Topics:

    1. Many HC apps tend to be physician focused. What about other HCPs – nurses, PAs, etc? Why not apps for all HCPs?
    2. There has been an increase in dialogue lately aboutt cost transparency in HC. But what about transparency w/ payment that leads to conflict of interest? Example – providers w/ side businesses; consulting for pharma, etc. – should they disclose via SM? How? Does it impact pt perception of HCP? Also, many patient advocates are now consulting, working with pharma & device cos – how much disclosure is required, & when?
    3. HC orgs want more pt engagement. Pts want HC orgs involved to  leverage resources. How do pts & HC orgs meet in the middle?

Topics:

    1. Should there be SM elements built into EMRs? Would that help increase adoption, or not? What are the risks? Benefits?

    3. Speaking of search & social media: We know hashtag communities work :), but do keywords in tweets matter? Do patients/ppl use search within social media sites?

Topics:

    1. Today, man jumped from space. What kind of jump/attention will it take for SM use in HC to make it to true masses? Discuss.
    2. For T1, many said “dollar factor” needed – what about the attention factor? There has been an increase in dialogue among pts & providers in HCSM – does this translate to increased changes in HC? Example – does amount of dialogue influence outcomes of HCR’s fate, or impact role of HC in elections?
    3. 2013 planning probably already in progress. What kind of investment & integration do you think we’ll see in HC with SM next year?
