Social Media Philosophy

We believe individuals have the right and responsibility to advocate for their own health, and that it's our responsibility to help them use social media tools to get the best information, connect with providers and one another, plus inspire healthy choices. We intend to lead the health care community in applying these online tools to spread knowledge and encourage collaboration among providers, improving health care quality everywhere.

Mission

Lead the social media revolution in health care, contributing to health and wellbeing for people everywhere.

Vision

Be the authentic voice for patients and health care professionals, building relationships through the revolutionary power of social media.
