Need input from hospitals using #hcsm to build practice communities focused on #patientsafety
I am exploring the use of social media as a platform for knowledge exchange and learning following patient safety incidents in UK hospitals - if anyone has some experience of this please get in contact

Hi. I'm looking for feedback on how other large organizations handle individual physician or researcher websites. I work at an academic health sciences center that includes several health science colleges (medicine, nursing, etc.) as well as two hospitals and a group of community-based physicians. In addition to the individual profiles and departmental/service line pages that faculty and clinicians have on our official institutional websites, many create individual sites for their practices or labs. Does anyone have policies (or even unwritten rules of thumb) about such sites. Do you encourage them? Discourage them? Put parameters on them (such as rules about using the institution's logo)? Offer support to develop them? Any input is appreciated, but especially from others in an academic health center context. Thanks!

They, like most health systems I think, want their organization to be more [...]

We have many social media accounts at various levels (college, research center, department, etc.), and we're in the process of rolling out guidelines for those. (We are indeed dealing with all the potential risks [...]
