Barbara Ficarra recently wrote a blog post examining why social media is doing such a great job of connection the patient, the doctor and the informational benefits it can provide to both parties. The face of modern medicine today includes YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and blogs. All parties are on every platform, providing information and building communities around the the globe.

Her three most important reasons social media is valuable to healthcare are:
  1. Offers Valuable and Real-Time Health Information to Help Guide Patients and Consumers
  2. Establishes a relationship with the Community
  3. The use of social networking is the real game-changer. Did Twitter save a life?
