About Get Social Health 

Get Social Health is a podcast about social media and how it’s being used to help hospitals, medical practices, healthcare practitioners and patients connect and engage via social media. Get Social Health presents conversations with professionals actively working in the field and provides real-life examples of healthcare social media in action.

As a career marketing and business woman, I have a strong appreciation of the power of social media. My goal is for Get Social Health to encourage healthcare systems and physician practices to enter social media and begin engaging with patients, community and practitioners.

During the podcast guests share their backgrounds and business experience along with their social media expertise that will educate and illuminate. We discuss specific case studies, experiences and best practice examples. Topics may include lessons learned and how to address specific social media topics like social media training, HIPAA awareness, negative feedback or emergency communications. Our goal is to present some specific actionable ideas and takeaways about the daily work being done.
