Social media works in a medical practice. It is time to move to the Next Generation. Meaningful use Stage 2 brings an increased emphasis on patient engagement. In 2008, our practice started using a Patient Portal with success. Then in June 2012, our practice initiated a Social Media campaign. In this session we will share with you how social media is working for us. It has greatly improved our patient portal utilization, has energized our staff in a fun yet productive way and opened up FUN, FREE marketing for our practice. Come learn ideas for success from bill payment to blogs, pinning to patient history, secure messaging, likes and tweets.

•Learn new ways to get your patients involved and utilizing the patient portal
•Get your staff motivated and excited about the portal
•Utilize social media as a tool to engage with patients and staff
