Health Care: Impacts of Social Media and the demands of the Industry
The world of healthcare is about to experience an upheaval. Here is what is happening:
an aging population
multiple chronic conditions including hypertension, arthritis, heart disease, cancer, and diabetes
a growing strain on existing healthcare infrastructure
These days the value of information provided by peers and communities supersedes information available by companies and organizations.
In the coming years, the demands on this industry will require its stakeholders to, not only, understand where these resources reside, and what they’re providing, but also how to become part of the community to provide value and solutions. How is this going to affect government programs? How will this impact Health Care brands and pharmaceuticals? Who’s doing it right today? or How are companies like GE Health Care and their Get Fit Program making social media work for them?
This session will provide an overview of online activity and discussion within the Health Care industry, what it means for organizations, services and brands and what they need to do to adapt to the increasing demands if its population. The session will also provide case examples of organizations doing it right and how your organization can take steps to building community and credibility in this new landscape.
You should attend this session if you work in the Health care Sector: Government, NPO, Pharmaceuticals: Sales, Marketing, Operations, and Policy.
