Stanford Medicine X and Symplur announce an Everyone Included™ social media research challenge

Stanford Medicine X and Symplur announce an Everyone Included™ social media research challenge


Why ask questions about health care social media?

Social media use in health care and medicine has transformed how stakeholders discuss problems and innovate solutions. Who benefits from social media engagement in medicine? To what extent does it help form communities of practice, help patients feel less isolated, and unite caregivers and researchers in the common goal to improve health and cure disease? How might social media be used for medical education? What risks to patient privacy and health care might social media use impose? Who, if any, are being left out of these conversations? These are just a few important questions social media analytics might help elucidate.

Stanford Medicine X and Symplur are pleased to announce a joint initiative designed to spark scholarly research activity on health care social media. The Stanford Medicine X | Symplur Everyone Included™ Research Challenge asks all health care stakeholders to form partnerships and address one of the questions below:
      • How is social media transforming health care in 2016?
      • How is social media being used to innovate medical education
      • How can social media be used to create greater understanding between online health care communities? What can be learnt if they held joint TweetChats?
