As Twitter Matures, Hospitals Harness its Power

Marianne Aiello, for HealthLeaders Media, May 16, 2012

Currently, AMC is using the partnership to promote a new service line for a surgical procedure to alleviate excessive sweating. Metrics of re-tweets and mentions tracked well. 

"In the future, we hope to more directly correlate promoted/advertised tweets with measurable downstream revenue," Gordon says. "We are also looking at live tweeting less complex, lower risk surgical cases to promote awareness around key service areas."

As you look to the future of your organization's Twitter and social media plan, what do you see?
