While I am not sure what the procedure is called I do know that it is not any fun. On Tuesday of this week my wife had surgery to remove her gallbladder. Why am I telling you this you might ask? Well when we went to meet with the surgeon I noticed something interesting on their wall.
I have not used the service as I am not older nor sick or hurting at the moment but it looks like it would be very helpful to patients and I thought it was a really interesting use of social media by a company. These are not the social media channels we usually think of I guess you could say they are of the intranet variety but they are definitely a new way of connecting to patients, breaking down walls in communication with people that can be very important when something is going wrong with your health.
What interesting or even "homegrown" uses of social media have you all seen lately and what do you think of the hospital's new idea?
Thanks for reading. Share your thoughts and I'll see you in another week!
