It’s been quite a while since I did a Twitter round up and so I thought it would be fun to take a quick look around the Twittersphere to see what people are sharing. You all probably already know you can follow me anytime on Twitter (@techguy) or the Healthcare Scene Twitter account (@HealthcareScene). We’re always sharing and connecting with others in the healthcare IT community.
Now, without further ado, some tweets I saw that stood out to me and a little bit of short commentary (some might say snark) on each.
Very concerning is the increasing rates of physician, nurse and other healthcare burnout. Further, the moral injury to physicians who have taken an oath to serve patients is unconscionable. Who will heal the healers? #hcldrhttps://t.co/2QxSo04Nyz

The physician burnout problem is a really challenging one with no simple, turn-key solutions. I like what Gabe Charbonneau, MD is doing to try and help #FightBurnout.

We definitely need more data scientists in healthcare. It always brings up the question of whether it’s easier to teach data science to healthcare people or healthcare to data scientists. This graphic from Tamara explains why many aren’t getting into data science (this is complex stuff) and it makes the case for why healthcare should embrace data scientists who know their stuff even if they don’t know healthcare.

I’ve been seeing a series of Tweets like this from people who are leaving Facebook. What do you think? Do you trust Facebook? Do you trust any social media platform? I’d love to get your thoughts.
