I must admit that I’m pretty much a sucker for an infographic. Add in terms like “social media” and “healthcare” and then I can’t resist even I tried. PowerDMS might have known this when they sent me this Social Media in Healthcare infographic (embedded below). (Yes, I got this in January, but I’m just getting around to posting about it now.)

Some of the numbers that popped out to me were 1,229 hospitals using social media. I know I’ve seen a lot of hospitals doing really interesting things with social media. I also love the list of ways US Healthcare organizations are using social media:
* Marketing
* Workforce Recruitment
* Brand Management
* Reputation Management/Customer Relations
* Consumer, Patient and Professional Education
* Professional Collaboration
* Community Creation
* Wellness
* Population and Patient Monitoring
* Care Management/Care Coordination
* Clinical Trial Recruitment
* Surveillance, Analysis, Product Development

Enjoy the infographic!
