If you’re interested in mobile health, join iMedicalApps on Twitter for the first #mHealth Tweet Chat!

The chat will be held tonight, Wednesday, May 2 at 9pm EST/8pm CST using the hashtag #mHealth.

We will be discussing mobile health literacy among physicians and the contributions of mobile health in medical practice.

If you have never participated in a Tweet Chat, it is a fun way to have a discussion with people in real time via Twitter.

With this chat–which we hope will be the first of many engaging discussions–iMedicalApps is excited to perpetuate and stimulate the conversation around mobile health and its applications in patient care.

We hope great minds like you will join us! See you 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 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.
