Doctors using social media to talk to patients, but where’s the evidence? | KevinMD.com

Spotted the results of a recent cross sectional survey of 728 adult respondents on their preference to receive abnormal/normal test results. The study found that respondents preferred to be notified by snail mail as opposed to being emailed or download from a website and therefore concluded that perhaps people are not yet ready for email based delivery of test results and kevin.md thought insufficient evidence for social media to talk to patients. We may debate about the utility of _this_ evidence to be generalizable enough to argue otherwise. Interesting article for social media and medicine folks.

  1. Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with? I’m looking to start my own blog soon but
    I’m having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely
    unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
