Patients are tweeting, posting and blogging about their doctors, hospitals and even insurance companies. It’s estimated that 30% of adults share information about their health experiences on social media sites with other patients, doctors and insurance companies.
For patients, it’s a way to take control of their health, access relevant healthcare information and education resources. Social media platforms also offer them a place to discuss their healthcare experiences and learn from others.
Having social media can help healthcare organizations engage with patients. But without a business strategy, you may never move beyond the immediate community into the larger realm.

A social strategy is a strategic plan used to better relate and communicate information between companies and their online audience. This strategy should align with all your channels and follow these basic rules.
- Never post without an image.
- Post on a schedule and stay consistent.
- Incorporate great headlines that incorporates keywords that will lead to more hits.
The top social media channels businesses should be using today:
LinkedIn – A social networking site developed specifically for the business community. Here, industry experts post as a trustworthy source for other business workers. LinkedIn is more professional than other social media sites and MUST relate to the business community of online users to be effective.
Twitter – Write less, but be savvy about it. The traditional 140-character limit has been changed, but short tweets are more likely to catch the attention of your audience. Twitter is a quick-read platform, with strategically placed hashtags. Facebook – This site puts the social in social media! Catchy headlines with accompanying images will resonate stronger with users. Posts aligned with a larger campaign will strengthen the brand experience, but that demands an experienced content designer.
Instagram – It used to be just about the image — but using hashtags is key to getting users to find you & forward you on. Quality photos and clever captions are key for this platform.
YouTube – Anyone can shoot a video and post it to YouTube, after all that’s where stars are discovered. Showcase your brand in ways interactive and entertaining with videos and short clips. A good script writer can ensure the video communicates the brand consistently and accurately and most importantly, professionally.
