Being attached somewhat to the health industry, it is always interesting when my worlds collide.
Take this infographic by The Journal of Medical Internet Research. You might be surprised that such an organization exists. Well it does, and it discovered that Europe’s health care system’s use of social media is growing by leaps and bounds – especially on YouTube.
What I would have liked to see from this research was HOW social media was being used. Is the Facebook diagnosis a reality? Or can you ask your doc about that painful stabbing in your knee over Twitter?
Our world is becoming more transparent by the day, but is our health care following suit?
