674 Hospitals Have Twitter Accounts – Are You One of Them?

It appears hospitals have been slow to embrace social media. This has to change, right?Michele Wilson in HealthLeaders Media:

Ed Bennett’s Hospital Social Network List (http://ebennett.org/hsnl/) points out a fact you may be trying to ignore: 719 hospitals have Facebook pages, 674 have Twitter accounts, and 448 have YouTube channels. As of January, more than 900 hospitals were using 3,000-plus social networking sites. Those facilities make up just 15% of U.S. hospitals, but it’s a percentage worth noting, says Bennett, Web strategy director for the 757-licensed-bed University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore.”
