More and more physicians are exploring the use of social media in their practices, and the Massachusetts Medical Law report ran a piece on Social Networking 101 for Physicians recently, quoting Kevin Pho of KevinMD, Jim Tobin of Ignite Health (regards to Fabio aka @skypen!) and me, among others.  As I posted recently, I will be giving a free webinar on the subject of regulatory issues around social media in health care on November 18, together with Jamie Verkamp of (e)Merge, who will speak to other aspects of planning a social media presence.  In addition to working with Jamie, whose agency focuses on physician practices, I am also working with agencies focused on hospital social media planning.  If this piques your interest, please register for the social media webinar and/or get in touch to discuss strategies for your organization and the regulatory hurdles you need to be aware of in the planning process.  FYI, my slides will be posted after the webinar.
