One of the most progressive thinkers in healthcare social media is Ed Bennett. He’s most famous for the Hospital Social Media list that Ed started back in 2009. That list was an eye opener for many hospitals that were debating how and if they should take part in social media. That list is still alive and is owned and managed by The Mayo Clinic Center for Social Media.

Ed Bennett recently announced a new list that looks at healthcare organizations who are publishing patient comments and ratings for their physicians. He currently has 29 healthcare organizations on the list, but I agree that this will likely grow similar to how his hospital social media list grew from 150 hospitals to 1500. If you’re organization is publishing your physician’s ratings and patients comments on your website, you can reach out to Ed and get your organization on the list as well.

I also find it interesting that Ed is listing the “implementation vendors” that do survey and web integration services. Here’s who he has listed so far:

Nice work Ed, putting this together. It’s always interesting how something like a list can move people to change. I have a feeling we’ll have a move towards more physician transparency happening across the industry thanks to Ed’s latest list. Nice work Ed!
