Worldwide Hospital Social Media Monitor

with 5 comments

We published our findings on the use of Social Media by European Hospitals in JMIR. In this longitudinal study, we explored the use of social media by hospitals in 12 Western European countries through an Internet search (Click here for INFOGRAPHIC)

The next step was to share social media usage by individual hospitals on a map, combined with the great work that Ed Bennet (@edbennet) did in the United States. Looking for a nice way to present this, Silja (@whydotpharma) showed us her idea to do just that. So here it is : The first worldwide Hospital Social Media Monitor. You can easily embed this map into your own website or blog, and we look forward receiving your feedback (Please use @hospitalseu).

N.B.: The data are not complete. So far, only 14 countries are in the database and some hospitals are missing. Furthermore, hospital information may be inadequate or incomplete. Therefore, your help is needed!

To add a European hospital or to modify your information, please use this online form.

Update (Jan 17th 2014): BatchGEO recently updated its policy. As a result, the number of map points has been reduced and we are unable to visualize all hospitals (n=1885) that are currently in the database. We aim to resolve this issue soon.
Update (Nov ’12): Added/updated/validated 3 hospitals

Update (July 5): Added/updated/validated 9 hospitals
Update (June 15):  Added/updated 49 hospitals
