iMedicalApps is pleased to announce our first #mHealth Tweet Chat, in which we will be discussing various issues related to the role of mobile health in patient care.

You will have the chance to make connections, meet new people, and learn more about one of the most exciting topics in modern healthcare.

With this Tweet Chat, the first of its kind around mobile health, we hope to start and continue a conversation around how we can use these new tools to provide better care for all.

The Tweet Chat will take place on Wednesday, May 2, at 9pm eastern time/8pm central time on #mhealth.

What’s a Tweet Chat?

If you haven’t participated in a Tweet Chat before, it is a way to have a discussion with people in real time via Twitter. A moderator, in this case one of the iMedicalApps staff, will lead the chat and pose topics or questions to the participants. Participants will then tweet in response to the topics using a designated hashtag in all their tweets during the chat. We will use the hashtag #mHealth.

The rules of the Tweet Chat are flexible. Though we have a set start time, you may come and go as you please. You may even just “listen” – but we’d love to hear your thoughts!

You can expect the chat to last anywhere from thirty minutes to an hour. Of course, you are encouraged to continue the conversation with others even after the chat is officially over.
