A physician’s approach to the doctor-patient relationship may affect how engaged patients are in their health care, according to a new study.

Marie Ennis-O'Connor's insight:

According to the report: Patients with chronic illnesses whose doctors communicate well, treat them fairly and respectfully, and have more contact with them outside of office visits are more involved in their health care than are patients whose doctors lack these behaviors.

The latest shift in social media - iMediaConnection.com | Health Care Social Media And Digital Health | Scoop.it

Social media for social media's sake is over. 

 


Marie Ennis-O'Connor's insight:

Brands must 1) ask the right questions and set the right objectives, 2) have the appropriate technology to access and use social data, and 3) have people with the intelligence and intuition to apply the data correctly. With this, marketers will be armed to make smart decisions for the company beyond social media.

How twitter is being used to study drug side effects
Marie Ennis-O'Connor's insight:

While these studies are sure to spark great interest in the use of social media as a new method to collect post-market safety data, there may be some shortcomings to consider. Foremost is the establishment of a means that is sustainable and works to a degree acceptable for actual data collection. This will most likely be addressed in the next few years, but while it may take time, researchers will have to adapt to new forms of social media that will arise, as others fall out of popularity.

Beyond the hype, what's the evidence for digital health's benefits? | Health Care Social Media And Digital Health | Scoop.it
The health and technology communities have been buzzing about the possibilities of digital health, but is it possible those boosters have argued beyond the evidence? The clinical proof underpinning the effectiveness of digital health is, so far, somewhat sparse. Between the government's electronic health-record incentive programs pumping billions into healthcare, and private sector interest, investment in the sector is rising. But what if the evidence doesn't support that enthusiasm?

Representation of Health Conditions on Facebook: Content Analysis and Evaluation of User Engagement
Marie Ennis-O'Connor's insight:

This research represents the first attempts to comprehensively describe publicly available health content and user engagement with health conditions on Facebook pages. Public health interventions using Facebook will need to be designed to ensure relevant information is easy to find and with an understanding that stigma associated with some health conditions may limit the users’ engagement with Facebook pages. This line of research merits further investigation as Facebook and other SNS continue to evolve over the coming years.
