Let’s talk #mHealth again tonight on Twitter!

Join us for another great discussion! The chat will be held tonight, Wednesday, May 16 at 9pm EST/8pm CST using the hashtag #mHealth.

We will be discussing the impact of mobile technology on physician communication, physicians on social networks, and issues of patient privacy. See you online tonight!

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 TweetChat are flexible. Though we have a set start time, you may come and go as you please. You may even lurk– 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.
