Med-e-Tel 2015 Conference Program

Below is the preliminary Med-e-Tel 2015 conference program, listed per day and per conference room. Use it as a "menu" from which you can select those sessions and presentations that are of interest and relevance to you, or that you want to hear more about. Med-e-Tel is much more than just the conference program alone: it is the opportunity to meet and network with telemedicine and eHealth stakeholders from around the world, to see technologies and solutions in the expo area, and to forge new collaborations and partnerships with other participants.

This is a preliminary program. Changes are possible and more sessions and presentations will also still be added, pending final confirmation with some of the Med-e-Tel partner organizations.

Social Media 101: Getting Ready to Redefine Healthcare Communication and Interaction

Chair: Harris Lygidakis, VDGM, Italy

    After a long period of reluctance, the employment of social media in healthcare has been growing rapidly driven by the necessity to stay update, communicate and engage with all the stakeholders, including patients, decision-makers and healthcare personnel, in a more efficient way. However, there are still challenges that need to be overcome in order to achieve a wider acceptance; the relatively steep learning curve and the lack of an instant return of investment, the limited awareness of guidelines and policies, and the arguably demanding integration in the everyday practice, are some of the challenges that hinder many healthcare professionals from embracing this new way of communication.

    The aim of this workshop is to offer a panorama of the uses of social media in healthcare and provide a practical guide of how to start using some of the networks and tools for professional purposes.

    Practical examples of how to employ social media in everyday practice will be presented and short demonstrations of popular platforms, such as Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn, will be carried out. Moreover, the workshop will provide applied strategies that enable healthcare professionals to use them appropriately and facilitate the analysis and reporting of the outcomes that stem from their implementation. Successful showcases on Medical Education, Public Health and Patient Engagement, will also be presented. Finally, small group discussions will take place on the challenges that hinder their employment and the arguments and possible solutions will be examined in plenary.
