    T1 SM somewhat changes the physician-patient relationship. #hcsm

    T1 live at #hcsm – How is SM changing HC for the new providers entering the field? How do new providers stay on top of changes & SM? #hcsm

    T1. Integrating SoMe into “what one does”, as opposed to “add it onto 1,000 other things”. #hcsm
  7. Share
    We communicate in new ways, and new providers are naturally more willing to think outside the traditional “office visit” model. t1 #hcsm
  8. Share
    T1: There’s lots to catch up on, but there are many more free tools available for efficiency (e.g. dashboards) #hcsm

    T1 (cont’d): Fortunately, even some medical journals are now publishing studies on social media’s influence in healthcare. That helps. #hcsm
  11. Share
    @HealthSocMed T1: Wondered with Match day if some might give information re: Placements through Tweets. Saw Video on @einsteinmed #HCSM
  12. Share
    T1 I’m going to go out on a limb: I’m not sure that SocMed is changing HC for new providers…yet. We haven’t figured out best use. #hcsm
  13. Share
    T1: Those entering health care now are expected to understand SM in my opinion. It’s part of their upbringing. #hcsm
  14. Share
    T1: larger % are using the SoMe entering medicine. The envelope will be pushed sooner #hcsm
  15. Share
    T1 i can see sm helping hcp in doctors reaching out to each other and following trends
  16. Share
    T1 I suspect new providers more comfortable with the technology/tools, but no more clear about best/most effective use of SoMe in HC. #hcsm
  17. Share
    T1 big topic among students & residents at recent conference was power of social media to shape public opinion in contrast #hcsm
  18. Share
    “Social Media is bringing us all together” -Peter Griffin from Family Guy, JUST NOW on TV. t1 #hcsm
  19. Share
    T1 – lots more outlets for communication, but with more outlets – comes more responsibility. #hcsm
  20. Share
    T1: Are there med school courses about #hcsm and how it relates to #HIPAA ??
  21. Share
    T1: Counter-intuitively, older docs sometimes quicker adopters of SM than younger ones. #HCSM
  22. Share
    T1 #hcsm if anything, it’s changing relationships between docs and patients on a large scale, but prob not on a 1-1 scale
  23. Share
    T1. Social media is still a one-to-many method of communication for providers in our system #hcsm (and rare) #hcsm
  24. Share
    #hcsm T1 At our hospital, some new doctors are using sharecare to answer patient questions, build their reputation, and practice
  25. Share
    T1 contrasted with Social Media really not affecting most practicing providers that much (2 echo @RichmondDoc) #hcsm
  26. Share
    @RichmondDoc T1. Recent info on change “new providers”:… #hcsm
  27. Share
    And also not “censured” by experience/pressure. Which I kinda find interesting. t1 #hcsm
  28. Share
    T1: If I had it my way, it’d be part of Grand Rounds in residency. #hcsm
  29. Share
    @crgonzalez T1 I just got my iPad Friday. Give me four months to figure it out, and I’ll be crushing rad onc. #hcsm
  30. Share
    T1 #hcsm For many of us SoMe is a tool, a venue, not a strategy. @danamlewis @DrGhaheri
  31. Share
    T1: Patients may lead the way for providers, by adopting SM and expecting their providers to follow. #HCSM
  32. Share
    T1 i have yet to see the widespread crossover for HCP and patient SM interactions yet
  33. Share
    #hcsm T1: With the students/residents I talk with, they naturally including social media platforms as part of pt education
  34. Share
    T1. Those entering LIFE (not just healthcare) now are expected to understand SoMe #hcsm
  35. Share
    @RyanMadanickMD @danamlewis @DrGhaheri Right. Just like email and word processing is not a strategy. t1 #hcsm
  36. Share
    T1 #hcsm you have to remember, most docs didn’t train in communications, business, mktg; so the “strategy” isn’t part of our thinking often
  37. Share
    T1 Agree that Grand Rounds in training programs would be a good idea, as would elective (or required) classes in med schools. #hcsm
  38. Share
    Already speaking with a few med schools on this Susan @WellFedHeart T1: Are there med school courses about #hcsm?
  39. Share
    T1: Are docs introduced during orientation? most hospitals have #sm policies that they share with new employees #hcsm
  40. Share
    T1 A number of us are speaking to med students @ New York Medical College in about one month re: SoMe. Wonder how discussion will go. #hcsm
  41. Share
    T1: For new Physicians wonder how Medical journals will be changing with SoMe. Fewer in Business? Need to change how they obtain info? #HCSM
  42. Share
    T1 #hcsm Actually thru SM I am starting to realize how the study and practice of communications is integral to daily life
  43. Share
    #hcsm T1: I personally believe social media has to be taught before residents graduate – in med school too
  44. Share
    @RyanMadanickMD Yes. “No margin, No mission,” wasn’t part of the training. #hcsm t1
  45. Share
    T1: for some reason, I think that info on dead tree still “feels” more authoritative. SoMe great way to reflect with peers. #hcsm
  46. Share
    #TOTD “@MedPedsDoctor: T1. Integrating SoMe into “what one does”, as opposed to “add it onto 1,000 other things”. #hcsm”
  47. Share
    T1: we all worry about HIPAA when it comes to new users in SoMe, but there’s so much more. It’s really not that restrictive. #hcsm
  48. Share
    @pfanderson @joshdbrett @MarkHarmel I don’t know that most people go to the library for health information anymore. We google it. t1 #hcsm
  49. Share
    #hcsm T1: In med schools it’s about teaching social media to be separated from medical business. In residency – about connecting w/ patients
  50. Share
    MT @DrGhaheri: T1: we all worry about HIPAA when it comes to new users in SoMe, but there’s more. Its really not that restrictive. #hcsm
  51. Share
    T1: Hope New Physicians will use SoMe for prevention. Talked to 2-Patient 2day if she had known info she could have prevented damage. #HCSM
  52. Share
    #hcsm T1: Med schools, physician organizations, and hospitals are asking me to talk more about SoMe topics. The word’s getting out, but slow
  53. Share
    T1: Social media changes the role of the provider: from gatekeeper to coach, mentor and enabler. #HCSM
  54. Share
    T1: unfortunately, most lectures in med school / GME re SoMe center on limiting liability of School and hospital. #hcsm
  55. Share
    T1 #hcsm one of my goals in SoMe is to make sure docs and future docs understand the power/risks of SoMe and don’t get into trouble
  56. Share
    @DrGhaheri @joshdbrett Yes. HIPAA is an excuse for “let’s not innovate, because I’m overwhelmed.” t1 #hcsm
  57. Share
    T1: Folks really want #hcsm taught in med school? When this year’s graduating class started, twitter was barely on the radar.
  58. Share
    #hcsm T1 If not taught to embrace social media, future doctors will miss out on the best way to build their practice cc: @michaelbmoore
  59. Share
    @pfanderson @joshdbrett @MarkHarmel Sorry if I was too picky. 😉 t1 #hcsm
  60. Share
    #hcsm T1 – resident docs should get comfy w/ social media before graduating … at LEAST BLOGGING!
  61. Share
    T1: Social media could provide new ways to enroll and conduct clinical trials #HCSM
  62. Share
    T1: Med school curricula should cover patient communication, sure, but at this point maybe 5% of that should be #hcsm
  63. Share
    T1 There is growing awareness balanced by marked risk adverse fears-although the balance point is shifting #hcsm
  64. Share
    T1 #hcsm even if not on FB most people don’t even realize they’re involved in SoMe (commenting, reading, etc)
  65. Share
    @NurturedChild Big difference between using your mouth, personally, and speaking as an HCP. Diff media. Same basic ideas. t1 #hcsm
  66. Share
    T1-I am meeting with our graduate medical training committee in a few weeks to review-the interest is clearly there #hcsm
  67. Share
    @crgonzalez That is a question I ask myself for the very same reason. We just assume younger will embrace #hcsm. Not the case. T1
  68. Share
    T1: In order to get good results must have good teachers. Many continue to tell me Twitter is not intuitive. Show don’t just tell. #HCSM
  69. Share
    @PracticalWisdom EXACTLY. How we produce information and distribute it is fundamentally changing. t1 #hcsm
  70. Share
    @lewismal @nickgenes Yes. SoMe is a great way to build a network, and to find people to exchange info, consult, innovate with. t1 #hcsm
  71. Share
    T1: SoMe finally makes patient-centricity more than a buzzword. Patients can be empowered, care can be customized. #HCSM
  72. Share
    @danielg280 Yes. When people say “No” to good innovation, I assume they are burned out, overwhelmed, and under-resourced. t1 #hcsm
  73. Share
    T1: Professionalism not as easy as it sounds. Could have different examples of what is professional from even sound leaders. #HCSM
  74. Share
    @harperlevy @bethlgainer It certainly levels power. A pt. with a platform for communicating is a thing of wonder. t1 #hcsm
  75. Share
    T1: Hopefully it would encourage new providers more open to patient engagement. #hcsm
  76. Share
    T1 I don’t see social media become integral to the PRACTICE of primary care… but for the building of trust and understanding? #hcsm
  77. Share
    @NurturedChild Yep. But, having practiced rurally, I’ve learned that everything I say/do is seen/heard by all. Similar to SoMe. t1 #hcsm
  78. Share
    T1 related question: what should the consequences be for trainees that don’t use SoMe in a responsible way while learning to use it? #hcsm
  79. Share
    #hcsm T1: Lots of great vids out there on professionalism, SoMe, and students/residents – like this one from #MCCSM…
  80. Share
    Just now getting to T2 at #hcsm (T1=great) – talking about digital ‘sherpas’ or navigators. Often said needed for docs – how about for pts?
  81. Share
    MT @drmikesevilla: T1: Lots of great vids on professionalism, SoMe, students/residents – this one #MCCSM… #hcsm
  82. Share
    T1. so far I’ve seen those with the title of “dr.” being allowed official social media use but not other, equally important, providers #hcsm
  83. Share
    @RichmondDoc @harperlevy Yes. ANYTHING I put on-line is something my boss/co-worker/pt. could know. Just how it is. t1 #hcsm
  84. Share
    @danielg280 @She_Sugar Yes. Gone are the days when a pamphlet displays counts as “patient education.” t1 #hcsm
  85. Share
    T1: There can be #Meded value in teaching SocMed as component of Professional resources, priorities, responsibilities; expectations #hcsm
  86. Share
    Videos on insulin pumps, how to explain diabetes, change pump sites, technology in general for living with t1 or t2 diabetes #hcsm
  87. Share
    @DrGhaheri YO! I’m a Nurse and blog on T1 diabetes and celiac disease at and a vegetarian… #hcsm
  88. Share
    That’s a wrap on a fantastic #hcsm! Thanks, all! topics/transcript here: We’ll see you next Sun @ 8pm CT!
