  3. 3. Why do we need it?<br />People are constantly searching the internet for information. <br />Information that is searched may include finding out if certain healthcare providers are available online or obtaining recommendations on which healthcare provider to go to (Stoakes, 2010). <br />Patients are connected to online social communities. They network through mainline and/or disease specific communities <br /> (Shark, 2011).<br />Stoakes, U.

(2011) Retrieved from: http://www.ihealthbeat.org/perspectives/2010/social-media-in-health-care-barriers-and-future-trends.aspx#<br />
  4. 4. Why do we need it?<br />Hospitals and health care centers have more than 300 YouTube channels and more than 500 Twitter accounts. The trend is to monitor and monetize social media in the health care community. <br />Consumers are listening to consumers and getting involved empowers organizations to participate in and manage the conversations.<br />According to Groundswell, “Anybody can put up a site that connects people with people. If it is designed well, people will use it.” (p.13).<br />Li, C., and Bernoff, J. (2008). Groundswell. Harvard Business Review Press.<br />

  6. 6. The plan<br />Social Media is a tool. With the plethora of avenues out there, we are faced with the choice of what avenue we as an organization would want.<br />To do this, we cannot simply jump into the world of social media and expect to be successful. <br />
  7. 7. The plan<br />Groundswell suggests POST (People, Objectives, Strategy, Technology):<br />People refers to asking the question on what are the company’s customers ready to handle. <br />Objectives refer to analyzing what the company’s personal goals are in terms of how to use Groundswell.  <br />Strategy refers to asking how the company wants relationships to change by using Groundswell.<br />Technology refers to which applications a company should use after having completed the aforementioned steps<br />
  8. 8. What do we need to consider?<br />Once we form a strategy for how to implement social media we must consider our audience<br />Creating policies that limit user content<br />Must let employees know what they can and cannot do<br />Make it clear that the organization will monitor posts for content<br />RaganCommunications(2010).
