Hospitals can use social media to leverage education and news events to reach current and future patients and provide a valuable service.
ET Russell's insight:

This article may be a little bit old since it was originally published. But the message I believe is still so very relevant.

 

Whether we are in the health arena or other. There are never ending opportunities to promote health messages and develop the health literacy of our communities.

 

It is about leveraging of events, circumstances, people stories (maybe a celebrity being admitted to your hospital), looking beyond the incident and leveraging off it to reach to the community with a health message.

Many healthcare entities are also using social media to build and cultivate a team of patient evangelists who can be subsequently leveraged to spread good will and build brand equity to help maintain trust and confidence in health care services.

 

Is social media finally becoming a valued tool to help improve patient perceptions of an industry traditionally viewed with skepticism and disdain by many because of wasteful spending, widespread inefficiencies, unnecessary care, endless red tape, avoidable harm to patients, and a lack of transparency? How specifically are health care organizations using this new communication tool to proactively engage with patients and identify negativity to help address concerns and complaints in addition to harvesting positive sentiment?

Key point

 

Part of this movement to shift responsibility to the patient means hospitals, which have for years measured financial success based on the number of filled beds, will have to adjust to a new health care system that values empty beds and healthier patients.

There is massive away from the hospital to the home and treatment outside the hospital like retail health clinics
