We have an important announcement for all our valued friends on Twitter!

The mHealth chats will now take place on the first and third Wednesdays of each month, at 9pm ET (same time as usual).

The next chat is tomorrow, Wednesday, September 19. In the past, we have had lively tweet chats with the Society of Participatory Medicine (S4PM) as well as Dr. Eric Topol which have always led to some fascinating insights and discussions.

Come and check out how the mHealth landscape is impacting healthcare and ultimately affecting patient outcomes. We hope to see you there!

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 “lurk”–though 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.

How can I participate in the Tweet Chat?

  1. If you don’t have a Twitter handle already, sign up here.

  3. Every first and third Wednesday, go to TweetChat.com. Log in with your Twitter handle and enter the hashtag #mHealth in the field marked “Enter hashtag to follow.” The stream of tweets from people talking about #mHealth will appear below.
