  • First, what is social media? Social media is For instance, Mayo Clinic has created Center for Social Media and applied social media tools to improve communication and enhance their productivity (Mayo Clinic, 2011).
  • Currently, there are more than 500 million active users on Facebook (Facebook, 2011). People spend over 700 billion minutes per month on Facebook.More than 30 billion pieces of content (web links, news stories, blog posts, notes, photo albums, etc.) are shared each month. Concerning Twitter, the average tweets per day (TPD) for March 2010 was 50 million while the average TPD for February, 2011 was 140 million (KISSmetric, 2011). 177 million numbers of tweets sent on March 11, 2011.
  • Marketing: People can use social media, such as Facebook and Twitter as a way to market their hospitals and services. Fast dissemination: People can develop content on Facebook and the content can be seen by thousands of visitors quickly.Get feedback directly: People can get the feedback from customers directly through social media networking.Interactive communication: People can communicate with their customers interactively and share the latest information about their hospitals and institutions on social media.There are over 900 million objects that people interact with (pages, groups, events and community pages) Average user is connected to 80 community pages, groups and events Average user creates 90 pieces of content each monthMore than 30 billion pieces of content (web links, news stories, blog posts, notes, photo albums, etc.) shared each month.
  • So, what do we need to consider? First – Resources- Do you have enough staff? How much do they need to be trained? Is there enough money in the budget to pay the employee(s)?Establish guidelines or policies for the use of social media to allow all the employees to follow. Some hospitals, such as Cleveland Clinic and Massachusetts General Hospital have set up the policies ( Cleveland Clinic and Massachusetts General Hospital, 2011)Consider HIPAA and try to protect patients’ privacyProvide workshops on social media which include how to use Facebook and Twitter Protect the hospital’s image and reputation. Be cautious about posting information related to the institutionDo think before share
  • Fast communication can be achieved through social mediaQuick results can be received through social media tools while marketing the hospitalMore patients and customers can be reached through social media.
  • Conduct a survey on the use of social media among the hospital employees, such as physicians, nurses, and other medial staff and customers.Remember start simple and go step by step. We can start small now with facebook and twitter. And add more, for example a blog, if we still think it’d be useful later. It’s easier to add later then overuse our resources now.
  • ***Free to start page- NOT free to staff it…Money can be saved for posting ads for marketing the hospital and services on Facebook and Twitter. It may be time-consuming for updating and maintaining these accounts. However, it is worthwhile establishing social media tools.Social media is the trend for improving communication and marketing health care organizations. Let’s start with social media and embrace this trend to improve our hospital communication with our patients and community and enhance our productivity.
