Augmented Reality Apps: Making the Case for Smart Eyewear

Augmented Reality Apps: Making the Case for Smart Eyewear | Sosyal Medya |

With the AR market expected to reach $659.98 million by 2018, many factors will contribute to its success, including design, performance and features. Ultimately, however, the AR industry vision is to become an invisible utility as the bridge between the digital and physical worlds merges seamlessly — a challenge, perhaps, but one soon to be remedied with revolutionary developments in processor capabilities and vision computing techniques.

6 Ways To Use Social Media in Healthcare

6 Ways To Use Social Media in Healthcare | Sosyal Medya |

Six ways to use social media in healthcare can help get the word out about healthcare professionals and the services they provide.

Social media has taken the world by storm and it’s much more than a way to share painfully adorable pictures of kittens — it’s also a way of finding and sharing valuable information. According to the Pew Internet and American Life Project, 72 percent of Internet users say they looked for health information online in the past year. When a serious health issue arose, patients trusted the doctors most of all, with 70 percent of them going to their doctor or other healthcare professional for answers.


That trust in doctors, hospitals and nurses extends to the virtual world. A 2012 Pricewaterhouse Coopers consumer survey found that 60 percent of respondents in all age demographics would trust information posted online by their physicians, and 55 percent would trust information posted online on behalf of their hospitals. Sharing goes both ways: Almost a quarter of all respondents would be happy to share their own take on health issues, experiences, medications and medical treatment online.


The numbers make the story clear: Hospitals, physicians and other healthcare professionals can reach more patients by becoming engaged in social media.


How to use healthcare social media

How can those new to social media make the various opportunities work for them? These six ways to use social media in healthcare can help get the word out about healthcare professionals and the services they provide.

Tweet it out. In a fast-paced world, messages of 140 characters or less are well-received. Keep your Twitter account active and relevant by passing on links to interesting journal articles, newsworthy tidbits and “did you know” snippets of health trivia. Remember to always respond to tweets and retweet any worthwhile information.Tell it on a blog. Blogs that reach a specific target audience and deliver pertinent information can give your personal and professional brand a big boost. Popular health blogs include those that offer new updates on health issues or common-sense solutions to health problems. Capture readers with a mixture of information and humor, the way many anonymous doctors and nurses do on their blogs, and you might see your readership skyrocket.Show your stuff. The Mayo Clinic currently has the most popular medical provider channel on YouTube, according to SocialMediaToday. How did they do it? By delivering videos on everything from what to expect from medical procedures to how to understand certain medical conditions. New videos are posted almost daily, which means the content is always fresh and new.Make time for Facebook. One of the most popular gathering sites on the Web, a Facebook account is a must for any savvy social media initiative. Facebook can allow you to tap into a ready-made community of individuals who want to learn more about health, medical conditions and new research. Best of all, in-depth conversations can be sparked in the comments section, giving providers and patients a chance to interact in a meaningful way.Talk it out with podcasts. Not everyone has the time to wade through medical journals or scholarly reports. Podcasts allow you to showcase your knowledge, answer general medical questions and focus on concerns that your target audience wants to learn more about. Podcasts are also a great way to break down complicated information so that anyone can understand it, a move that could make tired and worried minds very grateful.Pin it. It’s not just a site dedicated to crafts and cute babies. Pinterest is filled with all sorts of helpful things, and one of those is the health and fitness board, complete with inspirational pictures and links to everything from new exercise routines to healthy diets to serious discourse on other health-related issues. (But be warned, busy healthcare professionals: Pinterest can be a delightful time-sucker like no other.) 

Best of all, these social media outlets can all work with each other to create a cohesive online presence. By making more information about yourself available with only a few clicks, patients can get a very comprehensive picture of who you are, what you do and the kind of assistance they can receive from you.


A few cautions

Chances are you’ve already been using the Internet for networking and researching in your capacity as a healthcare professional and don’t need to be reminded that what happens on the Internet, stays on the Internet — forever. Decide on a few key points before you post, tweet or like. Are you comfortable with posting personal information, such as religious or political beliefs? Are you okay with patients being able to contact you online? If you have any qualms about mixing your personal life with your professional one, create strict rules about maintaining both a personal and professional profile online.


Finally, don’t forget about privacy laws. Discussing any patient online — even a fictional patient whose case is a bit too close to fact — can land you in hot water with employers, patients, regulatory bodies and even the law. When posting online, steer clear of anything that might appear inappropriate or flirt with any professional boundaries. In short, never share something online that you might one day regret.

Social media helps stop a cancer surgery!

Social media helps stop a cancer surgery! | Sosyal Medya |

A social media campaign has helped a Sydney mother of five get a life-saving operation sooner.

Cancer patient Nicole Perko was told she needed complex abdominal surgery called a peritonectomy within a month, but was still waiting three months later. A school student she'd never met started an online petition that gained more than 70,000 supporters. Within days, the state government recruited a hospital to deliver six operations.

Earlier this year, Professor David Morris, a world expert and pioneer of peritonectomy surgery, complained about cuts to his operating days. He said the social media campaign had achieved the right outcome for six of his patients, including Ms Perko. But Professor Morris and others have raised concerns over the precedent the decision might set.

"I don't think it is good thing that we determine health policy in this way. But I have tried very hard to alert people to the waiting times and the effect of those waiting times for quite long time," he said. "Clearly it is only through desperation that one makes public the problems."


Health Minister Jillian Skinner said the decision by Prince of Wales Hospital was not the result of a social media campaign "but rather many months of careful consideration of a complex issue" by health managers and clinicians. "Neither politicians nor the community determine a patient's clinical priority – that is always the role of clinicians,"  she said.

But the high-profile campaign clearly resonated with many people, including politicians. Karen Skinner, the national director of, said people could connect with Ms Perko's story and her need.

Public health professor Simon Chapman, at the University of Sydney, said some caution was needed when making decisions based on social media campaigns. "We've all got to be careful we don't confuse the volume of apparent community concern and passion for informed decision making," he said.


Emeritus Professor of medicine John Dwyer, at the University of NSW, said social media campaigns might distort the delivery of health care. "The decision making shouldn't be in the community's hands through social media pressure, that's not the way to run a health system," he said.

Journalism academic and social media researcher Julie Posetti, at the University of Wollongong, said social media campaigns had been empowering and could achieve health justice. "But there is always risk that social media campaigns, just like traditional media crusades, highlight individual cases at the expense of other cases which haven't benefited from the spotlight," she said. 

Sydney University professor of medicine Stephen Leeder, who is also a health administrator, said the social media campaign was legitimate. But he said the peritonectomy procedure was contentious because of its high cost and uncertainty over its long-term outcome for patients. "I don't think you can argue that health care should be beyond the reach of political influence," he said.

"It's the people's stuff, health, and they should be free to express a view. Ultimately it should be the responsibility of the politician to take all the requests put to them and make sense of that on behalf of the whole population."
