Social Media and its Continuing Impact on Healthcare

by Joel • February, 02 2012 Tags: social media, healthcare, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Google+

Join Ozmosis & Ogilvy Public Relations Wednesday, February 15th for a star studded discussion on the continuing role social media plays in healthcare as part of Social Media Week in Washington, DC.  As we look back on the impact social media has had on the healthcare industry over the past year, we see dramatic growth in social media adoption by health care consumers, providers, and all the various organizations engaged in the healthcare ecosystem. While the industry has taken a giant leap forward into the world of social tools and collaborative models, we’ve only scratched the surface of what is yet to come.

So what does the future hold? Join thought leaders from Eli Lilly, Inspire, Ogilvy and Ozmosis as we explore the positive impact social media has made throughout the healthcare system.  Together, we will examine how patients, providers and healthcare organizations have leveraged social tools to enhance communication, promote education, improve the delivery of care, and reduce costs.
