Social Media Networking Implications for Healthcare Recruiting Presented By Steven Jacobs, FASPR Kaweah Delta Medical Center
SOCIAL MEDIA DEFINED The term Social Media refers to the use of web- based and mobile technologies to turn communication into an interactive dialogue. -Wikipedia Social Media refers to forms of electronic communication (as Web sites for social networking and microblogging) through which users create online communities to share information, ideas, personal messages, and other content (as videos) -Merriam-Webster
PHYSICIANS AND SOCIAL MEDIA Nearly 90% of physicians reported that they used at least one social media site personally, according to a survey by the online physician learning collaborative QuantiaMD. By those numbers, physicians are well ahead of the general adult population -- 65% of the general public use social media, according to a study published in August by the Pew Internet & American Life Project. According to QuantiaMD, 87% of physicians make personal use of social media, but a lesser amount, 67%, use it professionally. And one thing that hasn't changed during those 18 months is the lack of patient-physician communication on social media. One-third of the QuantiaMD survey respondents said they had received a friend request from a patient on Facebook. Three-quarters of the physicians declined those invitations.

The Community Sermo is the largest online physician community in the US. It’s where practicing US physicians—spanning 68 specialties and all 50 states— collaborate on difficult cases and exchange observations about drugs, devices and clinical issues. And find potentially life-saving insights that have yet to be announced by conventional media sources. Sermo is a real-time meeting place where physicians get help with everything from patient care to practice management. They’ve described it as “therapeutic,” a “virtual water cooler” and “vital to my everyday practice.”

Manhattan Research, meanwhile, cited that 88% of all doctors use the internet to access medical and device information In a separate survey by Knowledge Networks, 60% of healthcare specialists and about half of all doctors use smartphones, and that 90% of these mobile owners use it to go online, which includes social networking sites. Ed Bennett of University of Maryland Medical Center has listed that 1,229 hospitals are currently using social media technologies as of October 9, This includes Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, and blogging.

Patient Education: Natural extension of efforts to reach & teach. Public Relations: The media is there looking for stories & sources. Crisis Communications: Take control of the message, and keep community updated in real-time.

WHAT’S YOUR PLAN KEY INGREDIENTS TO USING SOCIAL MEDIA/NETWORKING ARE: 1.PLANNING (WHAT DO YOU WANT TO ACCOMPLISH) 2.COMMITMENT (WHO’S GONNA DO ALL THE WORK) 3.MARKETING (HOW DO YOU GET THE WORD OUT) 4.BRAND MNGMNT (WHAT’S A BUSINESS CARD)

WHO IS IN CHARGE OF SOCIAL MEDIA AT YOUR ORG.? WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR CONTENT IN YOUR DEPT.? HOW DOES CONTENT GET PUT UP? HOW OFTEN DO YOU UPDATE? PRIVACY & HIPAA
Talking Points for Stakeholders The 30-second elevator pitch – suitable for anyone: Social Media is a conversation. Millions of people use these sites to connect, create trusted circles and talk to each other. Sometimes they talk about us – our hospital, our staff and their experiences here. We have to be in the room – i.e. the social media site, if we want to be invited into the conversation. To the Marketing folks: You can use Social Media in three ways – 1. It’s another way to promote our services and let interested patients find us. 2. You can also use it to monitor and protect our brand reputation. 3. It’s also a great tool to follow what folks say about our competition. And oh yes, our competition is starting to use it to promote their services. Do you want to be left behind? To the Customer Service team: It’s an easy, asynchronous way to let our customers contact us when they need help. It’s simple, cheap and a way to catch problems quickly – then resolve them before they get out of control. To the Public Relations office: The traditional media (TV, Radio, Print) is monitoring social media looking for breaking stories. They use Twitter, Facebook and other sites – many times connecting directly with our employees, asking questions and bypassing traditional news releases. Participating in social media is one way to monitor this activity, and promote the messages you consider important. To the Community Outreach folks: You invest energy working with the local community around our hospital. Social networks are a extension of our local, physical communities – many of the folks who live near us use these sites. In addition, with these tools, the definition of community extends beyond physical boundaries. To the Patient Education / Support teams: Our patients and many others are on these sites are looking for trusted medical information. We can be that trusted source – and yes, we can do it without violating privacy and HIPAA rules.

STEP 4: BRAND MANAGEMENT Brand management is the application of marketing techniques to a specific product, product line, service line, or brand. It seeks to increase a product's or service’s perceived value to the customer and thereby increase brand franchise and brand equity. Marketers see a brand as an implied promise that the level of quality people have come to expect from a brand will continue with future purchases of the same product or service.
