140 health care uses for Twitter

It’s slightly ironic that when Twitter’s virtue is its brevity, nurse Phil Baumann comes up with a long list of uses that it could be put to in healthcare. But he makes a case for its use: “Twitter’s simplicity of design, speed of delivery and ability to connect two or more people around the world provides a powerful means of communication, idea-sharing and collaboration.” and I absolutely agree with his tag line ‘health is social’.

Read Phil’s 140 Health Care Uses for Twitter item here and perhaps comment on whether such uses of Twitter have anything to do with ehealth, telehealth or telecare. (If you haven’t a clue what Twitter is, try this Guardian article for an introduction.)
