Great post
Very interesting post. I think social media and technology in general can help us improve all kinds of healthcare. My company provides assisted living in Concord NH, and we recently supplied iPads to our caregivers out in the field so that they can take notes and view client healthcare records on-the-go and in the cloud. Small steps, I know, but steps in the right direction none the less. Hopefully more companies can leverage social and tech to improve their processes and improve their ability to provide care.

re: Social Media Improves Chronic Disease Care
I think OHCs are another example of the industry push toward directly engaging and involving patients in their own care, especially as patients become increasingly comfortable with sharing their information, either through consenting to the EHR system, or (now) social media and online communities.

re: Social Media Improves Chronic Disease Care
I like the idea of using the power of social media in order
to create a forum for patients, physicians, and any other person affected by
certain diseases. Having a community to provide support and answers to
questions you may have is always good and the insight provided by the community
can be extremely helpful to patients. With the popularity of social media and
devices such as smartphones and tablets that could run these sites and apps,
this can be used to empower patients and get them more involved in their
healthcare.
