The Healthcare Hashtag Project: #Ebola

HealthWorksCollective, October 23, 2014

There is a concern that healthcare has been slow to embrace social media and appreciate its potential to educate and inform. Twitter numbers about healthcare conversations tell a different story: over 610 million Tweets, over 11,00 topics, almost 5,200 hashtags and more than 2100 contributors. The reason we know the data about millions of healthcare tweets is due to the Healthcare Hashtag Project – a program of Symplur. Get Social Health had a conversation with Tom Lee, Co-Founder of Symplur about the reasons the Healthcare Hashtag Project was created. We also chatted about hashtag bombing, tracking specific healthcare conversations and the use of hashtags in conversations about Ebola.
