This post is to share information with the MCCSM Network on two potential health care social media panel (HCSM) projects submitted to SXSW that could provide valuable information to the health community. SXSW provides a high profile platform for health discussions and with 3,600+ total submissions it’s easy for good information to get lost. Voting ended on Friday (9/2).
Social Media Cures Cancer and Speaks for Survivor – a solo panel from the LIVESTRONG organization that will answer:
This panel is a great chance to hear from an organization that was an early adopter of HCSM and continues to fine-tune its use in health. Link: http://bit.ly/o3LYak
Can Social Media Benefit the Health Experience* – a panel of five professionals with different roles in the health setting that will answer:
The goal for this panel submission is to explore the use of social media in the health setting… can it be leveraged to enhance communication, education and inclusion? This panel plans to gain primary data via stakeholder surveys to secure feedback and ideas from people across the health setting. The learnings and data infographic will be openly shared with all interested parties in an effort to spur new HCSM dialogue and opportunities for change. Link: http://bit.ly/rtz9Pe
*To provide full disclosure, I am a panelist involved with the second panel – Can Social Media Benefit the Health Experience.
I encourage you to look through the panel submissions and support the 2012 Interactive Health Track at SXSW; fantastic opportunity to expand the health discussion. Link: http://bit.ly/rfq1Ow.
