Gems from #hcsmca Meetup with Ed Bennett plus
Last night’s #hcsmca panel Q&A left us with many gems of wisdom from Ed Bennett, University of Maryland Medical Center; Dave Bourne, The Scarborough Hospital; Ann Fuller, Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO); Madonna Gallo, Saint Elizabeth Health Care; and Scott Wolfe, Canadian Alliance of Community Health Centre Associations (CACHCA). (Speakers’ bios)
At the end of the hour panel discussion, Ed wrapped up the evening with this advice:
Enjoy this time right now because we’re all part of something that has just started up and it’s very exciting. In 4 or 5 years from now, the whole idea of having a social media group is going to sound as silly as having a group of people who love fax machines getting together to talk about the great ways you can use fax machines. That change is going to come. [Social media] is simply going to be the normal way [of communicating] — one of all the different options we have to talk to one another and share information. But I think the journey from here to that point is going to be a lot of fun.
Watch the event on Ustream to hear all the gems.
