Is Healthcare Social Media Dead? – Healthcare IT Today Podcast Episode 42

For the 42nd episode of the Healthcare IT Podcast, we’re asking the question, “Is Healthcare Social Media Dead?”  There’s certainly a lot of things that have been going on with social media and a lot of people complaining about what social media has become.  As Colin and I spend way too much time on social media, we talk about what all these changes mean and if anything good is accomplished on social media.

Plus, we dive into healthcare social media specifically and what we’re seeing and experiencing with social media.  We also make a prediction on where social media is going from here and offer some tips and strategies for those who may need some help making the most of social media.

Here’s a quick preview of the healthcare inequalities we discuss in this episode:

  • Current State of Social Media
  • Current State of Healthcare + Social Media
  • Where Does Healthcare Social Media Go from Here?
  • Healthcare Social Media Tips & Strategies

Now, without further ado, we’re excited to share with you the next episode of the Healthcare IT Today podcast.
