5 Reasons Healthcare Shouldn't Fear Patient Negativity on Social Media | Healthcare IT News

5 Reasons Healthcare Shouldn't Fear Patient Negativity on Social Media | Healthcare IT News | Health Care Social Media And Digital Health | Scoop.it
Marie Ennis-O'Connor's insight:

Participating in social media is bound to uncover some weaknesses in your organization. Maybe your admitting staff is consistently disrespectful to patients, or perhaps waiting times are abnormally high due to inefficient workflows. Patients seek this type of information so they can manage their expectations while healthcare organizations relish the opportunity to know what areas need improvement. Negativity can be interpreted as an unfiltered look into your facility and help to more effectively identify areas of improvement that need immediate solutions for the good of everyone.

eHealth, Participatory Medicine, and Ethical Care: A Focus Group Study of Patients’ and Health Care Providers’ Use of Health-Related Internet Information | Health Care Social Media And Digital Health | Scoop.it

The rapid explosion in online digital health resources is seen as transformational, accelerating the shift from traditionally passive patients to patients as partners and altering the patient–health care professional (HCP) relationship. Patients with chronic conditions are increasingly engaged, enabled, and empowered to be partners in their care and encouraged to take responsibility for managing their conditions with HCP support.

Gender Differences in Searching for Health Information on the Internet and the Virtual Patient-Physician Relationship in Germany: Exploratory Results on How Men and Women Differ and Why | Health Care Social Media And Digital Health | Scoop.it

Many studies have shown that women use the Internet more often for health-related information searches than men, but we have limited knowledge about the underlying reasons. We also do not know whether and how women and men differ in their current use of the Internet for communicating with their general practitioner (GP) and in their future intention to do so (virtual patient-physician relationship).

Why health apps need a social conscience

Why health apps need a social conscience | Health Care Social Media And Digital Health | Scoop.it

In 2011, CNN aired a widely-debated documentary, Black in America: The New Promised Land – Silicon Valley. During the broadcast, influential blogger Michael Arrington said he didn’t know a single African-American entrepreneur. While Arrington later recanted his statement, this interview and the experiences of people featured in the documentary suggested that Silicon Valley is unfriendly to minorities.To address this issue, Hank Williams, a technology innovator featured in the documentary, launched a nationwide effort called Platform. It’s designed to encourage and support minority and female innovators in their efforts to raise capital and manage their companies.
