Yi-Tan Tech Community Call 221 – Social Media in Health Care (Summary Version)

The Net has turbocharged the field of medical informatics. Social media offer some of the most interesting opportunities to make a difference.

  • Does HIPPA hamper?
  • Where are social media having the greatest effect on health issues?
  • What can the health care Establishment learn from grassroots uses?
