An Organization to Know: Social Media Health Network

male and female physicians Are you still not convinced that social media should be in the world of medicine? Are you weary of the intersection of health care and Facebook, Twitter, et al? Well, if you don’t want to take it from us that it’s here to stay, would you listen to the Mayo Clinic? They founded the Mayo Clinic Center for Social Media and the Social Media Health Network (SMHN).

An impressive educational organization, the Social Media Health Network is an organization that every health care provider and medical professional should know about and become a member of if they are even thinking about blogging or using social media professionally. At the cornerstone of their offerings is a rigorous Social Media Residency, complete with prerequisites. The “residency” covers professionalism, risk management and compliance as it uniquely relates to health care, best practices and case studies, organizational strategy and measurement. The one-day program is offered at several different locations around the country several times a year.

If that is too much for you, you might want to start with a copy of their book, Bringing the Social Media #Revolution to Health Care or some of their free online courses. See the Social Media Health Network website for additional information and a complete list of their programs and course offerings. #now #betterlatethannever
