Health Care Social Media Review
HealthCare SocialMedia 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 decides which of the posts submitted for consideration are suitable for inclusion.
Our mission is to serve as a hub for posts from the best and the brightest health care social media writers, thinkers, users and proponents worldwide, to contribute to better understanding and adoption of social media in health care. This carnival is intended to showcase posts about health care social media use, best practices, guides, resources, case studies, experiences, new techniques and technologies and new social media communities and tools. We seek to spread the word that the use of social media in health care is becoming unavoidable and is of critical importance to both patients and providers worldwide.
HealthCare SocialMedia Review is published every other Wednesday. In order to be considered for inclusion, posts published over the prior two weeks may be submitted by 6 pm ET Monday.
Each edition’s host will publish a “welcome post” the Friday before the Wednesday publication date, announcing the Review and letting readers know what email address to use to submit posts for consideration. Email submissions should include the following information:
Email Subject Line: HealthCare SocialMedia Review
