#hcsm – October 5, 2014

Topics:

  2. Can social media impact pricing of drugs and medical treatments for patients? If so, how?
  3. Can HCSM help build a ‘consumer’ base to make rare diseases more of a focus, or is the online world too fragmented?

#hcsm – September 21, 2014

Topics:

  1. 1 patient does not represent all pts. How can we learn from single patient experience w/out stereotyping others in future?
  2. Do HCPs crowdsource information online to help make a diagnosis? Why/not? Could they?
  3. Is it fair to ask a patient if they are engaged in HCSM or use rating sites? Does this bring bias into the consulting room?

#hcsm – September 14, 2014

Topics:

#hcsm – September 7, 2014

Topics:

  1. Does SM always have an agenda? (Example – person representing a HC org they’re affiliated with.) When is this good & when a problem?
  2. When does social media turn into medical advice? What crosses the line of patient privacy preferences versus actual HIPAA violation?
  3. What are the ethics for researchers who are looking at #hcsm and online patient communities?

#hcsm – August 24, 2014

Topics:

  1. Recent study shows pts care more about personality, relationship than outcomes in assessing HCP. Agree/disagree? Why/not?
  2. In your opinion, what would better improve the quality of care – reporting on outcomes; or reporting on costs? Why?
  3. What happens when a pt is more informed about their condition than their care team? How does that change the relationship?
