Stories from patients, family, friends and Mayo Clinic staff
Mayo Clinic's use of social media was highlighted this morning in a story on ABC's Good Morning America (see the story). The story's focus was on medical organizations using Twitter, but that's just one of several social media tools Mayo Clinic is using to share in-depth medical information and to gather communities of Mayo Clinic employees, patients and their families. You can review posts in the social media category here on Sharing Mayo Clinic for some more detail on some of the platforms, but here's a quick list of ways you can take advantage of these tools.
Mayo Clinic has been involved in social media for several years (beginning podcasting in 2005) and we've made significant progress, but there's much more opportunity, such as using tools like this for more efficient communication among Mayo employees. Here is information about the #tweetcamp that was mentioned in the Good Morning America piece, including the link to its Twitter feed. As we get more familiarity with these tools and their applications, look for the pace of change to accelerate.
