Usage of Twitter for Physicians

Pin It Now!
John Sharp highlights a couple of ways that Twitter can be used amongst hospitals and physicians in his latest post at eHealth. One thing for sure is that twitter should not be used in medical practice because of violation of privacy issues and because emergencies should be responded to in different ways. Twitter though does serve as a great communication tool between the hospital office. It can work similar to how pagers have been used up to this point. One way to manage updates is to give only a certain number of people access to the account, this minimizing useless updates. What are some other ways twitter can be used in the hospital setting?
