Use of SoMe by Dutch hospitals (Part 3)

with 3 comments

For almost one-and-a-half years we register the use of Social Media (SoMe) by European hospitals (hospital organizations). Now it is time for the third update. The results are very interesting: More than 50% of the Dutch Hospitals can be found on LinkedIn, and the number of Twitter accounts rose from four to 29! The number of Youtube accounts, Hyves accounts and RSS-feeds doubled.

The main question remains: “How are the different types of SoMe used?” For example: Is Twitter used to bring news or is it used to communicate or collaborate with patients?

The rest of Europe will follow soon.
