Toni Hare shared her experience with the STEMI community awareness video–they posted it on the OSU Medical Center YouTube Channel and are channeling it through bloggers, Facebook and Twitter. The goal is to get 105,000 views and at this point the views are near 2,500.
Wendy Philips presented OSU’s Personalized Health Care blog to the group, emphasizing the simplicity in creating a sharing tool like this. This project begn about the annual personalized health care conference four months out, promoting the event and highlighting principal leaders in the OSU Center for Personalized Health Care. During the conference, Kim Dodson blogged live, linking pictures, video and PowerPoint presentations to the page, hosting all the information in the same place. Conference attendees could follow along and provide feedback directly through the blog and those who weren’t able to attend could still follow a good amount of the content. The conference news release referred media to the blog for more information, increasing the site hits a great deal. Lessons learned: the project should have started more than four months out, a technical writer could have improved the content and more content from the client would have improved the final prouduct. All in all, it was a simple tool that didn’t take much time to create–the opportunity to engage our audience was worth it in the end.
Eric Geier talked about his work with The James’ Facebook page and how easy it is to use video to disseminate information. He said he typically uses these elements to display consumer information and events, like Pelotonia and Cancer Survivors Day. He also mentioned that Ryan created a hash tag for the event on Twitter, which helped us to track what attendees were saying and it also provided a nice opportunity for our team and attendees to share information. Eric said he would like to start using Twitter more regularly to target certain physicians and bloggers and build relationships with those key contacts. Tara Kuisick touched on The James Cancer Warriors Group on Facebook and how it has grown to bring together survivors of all different type of cancer–not just breat cancer. This goes back to what Beth NeCamp was talking about earlier when she discussed creating these patient communities and information sharing hubs.
