Healthcare & social media. Social media & health. #hcsm. Whatever you call it, it’s a force to be reckoned with. Google says that “94% of prospective patients [say that] reputation of [a] facility is important in hospital selection” and that “YouTube traffic to hospital sites has increased 119% year-over-year”; Geocentric says that 81% of people click on a sponsored link when looking for health information; and the PwC Health Research Institute says, “90% of adults 18-24 years of age said they would trust medical information shared by others in their social media networks.”
And I want to contribute to the growing body of information on this topic!
So I am excited to announce that on Wednesday, May 22nd, I will be hosting the next HealthCare Social Media Review. This Review is the blog carnival for everyone interested in health care social media. It is a peer-reviewed blog carnival, the host of each edition deciding which of the posts submitted for consideration are suitable for inclusion.
