The evolution of Health 2.0 in our data-driven world calls for a shift in the way health organizations locate and communicate with their target audiences. While health challenges abound in local communities and on a global scale, so does the potential within the communication tools and technology that we hold. During this first of its kind summit, health communicators within the GLOBALHealthPR network from across the globe converge to present data and reveal insight from a global listening program which spanned [15] countries, assessing the impact and conversation around a specific global health pandemic, malaria. The IHSMS team discuss the implications for the data found and offer insight into strategies for using digital tools to benefit national and international healthcare organizations today.

  • Web 1 – slow internet, low mobility, expensive software, lack of development community, organisational “push” marketingWeb 2 – faster, mobile, free software, extensive development, social, user generated, fragmentedWeb 3 – cloud computing, semantic web – information and opinions will find you
  • High quality communities around specific conditions form fast
  • As a network, we have pulled our insights into social media best practice to determine our working principles for social media campaigns.Be responsive – any social media activities should be based on listening and respond and adapt to the dialogue that is observedBe inclusive – involve active stakeholders in the planning formation from the outset. Listening helps map active and engaged patientsBe useful – your activities need to add value or will be deemed irrelevant by the social media community. Listening and then involving stakeholders in the development of a plan ensures it is one that adds valueBe generous – an effective social media engagement campaign is generous with both its assets and contentBe authoritative – people look to credible institutions to share the insights that only they have. Having a unique perspective allows one to speak with authority. Be motivational – be clear from the outset in the health behaviour that you aim to influence and build strong calls to action into the campaignBe flexible and be willing to embrace new and emerging technologies. Be adaptive to the needs of each market

It’s impact has been transient
  • Lack of comments across markets indicates, again, a lack of engagement with the topicUK spikes indicates X fold increase in comment rate from baseline and can be attributed to....
