“It’s important for hospitals to have a strong online presence and be known as a trusted source for health information. And, the best way to reach the largest audience and get the word out is to go where everyone is—social media,” says Mark Shipley, Cofounder of Smith & Jones and author of In Search of Good Medicine.
“Now more than ever, patients are connected and having a strong online presence is a great way to reach them, engage in conversation and position your organization as their go-to source for reliable information,” Shipley concludes.
