  3. 3. Social Media Provides Alternative Methods Of Communication & Collaboration In Times Of Crisis <ul><li>CDC had less than 1,000 Twitter followers in March. They now have over 500,000 </li></ul><ul><li>CDC’s H1N1 video has over 1,000,000 views </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;Web-based mapping, search-term surveillance, &quot;microblogging,&quot; and online social networks have emerged as alternative forms of rapid dissemination of information.&quot; </li></ul><ul><li>New England Journal of Medicine on May 7, 2009 </li></ul>
  4. 4. Ozmosis Brings Physicians Together To Learn From Each Other <ul><li>Enables physicians to </li></ul><ul><li>exchange medical knowledge </li></ul><ul><li>Verifies identities, and clearly displays real names and credentials </li></ul>Delivers relevant information to each member based on their specialty, interests, and network
  5. 5. New Solution Provides Real-Time Public Health & Infectious Disease Alerts To U.S. Physicians <ul><li>Unlike an RSS or Twitter feed for Public Health and Pandemic alerts, the joint Ozmosis/Veratect solution allows physicians to: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>- View, search, and filter through public health alerts state by state </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- Discuss management and treatment options, share health department and CDC updates </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>- Submit their own potential cases for review which are then evaluated by Veratect, verified and reported back to Ozmosis, the CDC, the UN, and other health agencies </li></ul></ul>

  10. 10. Learning Lessons From The Use Of Social Media During H1N1 Outbreak Is Critical Alerts need to be filtered at the local level CDC & WHO announcements / policy updates need to be disseminated more effectively and to the appropriate targets Surveillance needs to have verified sources Provider reporting at the local level needs to be more effectively linked to Health Departments
