What is it?
Social media is also becomming a hype in health care. More and more patients and doctors have an account on Twitter, Hyves, Facebook and other social media.
Social media can help the health care with a better communication between patients and doctors. Because patients in this time have a lot more to say then a few years ago, it is important that docter and patient understand each other well.
The ‘’TwitterKliniek’’ helps the patient and doctor with a better communication. The ‘’Twitterkliniek’’ is a profil on Twitter where you can send messages to, so other people who also follow the ‘’Twitterkliniek’’ can see your problems, quistions, ideas etc. In this way people can help each other.
Why is it cool?
I think it is cool, because patients meet other patients on the web. In this way they can help each other and give support. Also doctors can help the patients on Twitter. At the ‘’Twitterkliniek’’ patients and doctors can learn from each other.
The ‘’Twitterkliniek’’ also give hospitals and doctors the oppertunity to learn the world of social media. When they know how to work with twitter, facebook, hyves and other social media, they can help a lot of people.
