  17. 17. What are some risks for healthcare organizations? - Reputation management - Privacy issues – HIPAA - Copyright issues - Inappropriate use by staff
  18. 18. Don’t Lie, Don’t Pry Don’t Cheat, Can’t Delete Don’t Steal, Don’t Reveal The Mayo Clinic’s 12 word social media policy http://network.socialmedia.mayoclinic.org/2012/04/05/a-twelve-word-social-media-policy/
  19. 19. Don’t endorse as a matter of course. Supervisors: Don’t initiate an employee friend request at your own behest. Separate your circle of friends from patients you mend. Corporate logo in your username is a no go. Adding a disclaimer is probably saner. Don’t practice on the Internet, regardless of your good intent Always surmise that HIPAA applies. Speak on your behalf, not that of staff. Anonymity is really gimmicky. If you chat about your company, identify abundantly.

  21. 21. POLL: - I don’t use social media at all - I use social media personally, but not for work - I use social media for work only - I use social media everywhere, for work and socially
  22. 22. How are YOU using social media?
  23. 23. A lesson from Olivier Blanchard: FREQUENCY REACH YIELD F R Y
  24. 24. HANDOUT:
  25. 25. “I try to post 3-5 times per week and include a mix of professional, personal and community posts. In other words, I post articles or photos related to eyecare; local events; or achievements of our staff or our practice. I have found that the posts with the greatest reach are those that focus on staff members. Often, the staff member will share it on their own Facebook page and their friends will be exposed to our page.”
  26. 26. “On Twitter, I tend to post the same things I post to our Facebook page. I try to take advantage of trending hashtags when they relate to health or our community, etc. I think the importance of being on Twitter is just having that presence, and the content there does not necessarily affect its impact.”
  27. 27. “Since we have begun focusing more on social media marketing, the traffic to our patient portal has increased. In February, we had 43 new registrations. In May, we had 67. Driving patients to our portal is really important to us and it creates traffic on our web site. Regular posting of quality content has also increased our Facebook page likes.”
  28. 28. The key is to make it part of your daily work. So how can you manage this?
  29. 29. You can rock social media in 30 minutes a day Ref: Marketing Tech Blog infographic http://www.marketingtechblog.com/social-media-in-30-min/
  30. 30. See what others are doing!! Social media is PUBLIC and SOCIAL.
  31. 31. • Brand awareness? • Sales? • Advocacy? • Patient loyalty? • Provider relationships? • Recruitment of new staff? • What else? UNDERSTAND YOUR OBJECTIVES
  32. 32. “Healthcare social media is characterized by its immediacy, transparency and reach. This is the future of medicine, and the future is now. We have digitally savvy patients and doctors, hospital videos on YouTube, and surgeons live-tweeting surgery. Social media will continue to disrupt healthcare in ways we are only starting to understand. But in order to realize its full potential, all stakeholders need to contribute and participate.” - Marie Ennis O’Conner (health blogger)
