From Andy Liang’s opinion piece in The Tech. Oh, to have Mayo Clinic resources!
“The use of social media has helped eliminate inefficiencies like wait-time, insufficient doctor-patient interaction, and lack of public health education, all of which are vital to preventive care. The lack of preventive care can lead to expensive urgent care, like surgery and high-risk drugs. These costly procedures burden our health care system financially, and the solution lies in reforming hospitals. Mayo Clinic will shepherd health organizations into the Twitter generation, when care can come to you in a tweet’s time.”
