1st Philippine Healthcare Social Media Summit: Synegies in Social Media and Healthcare

Wazzup Pilipinas!

All my flight are packed, I'm ready to go ..... to Cebu for the weekend!

Got an invitation to attend the very first social media summit on healthcare. Quite surprised it will be held in Cebu, so I needed to book a flight a day before since it's a whole day event to be held at the Radisson Blue Hotel located at Serging Osmena Boulevard corner Juan Luna Avenue in Cebu City. This means I should be there by February 20 and return back to Manila either on the night immediately after the event or the next day February 22. I chose the latter so I could roam around Cebu for a few hours. It's not everyday you get the chance to visit Cebu.

On February 21, healthcare will ultimately connect to the rest of the digital world through the 1st Philippine Healthcare Social Media Summit in Cebu City, Philippines. In this event, we will be celebrating “Synergies in Social Media and Healthcare.”

With the theme “Synergies in Social Media and Healthcare” in mind, the aim is to bring healthcare professionals, academe, healthcare industry, patients and advocates together to discuss the role of social media in healthcare. At the summit, the Social Media and Medical Professionalism: A Manifesto from #HealthXPH will also be released.

For more information, visit them here.

Expect that the summit shall cover, but not limited to, the following tracks:
Track 1. Social Media and Medical Professionalism
Social media is changing the way healthcare professionals are interacting with patients. This presents both opportunities and challenges for medical professionalism.
Track 2. Protecting Patient Privacy & Confidentiality on Social Media
Confidentiality refers to the safeguarding of information disclosed to a healthcare professional during care. Privacy pertains to a patient’s expectation that his health information will be protected. Both privacy and confidentiality must be protected on social networks.
Track 3. Social Media and Health Promotion
Social media provides a unique platform for health promotion with its potential to reach many in a two-way conversation.
Track 4. Social Media and Health Professions Education
It has long been recognized that there is a social aspect to learning. Social media by enabling collaboration and community building can be a valuable tool in education.
Track 5. Patient Stories on Social Media
Patients have been telling stories and sharing their journeys long before social media existed. Social media can amplify these narratives in powerful ways.

#HealthXPh is a collaborative effort by healthcare stakeholders (e.g. healthcare professionals, healthcare institutions, academe, patients, policy makers) to discuss and use, emerging technologies and social media to positively impact the Philippine health landscape.
