LLP 275: How Social Media has Changed the Practice of Medicine

Let's talk about how social media has changed the practice of medicine…

After discussing how technology has changed the practice of medicine, this week, we’re back with yet another episode focused on the role social media has played in the betterment of healthcare.

As you already know, I always tell people “empower yourself for better health”, and in this age where technology is everywhere, we almost have no excuses left to not learn how to take good care of ourselves.

I am a living by-product of how social media has changed the practice, and today, I’m going to share with you five points on its positive and negative effects. Be with me today as we talk about social media's effect on healthcare.

“Because I have access to them and they have access to me, guess what? We’re able to stay much more up-to-date on the latest health information.”– Dr. Berry Pierre

Notable Quotes:

“Social media now, as physicians, we can use it to help promote healthy lifestyle habits and preventative care. More importantly, now, we have allowed patients to be able to [not only] ask their questions but [also] receive credible answers.” – Dr. Berry Pierre
