Number of employees on Linkedin 2010: 32.339 / 192.566 health care workers = 16,7% Possible explanation: • Linkedin is for business (wo)men; • No access to the internet during worktime. * = bron: http://www.dutchcowboys.nl/socialmedia/23075?utm_source=Dutchcowboys&utm_medium=Twitter

Conclusions & recommandations [1 - 2]1. The top-5 hospitals on social media: HAGA, OLVG, Maxima, Tweesteden en het Rijnstate ziekenhuis.2. Twelve hospitals scored zero points.3. The top-5 hospitals scored also very high in the customer friendliness list.4. In general the unfamiliarity with social media in hospitals is great in contrast with the familiarity of the patients.5. Most hospitals lack a clear vision, strategy and interaction tactic with the patiënt.
Conclusions & recommandations [2 - 2]6. Having an account is one thing, maintaining it is something totally different.7. The patients are ready, given the fact that they show their apperances in hospitals everywhere. (Facebook check in’s).8. It is not always clear who manages the accounts, so a lot of changes for actual information exchange are unused.9. Social media are a part of the communication mix. A complementairy interpretation is needed.10. In general there is to much sending and a (pro)active interaction with patiënts is not yet ordinary.
