On September 27, 2012, social media marketing firm, fishbat, Inc. discusses the advancements of social media, and its recent use in the medical field.
Social Media Today writer Daulton West, Jr. brought attention to the recent use of social media by doctors which, he feels, creates better awareness and engagement among patients. According to West, “The healthcare industry is using social media to get the word out, ‘engage and educate’ followers, and start a digital dialogue to connect and collaborate more effectively with their communities.” The article states that there is a new breed of physicians who are texting patients, following disease trends on twitter and communicating with patients via email.
Sida Li, VP of Operations at fishbat, Inc. feels the increasing use of social media by physicians is positive news. “Social media is growing rapidly, especially in its uses,” says Li. “It only makes sense that doctors are climbing on board. You are able to reach so many people through social media, and keep up with what is going on.
“It seems doctors will be able to stay in touch with their patients easier through social media,” says Li. “Being a social media marketing firm, fishbat, Inc. knows how effective and efficient the use of social media for businesses can be. Social media is such an important tool for us and other business, there is no reason it can’t be an effective tool for physicians as well.”
