How to Use Social Media in Health Care - Interview with Dr. Mark Ryan
While at the Virginia Telehealth Summit Meeting, I had the pleasure of listening to Dr. Mark Ryan speak on Social Media and Health Care. Dr. Ryan works at the Department of Family Medicine, Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center. He is also a member of the Mayo Clinic Center for Social Media Advisory Board. Mark firmly believes in health care professionals using social media to engage and empower patients and he does a good job of explaining how to do this and why it matters. Mark blogs at SocialMediaHealthcare and you can follow him on Twitter at @Richmonddoc. I asked Mark to give me a short video synopsis of his presentation.
