    • Reasons to Care about Social Media: Risks are Unavoidable • Anyone (especially detractors) can − Start a blog − Launch a YouTube channel • A significant portion of your employees are in Facebook now (e.g. >5,000 at Mayo Clinic) • ROI = Risk of Ignoring (Hat tip: USCG)
    • The Most Important Word in Web 2.0
    • Cutting Edge Tool Circa 1989

    • YouTube • World’s second largest search engine • Google bought for $1.65 Billion • “The world has voted, and we want to watch videos on YouTube.” - Andy Sernovitz, SocialMedia.org
    • Other Important Platforms • Slideshare.net: YouTube for PowerPoint and Keynote • uStream.tv: Your own global television channel • Mix and Match
    • A Taste of Tweetcamp • Understanding the Phenomenon • Exploring Applications
    • Twitter vs. Facebook • Facebook is primarily for strengthening existing connections (or re-establishing former ones.) For your friends. • Twitter enables you to connect with people who have common interests. For the friends you don’t know yet.
    • Twitter vs. Blogs • Twitter is a micro-blogging platform • Limited length reduces writer’s block • Blogs provide opportunity for more thoughtful reflection and development − Tweeting = great way to take notes on a live event − Blog = platform for review/synthesis − Twitter = great for spreading word about posts
    • 5 Reasons Twitter Beats Email • Polonius’ proverb pertains • No expectation to read and respond to every message • Conversations open and discoverable • Direct messages can reach recipients with priority • Blocking or unfollowing punishes abuses
    • Twitter Hashtags • Enable easy gathering, especially around an event, such as: − #hcsm − #ISHMPR • Follow in search.twitter.com or log into room on Tweetchat.com • Create a hashtag simply by using it in a tweet
    • Making Twitter More Productive • Desktop Applications − Tweetdeck − Seesmic • Phone Applications − Twittelator − Tweetie − Twitterific • Various Web sites, e.g. HootSuite, CoTweet, Tweetchat
    • Twitter Case Study #1: Listening
    • Ensuing Conversation
    • Twitter Case Study #2: “Tweetup” in Baltimore Me: Are you based in Baltimore? Me: I’m going to be there Tuesday for this conference. (asae.center.or/hcc) on a panel RU available late pm? Me: I’m flying out Tues at 6:45 p.m. Any avail in the later afternoon? I think my panel is done about 2:30

    • Complying with HIPAA • Comments moderated to prevent privacy breaches − Patients can divulge own info in comments − When comments aren’t from patient, de- identify • Get HIPAA releases for special comments or video we shoot and upload
    • Where Sharing Mayo Clinic Fits • News Blog - Breaking research news; “Hard” news - Like U.S News, Time • Podcast Blog - Evergreen “news you can use” - Like Prevention • Sharing Mayo Clinic - Features; behind the scenes at Mayo Clinic, and stories from patients in their own words - Like People

    • Stephen Covey’s “8th Habit” Going beyond effectiveness to greatness “Find your voice and inspire others to find theirs”
    • “8th Habit” Opportunity I can go to any group, and I do it all the time, all over the world, and I ask a simple question: “How many honestly believe that the vast majority of the workforce in your organizations possess more talent, more intelligence, more capability, more creativity, more resourcefulness than their present jobs require or even allow them to use?” Literally, almost everyone raises their hands…. Think of the loss of what we could call “voice,” of people’s intelligence, capability, creativity. And yet I can ask the next question: … “How many feel pressured to produce more for less?” and you know what, the same amount of hands go up. Now just put those two questions together: Here there’s this enormous capability and talent and intelligence, and also this great pressure to produce more for less, and they’re not able to even use it. -- Stephen Covey
    • Giving voice to patients...
    • Inspiring Employees Dear staff, This 4 minute video actually made me tear up…the patients mentioning our Judd Sessions, classes and pamphlets…in relation to their satisfaction with their care. How wonderful to hear. The patient/family testimonials reminded me how we are making a difference through patient education in the lives of our patients/families.
    • Jillayn Hey’s “Remarkable” Story “One statement has stuck out above all of the medical jargon written by the surgeons and various nurses who cared for me, and that is this: ‘patient's stay was unremarkable.’ Well, although things went fairly smoothly after a difficult surgery, I would like to say that there was nothing unremarkable about my experience with Mayo.”
    • Therapeutic Storytelling... “I recently read an (Utne Reader) article ... (which said) that through telling our personal stories of illness and disease, we assist in creating a new story of wellness that facilitates healing and in turn directs a person towards recovery. This is just one aspect that Sharing Mayo Clinic provides. It is not only an opportunity for many patients and perhaps future patients to tell their unique stories to work their way towards health but it also provides a voice for its employees to share parts of their daily work which I know must include joy and sorrow as some of us become well and some of us unfortunately do not. In my opinion, this is just another area that Mayo is ahead of the curve in caring for its patients and obviously their employees as well.”
    • Don’t (just) pitch the media. Be the media.
    • The Next Big Thing: Radio Syndication
    • Healthline becomes Medical Edge Weekend • Host is Mayo Clinic M.D. with 20 years local radio experience • Previous syndication not feasible − 1999: Unlikely profitable − 2008: $20K/month unavailable • Opportunity for creative application of social media tools
    • The MacGyver Syndication Plan • Production continues at KROC-AM • Segments delivered to affiliates as mp3 files for next week’s broadcast • Topic for live production posted to blog, promoted via Twitter • Listen live through audio stream from flagship station • Podcasts posted 9 days later
    • Medical Edge Weekend Results • Already a “win” as formerly local program is now on >10 stations, including international • Gradual growth is practical because costs are nearly $0.00 • Unbridling a physician’s passion • Significant new social media content
    • Follow Medical Edge Weekend Progress • radio.mayoclinic.org • #mayoradio • @mayoclinic
