Posted on April 1st, 2011 by Admin

Victor Montori, M.D. (@vmontori), the medical director for the Mayo Clinic Center for Social Media, will be facilitating a Twitter chat next week through the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), as part of its "Chats on Change" series.

The program, Chats on Change: New Ways to Communicate with Patients, will be held on Twitter using the #ahrqixchat hashtag from 2-3 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, April 5. Here is a brief description of the program:

Dr. Victor Montori of the Mayo Clinic will be on hand to welcome audience input on patient-provider communication before, during, and after office visits. The Chat will also provide examples from the Innovations Exchange on enhancing communication with a range of patient populations through means such as phone-based care management, patient navigators, e-mail and texting, and personal health records.

AHRQ is part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and is sponsoring this event through its Innovations Exchange.

If you are unfamiliar with Twitter chats, the AHRQ announcement has orientation instructions.
