Medicine X – Hashtags of the Week (HOTW): (Week of September 8, 2014)


Stanford Medicine X

Medicine X started late last Thursday, and then ran for the next three days with a SOLIDLY packed program. I tried to follow as much as I could, in between kids, dogs, appliance deliveries, etc. I’m tired. But it was really awesome. There were a bunch of hashtags, but the core one was #MedX. There were, of course, presenters and participants from here, including Joyce Lee and Brian Stork, both of whom gave Grand Rounds on the University of Michigan campus last year. The livestream included what was on the main stage, so I wasn’t able to see their presentations, but there will be video in Youtube eventually. For today, I want to share some highlights from the almost 50,000 tweets over the four days. Among the highlights you’ll see a lot about the future of medical education, patient engagement, and stories in healthcare. To paraphrase the famous Susannah Fox, if these are headlines from the future of healthcare, what are they saying?
