Curating Content via Social Media: A New Role for Physicians

Curating Content via Social Media: A New Role for Physicians | Social Media and Technology in Healthcare | Scoop.it

Social media in health care is all the rage. Set up a Twitter account, get a Facebook page—heck, even start a Pinterest account for your office or group. Mix it together with a little video content, SEO, and a flashy URL, and you may be able to find some ROI from your social media efforts. It’s modern. It sounds complicated and advanced. And many social media experts who are dabbling in health care are pushing the merit and success of this marketing strategy.

 

But should this be the role social media plays in a physician practice? Should hospitals use Twitter as a digital billboard with viral potential? Marketing is important, but is it appropriate for physicians who are entering the social media space?

 

I believe that serving as content curators is more aligned with the oath we took. Social media provides a contemporary platform for physicians to acquire, screen, compile, and manage information we want our patients to have.

Value of social media in healthcare is already outlined – just not realized

Value of social media in healthcare is already outlined – just not realized | Social Media and Technology in Healthcare | Scoop.it

For whatever reason – whether it’s budget, time, buy-in or understanding – healthcare hasn’t fully embraced social media. But luckily the ePatient movement has already—perhaps unknowingly—done the grunt work and outlined the tenets of realizing social media’s value in healthcare. Patient engagement thought leaders, such as Dave deBronkart (@ePatientDave), have been indirectly driving home the values of optimal social media use for quite some time.

In the following Perspectives by Fenton + TEDMED video, ePatientDave with commentary from James Merlino, Chief Experience Officer at the Cleveland Clinic, outline the “5 Es of the ePatient,” which parallel the values health organizations should keep in mind when engaging their audiences using social media.

5 Es of the ePatient and social media
Let’s take a look at the “5 Es of the ePatient” Dave mentioned in the video, and connect them with social media:

Engaged – Like patients, consumers like to be offered opportunities to build relationships with the people behind the organizations that are getting their hard-earned money. Wouldn't you want to have a good relationship with the doctor who has more intimate knowledge about you than most family? I would like to know care is more than a transaction. When it comes to social media, that means sharing content that serves the need of your audience first, sparks conversation and ultimately catalyzes a discussion – first steps in any meaningful relationship. Infographics, photos, videos, Google + hangouts not only share their appeal to the digital eye, but also gives consumers that oft-absent feeling of humanity in the digital interaction.

Educated – While there is a push to educate patients on their care options and health management, there is a parallel need for consumers to know why a product or service is a solution to a REAL problem. While engagement will bring audiences to your door, educating them on the value proposition of actively participating - both on and off the web - ensures they have the tools necessary to know if they want to start a long-lasting relationship. It’s a courting process. 

Empowered – An empowered patient is one that can claim self-reliance, just as an empowered consumer doesn’t need an organization to tell them what decisions to make. Empowered consumers are essential to an organization’s growth as they are the marketplace compass - guiding those who listen toward finding answers that matter. When the time comes, use social to welcome feedback. While it’s scary to arm consumers with a public voice, listening to them – the ultimate stakeholder – allows organizations to stay relevant with some of the best and uninhibited market intelligence out there. The transparency of your efforts will not go unnoticed by other consumers in the social space - in fact, it's the new normal. 

Equipped – Armed to the teeth with empowerment and valuable information, an equipped patient then has the tools to manage his or her own care. Like patients, consumers want to be autonomous. Equipping consumers with resources and information solidifies organizations and companies as a staple in the consumer growth process. Look for your equipped consumers as they are gold mines for testimonials and social proof to get their friends in line to see what the “fuss” is all about. Give them your attention and a stage to share their stories, they'll give you pure gold in return. 

Expert – Rinse and repeat. Over time, as patients are more included in their care, they become experts in it. Fostering this relationship over the course of a lifetime not only makes stakeholders an expert on an organization’s value, but positions that organization as the expert and thought leader in its respective industry – whether it’s healthcare, health IT or any other for that matter. When you go to the local coffeehouse every morning for that quintessential cup of joe, don’t you know EXACTLY how it tastes, how it’s made and the friendly barista that makes it? You're an expert.

Patients can always find a new doctor, hospitals a new technology, companies a new consultant. The name of the game in social media is value – and when done with the consumer at heart, we are only looking at a brighter and healthier healthcare ecosystem.

The Next Big Health App Needs to Do More Than Just Track Our Numbers

The Next Big Health App Needs to Do More Than Just Track Our Numbers | Social Media and Technology in Healthcare | Scoop.it
This week we got a deep look at the rumored new health and fitness tracking application for Apple’s next iPhone, called Healthbook. Supposedly, Healthbook will not only track things like how much exercise and sleep you’re getting, but also your blood pressure, your blood sugar levels, and much more. All that collection will be great, but without a way to not just collate them, but make them meaningful, it runs the risk of becoming data clutter.

Vigisys's curator insight, March 23, 2014 4:15 AM

Toute la problématique actuelle résumée dans ce post : les datas arrivent, ce n'est pas seulement une nouvelle vague, c'est tsunami ! Mais des données sans usage et sans sens, c'est un cimetière de données. L'infrastructure de mutualisation de ces données est à construire et l'ouverture en open data destiné à la recherche est la clé. Une occasion rêvée de fédérer chercheurs, médecins et patients pour une meilleure santé individuelle et publique à la fois.

Christophe Guyomar's curator insight, April 24, 2014 10:23 AM

Seulement 9% des personnes ayant téléchargé des applications de santé l'utilisent quotidiennement. Nous sommes envahis d'applications qui mesurent toute des données différentes mais rendent peu de service à l'utilisateur. Ces applications ont un plus un intérêt marketing et de Data Cluster qu'une véritable valeur ajoutée pour le patient connecté.

 

La prochaine révolution de M-Santé sera l'application/appareil multitâches qui apportera de la cohérence et des corrélations entre les données. Alors, nous serons peut être tous connectés à cet appareil, de la même façon que vous êtes tous connectés à votre smartphone qui a combiné l'appareil photo/la gameboy/la caméra et le téléphone
