Patient Care and Social Media

Last month we touched on the influence of social media on healthcare. With the growing popularity of social media and technology information, an important issue for us to ponder, involves possible issues with patients having online access to healthcare information.

In the “internet age,” patients have easy access to on-line medical information and also receive a barrage of advertising from pharmaceutical and healthcare-related businesses. This can create several challenges that may undermine the patient-physician relationship if the patient becomes the facilitator, promoter, and director of their treatment based on misinformation provided by family, friends, the media and the internet.
