Mayo Clinic Center for Social Media (MCCSM)
MCCSM, a first-of-its-kind social media center focused on health care, builds on Mayo Clinic’s leadership as an early adopter of social media tools.
We exist to improve health globally by accelerating the application of social media tools throughout Mayo Clinic; spurring broader and deeper engagement by hospitals, medical professionals and patients.
Social Media Philosophy
We believe individuals have the right and responsibility to advocate for their own health, and it's our responsibility to help them use social media tools to get the best information, and connect with providers as well as one another.
To lead the social media revolution in health care, contributing to health and well being for people everywhere.
To be the authentic voice for patients and health care professionals, building collaborative relationships through the revolutionary power of social media.
