Social media friendly hospitals
November 7, 2014 in Medical Technology
Have you ever wondered which hospitals were the most social media friendly or how your organization compares with others? Or, have you wanted to benchmark your hospital against peers, but didn’t know where to find the data? Well, the list of Top 100 Hospitals for 2014 was recently released and it is a great starting point.
In this listing, only Facebook and Twitter stats were pulled to determine which hospitals are doing the best job of connecting with their patients through social media. Scores for each type of activity, with a total of 100 possible—50 for Facebook and 50 for Twitter were assigned.
While other social media platforms are important to note, their focus was on the two most common and widely used in medical communication. To see who made the list and their rank, click here.
Another good source of data (a bit broader than just social media) is the Patient Engagement Index.
