An Introduction to Social Media for Healthcare

In this growing technological age practically dominated by the internet, it’s important for individuals and organizations to make their presence known. Gone are the years of dependence on traditional media outlets and what’s replaced it is something on a higher magnitude: social media. Social media allows entities to expand their reach, immediacy, and frequency. It also comes in many forms: internet forums, web logs (blogs), social blogs, microblogging, wikis, social networks, podcasts, pictures, videos, and it’s continually growing.

So what does this mean for you, a healthcare provider? It means you can reach members in your community who can contribute to the growth of your organization. It means you can engage with your patients on a level that has never been achieved before. And it means that you are given a platform as an authority in which you can voice what you believe your patients should know whenever and wherever you are. An added bonus, it’s practically free!
