HealthXPh and PCHRD-DOST, together with partner organisations successfully hosted the first ever Philippine HealthCare Social Media Summit (#hcsmPH ) in Cebu City last Feb 21, 2015. The summit gathered healthcare professionals, healthcare students, and health advocates to crowdsource concepts on healthcare social media and launched a healthcare social media manifesto.
The summit’s plenary session speakers and four program tracks panelist tackled the various healthcare social media issues in the Philippines. Track 1 covered protecting patient privacy and confidentiality on Social Media, track 2 on social media and health promotions, track 3 Social media and health educations professions and track 4 patient stories on social media.
Not only was the summit a resounding success in engaging participants about healthcare social media, it also brought forward some very interesting questions the organizers felt a tweetchat session is needed to crowdsource answers.
So for this saturday’s tweetchat (Feb 28, 2015 9:00PM Manila time) we’re asking #healthXPh tweeps these questions:
- T1: Is it ethical to share patient stories on social media to enhance learning?
T2: How would social media “virality” relate to health outcomes?
T3: How can social media make healthcare research enjoyable?
