The new issue of AJPE has two interesting articles on pharmacy and social media:

"Use of Social Media by Pharmacy Preceptors"


"The Effects of a Social Media Policy on Pharmacy Students’ Facebook Security Settings"

Interesting look at perceptions of preceptors from Purdue and students at the University of Florida regarding social media. If you did not realize it, it was that UF/JGIM Facebook study of medical students and residents that found the PIMP student groups etc that precipitated the establishment of that policy.

So tell me what you want, what you really really want

At HealthAchieve 2010, the Innovation Cell in partnership with the OHA announced a new social media initiative called “My Hospital Idea” to meet the specific needs of Hospitals in Ontario. Since then, we’ve been speaking with key thought leaders, change makers and everyday healthcare workers to better understand “what you really really want.”

We heard that while the use of social media has started to impact healthcare, its impact is still nascent. We heard that security and privacy of information often trump openness. We learned that our system is highly fragmented and siloed, and that we would benefit from sharing information, ideas and solutions more effectively. We heard that healthcare actually extends beyond the walls of a hospital, and there are dozens of stakeholders, including patients, who need to be engaged in the delivery of any effective solution.

Most importantly, we discovered that amazing things are happening to improve our healthcare system across the country every day. But that it was often hard to find these improvements and even harder to learn about how they were implemented and what measurable results they achieved. Finally, we realized that the people making these changes, those that frequently went the extra mile, were often unrecognized.

Fast forward to HealthAchieve 2011. We have built “My Healthcare Innovation,” a private and secure global platform, configured specifically for healthcare workers to more effectively collaborate and share timely, locally-relevant solutions. The platform enables users to leverage the incredible wealth of knowledge existing in our healthcare ecosystem and share our communal know-how, from world leaders to everyday workers. It enables everyone to access information and people within all levels of their specific institution and across the healthcare system.

As we prepare for our broader roll-out, we are listening and learning from you! So, what do you want to be able to do on this shared community platform? Drop by to visit us at HealthAchieve’s Sillicon Alley and let us know which communities of practice, features, content and tools you would like supported.

We hope that you will accept the challenge to help us develop the final design and experience of a service to meet your needs.

There are loads of blogs, content, etc. swirling in the ether. However, if you are interested in the intersection of mHealth, diabetes, and business, I strongly suggest keeping an eye on the new EndoGoddess Musings blog (

Dr. +Jennifer Shine Dyer (@EndoGoddess) is a pediatric endocrinologist-turned-entrepreneur who will be chronicling the release of her new app via that blog. Jen is the kind of physician who does things for the right reasons and truly puts a premium on integrity. However, just because someone is a good person does not mean they will have a compelling blog...but I suspect what we'll see with this one is an honest look at the process that will be full of lessons. I'm looking forward to seeing what develops.
