Health 2.0 Doctors Online One of the most interesting developments in the social media arena is social networks for doctors.The theory is that most doctors work in small practices, they are busy and overworked and are geographically separated from their peers and can't enjoy the sort of collaboration, intelligence- sharing and collegiality that can do them (and their patients) a lot of good. Some are finding online communities to meet this need. The idea is that when doctors share ideas with trusted colleagues in real time, knowledge spreads more quickly, resulting in faster adoption of best clinical practices--and, ideally, better patient outcomes. 8. Health 2.0 Doctors Online A service called Sermo is the largest social network for doctors, with a reported 50,000 members and Ozmosis is a similar physician community that allows doctors to share favorite journal articles and research by using social bookmarking functions, vote resources and postings up or down, or, like participants in any public online forum, ask and answer questions or join discussions. In addition to online social networks, doctors are using Facebook, Twitter and YouTube as method of communicating with other doctors, patients and healthcare patrons.Orthodontic Partners Absolute Dental Twitter PageDr. Steven Althoff Absolute Dental YouTube VideoDr. Krista CollettiRevolution Health BlogDr. Katie DolanBlog Talk Pediatric DentistryWinnemucca Dental Care 9.
