A. Health Care Providers Benefit from Internet and Social Media Presence.
Electronic medical record software and social media offer wide-ranging ways for health care providers to connect with their patients and the public. Having robust technology offerings support healthcare employers’ efforts to improve clinical integration and value-based care delivery efforts. It also provides greater patient access to healthcare information and engagement with their care team. Internet-based publishing and other social media channels allow healthcare providers opportunities for marketing and for patient education, and may expand access to health information for patients who may not seek regular medical care. There are huge benefits available from these resources for healthcare institutions and providers at every scale and in every specialty, which are likely to continue to expand in the future.
