Healthcare Communications & Social Media: A Roadmap

Healthcare Communications & Social Media: A Roadmap | The Scoop | Scoop.it

It’s finally happening. After years of speculating about how and when the highly regulated landscape of healthcare communications would be ready to embrace social media, I’m happy to report that day is dawning. It’s been a long time coming, but with FDA guidance around social media beginning to take shape we’re also seeing clients and regulatory teams who are willing to test the waters.

This is an exciting development but it doesn’t mean that every pharmaceutical brand should immediately set up a Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest account. The authenticity that makes social media such a compelling tool for marketers can also be a stumbling block for companies who are less familiar with the space. To ensure success, it’s wise to consider a few key guidelines before implementing any social media tactics:

Identify your Objectives

What are you trying to achieve? Do you want to raise awareness around a particular disease state? Establish a voice for corporate communications? Spread the word about a new product? Educate a specific audience about a health risk? Understand your goals and how a social media tactic will help you achieve them.

Understand your Audience

Social listening tools have made it possible for us to dig deeply into the conversations that HCPs, patients and caretakers are having online. These tools allow us to see where the conversations are happening, what people are saying and identify areas of risk.

Establish Guardrails

Develop a set of guidelines or Standard Operating Procedures that define how social media platforms and communications will be deployed and managed. Some of the scenarios to consider include: crisis response, roles and responsibilities, employee participation, and level of engagement. You’ll also need to consider who will be in charge of overseeing your social media platform(s) and how much time they will need.

Develop an Editorial Plan

Good content is the backbone of any winning social media tactic – with the end goal being to get users to engage by sharing and responding. Make sure you think through what, when and how you will be posting and coordinate with other channels in your social ecosystem to make sure messages are aligned.  The best way to do this is by creating an editorial calendar that can be developed and approved in advance.

Build Relationships

So you’ve got everything ready to go and your social channel goes live – now what? Social media can be a great platform to reach out to influencers and establish relationships with key media contacts. If your organization is ready, start by identifying who is leading the conversation around key topics, and follow and listen to what they have to say in order to identify an opportunity to share or respond to something they have posted.

Social media still isn’t for everyone but if your organization is ready to make the leap, make sure you’re armed with a plan and the tools you need to succeed.

Health researchers see unique opportunity in self-tracker data

Health researchers see unique opportunity in self-tracker data | The Scoop | Scoop.it

As the number of self-tracking health and fitness tools available to consumers continues to climb, a persistent question has been whether the data they collect might be useful to health researchers. Along with that: Are people who self-track comfortable sharing their data with researchers?

 

A new, must-read report from San Diego’s California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2), funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, explores these and other questions.

 

Based on a survey with hundreds of self-trackers, a majority — 57 percent — said one critical assurance they would need before agreeing to make their self-tracked, personal health data available to researchers was that their privacy would be protected. More than 90 percent also said it was important that their data remained anonymous. Respondents said they’d be more comfortable sharing data if they knew it was only going to be used for “public good” research.

 

One open-ended survey that the report’s researchers posed to self-trackers found that 13 percent of respondents specifically mentioned an aversion to commercial or profit-making use of their data, according to the report. One respondent wrote: “It depends who gets it. Research using these data will be instrumental in the future of personal predictive services, but also for that reason are likely to be exploited by marketers and the politically short-sighted. Thus I would like transparency for who has access to my data.”

 

Among the almost 100 health researchers interviewed for the report, 46 percent said that they had already used self-tracking data in their research previously. Some 23 percent reported that they had already worked with digital health companies that offer apps or devices to consumers to track their health.

 

Overall, the researchers interviewed for the report were “generally enthusiastic” about the prospect of using self-tracking data in the future — 89 percent agreed or strongly agreed that such data would prove useful to their research efforts. Almost all of those researchers surveyed said that kind of data could answer questions that other data could not.

Bikes In The Fast Lane | UK: Study Shows Speed Cameras Have No Affect On Safety | The Scoop | Scoop.it
Here's a scientific study that proves what we already knew a long time... speed radars have no affect on road safety, but they do affect our wallets.

David Finney in the UK, an engineer by profession, did an in-depth study of accidents in locations that had speed cameras (the infamous Gatso ), both of the fixed and mobile kind, comparing accidents before and after the speed camera was implemented.

His research was based on data provided by one of the operators of speed cameras, the Thames Valley Safer Roads Partnership. He looked at data 24 months before, and 24 months after the speed camera was implemented....more
