On February 2015, we will connect healthcare to the rest of the digital world through the 1st Philippine Healthcare Social Media Summit in Cebu City, Philippines. In this event, we will be celebrating “Synergies in Social Media and Healthcare."
Tracks to be covered in this summit:
Track 1. Social Media and Medical Professionalism
Social media is changing the way healthcare professionals are interacting with patients. This presents both opportunities and challenges for medical professionalism.
Track 2. Protecting Patient Privacy & Confidentiality on Social Media
Confidentiality refers to the safeguarding of information disclosed to a healthcare professional during care. Privacy pertains to a patient’s expectation that his health information will be protected. Both privacy and confidentiality must be protected on social networks.
Track 3. Social Media and Health Promotion
Social media provides a unique platform for health promotion with its potential to reach many in a two-way conversation.
Track 4. Social Media and Health Professions Education
It has long been recognized that there is a social aspect to learning. Social media by enabling collaboration and community building can be a valuable tool in education.
Track 5. Patient Stories on Social Media
Patients have been telling stories and sharing their journeys long before social media existed. Social media can amplify these narratives in powerful ways.
On February 2015, we will connect healthcare to the rest of the digital world through the 1st Philippine Healthcare Social Media Summit in Cebu City, Philippines.
With the theme “Synergies in Social Media and Healthcare”, the event aims to bring healthcare professionals, academe, healthcare industry, patients and advocates together to discuss the role of social media in healthcare. At the summit, the Social Media and Medical Professionalism: A Manifesto from #HealthXPH will also be released.
