Hashtags of the Week (HOTW): Listening (Week of October 28, 2013)

The HOTW posts are moving to Monday for now, and thank you for your patience.

Ear, In Situ

This past week I noticed two themes across several different Twitter chats and communities. The first theme was the very timely topic of “Obamacare” and the Affordable Care Act, with the second theme being how patients and healthcare practitioners communicate and issues of ethics and privacy within that context. This second theme sometimes intertwined with the first, and cropped up in the monthly Twitter chat for the Journal of the American College of Radiology (#JACR), the annual meeting for the Mayo Clinic Center for Social Media (#MayoRagan and #MCCSM), the weekly Twitter chats for both Suicide Prevention through Social Media (#SPSM) and Health Care Social Media (#HCSM), as well as others. Here is a selection of tweets on these two important themes, both of which came down to listening.

  1. You find such interesting information. I knew of scraping but taking the whole ‘moods’ board from Patients Like Me is a really blatant example. AC Neilson used to have a good reputation. So disappointed. I imagine they were hired by big pharma which will stop at nothing. I hear only Johnson & Johnson has any respect these days.
