Pulse on Health: Time for social media adoption at Mayo Clinic
Researchers at Mayo Clinic are floundering in the Sea of Ignorance. Don't get me wrong. I realize Mayo has long been considered an early adopter, both in medicine and in technology. But I think it's time for the Mayo Board of Trustees to take steps to encourage staff to adopt social media more quickly…I find it unfortunate that so few Mayo Clinic researchers and physicians can be found on social media sites like Twitter and Facebook, where users can quickly scan information.
