I love disruptive technology, innovation, and creative thinking. My passion is applying social technologies to Health Care.
I am the founder of Healthcare Talk, Healthcare Glass Explorers, and Tennessee Glass Explorers communities on Google+. I also hold broadcast Health Care Hangouts where I facilitate discussions with healthcare professionals to collect their insights, explore new social approaches, and give the healthcare community a larger social presence. I believe opening channels of communication can lead to better results ... in healthcare, or in anything!I specialize in building communities that serve both patients and healthcare providers. I also introduce a variety of social tools and technology to help healthcare organizations work smarter, improve patient satisfaction, and attract new patients. I am especially knowledgeable in Google+ and make a conscious effort to keep a pulse on where social is headed rather than where it has been.
I am also a published author about Twitter, a curious explorer or Pinterest, a harsh critic of Facebook, a participant on Quora, a leverager of LinkedIn, and a big fan of Google+!
I don't believe anything is boring. In fact, I can have fun doing just about anything!
Oh yeah... I have a degree in creative writing with a minor in art. With one class left to complete a dual major, my professor drew on my picture with a green sketching pencil. I refused to take another class from him, and graduated early instead. That was in 1985 and I haven't forgiven him yet. lol
