Everyone has been a patient. Everyone has communicated with some sort of medical professional. Truth is, healthcare impacts all of our lives and as more people turn to the Internet to find answers, physicians and hospitals are using social media to stay connected with their patients.

Why social media?
Social media sites allow hospitals to engage with patients, employees and other facilities by sharing relevant information, answering questions and prompting conversation. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Pinterest are on the rise, and we can expect significant growth in healthcare communication in the coming years on these platforms.
