Last week I had a follow up post on iHealthbeat on Social Media in Healthcare to one that I posted two years ago. Some of my predictions were correct but who could predict the explosion of healthcare apps. There were so many other trends I could have cited including the study of healthcare social media in European hospitals.
Coincidentally, I attended the Cleveland Clinic Patient Experience Empathy and Innovation Summit on Sunday. One track in the afternoon was devoted to social media with a good mix of speakers covering the latest trends in healthcare and beyond. Check out the Twitter stream here.Share this:

Having written a chapter on eResearch for a book on Health Informatics, I decided to make a video which will be used by the editor, Bob Hoyt, in an eBook edition to come out soon. Both the video and the chapter emphasize the progress that has been made in informatics tools to support every phase of clinical research.Share this:

UX has always been one of my favorite topics. So often ignored in application development, usability is key to the success of any website or app. Fortunately, there is a Usability Professionals Association dedicated to the concept. A recent presentation at the Northeast Ohio Chapter focused on the evaluation of the usability of the Cleveland Clinic website. This comprehensive review lead to the development of standards for the website based on user input.
