During the webinar, the presenters highlighted some best practices from health care organizations from around the industry, including Mayo Clinic, GSK, Medicis, Roche, and UCB Pharma.

Those of us active in this community know that social media is here to stay – with consumers being active participants and seeking control of their own health. We recommend you familiarize yourself with social media concepts, tools, and vendors; learn from the experience of early adopters in health care and research best practices; and understand which social media channel is most appropriate for your specific goals. Every organization is different, and will need to figure out the best activities for its stakeholders.
