Twittering for Public Health

October 19, 2008

Came across this slide show by Patricia Anderson of the University of Michigan, one of the first I’ve seen on the use of Twitter in Health Care. More health care organizations are joining Twitter as a communication tool including MD Anderson Cancer Center and the CDC.  The real effectiveness of microblogging is yet to be demonstrated in any studies but like any tool in can have potential in this business sector. MD Anderson, which is in Houston, also used Twitter after the recent hurricane to notify the public of the status of the hospital.
