equally important for physicians to understand how social media can impact their practice. Elliot K. Fishman, MD, professor of radiology, oncology, surgery and urology at Johns Hopkins Hospital, spoke about the five ways social media determines a physician’s success.
Communication between the radiologist and patient is important, as Zember mentioned, but social media can also help connect radiologist to referring physicians, other radiologists, trainees and potential recruits.
“Social media and the web give radiologists and the radiology profession the chance to rebrand ourselves and our role in the current health care climate,” Fishman said. “We have the opportunity to connect with others and remind the field of our importance.”
In the not-so-distant past, patients had only one source for healthcare expertise — their personal physicians. They relied on doctors to monitor their symptoms, track changes in their health, manage their diseases and personalize their care. But in recent years, mobile technology and the Internet of Things (IoT) has changed all that.
Now, armed with wearables and mobile healthcare apps, individuals can monitor their own health data and get continuous guidance and information from the devices they carry with them every day.
But the availability of digital health tools is a double-edged sword for the medical industry. Patients are becoming more engaged in their own wellness and taking greater responsibility for staying healthy, which leads to better outcomes. On the other hand, as they rely more on these tools, are they relying less on the robust insights and expertise of medical professionals?
Grâce aux solutions numériques, l’Université John Hopkins a développé un concept d’hôpital à domicile aujourd’hui, utilisé par 2000 personnes à travers les États-Unis. Il offre la promesse de fournir des soins de qualité tout en désengorgeant les hôpitaux qui demeurent des lieux hostiles pour les personnes âgées.
