Transcript of The Social MEDia Course: The Future of the Internet and Medicine

I hope you enjoyed the world's first and still only course about social media primarily for medical students
Thank you for the attention!
De a web 2.0 nem olyan, mint a tiniszex...
Map of web is very diverse
Is there a solution?
It has to assign meaning to data
Stamp is a stamp

Red is a colour
Where do we go from there?
The future is certainly not this...
Internet and computers weren't always considered that important
Accessing our computers (hard drives) on the web
Accessing media content through non-traditional channels
Mobile web
Accessing data in all forms
Virtual reality
I was asked to describe Healthcare of 2050 in 140 characters
“In 2050,
healthcare is
decision trees
are available,
online content is
patients are
doctors are
and collaborative
barriers are gone
+ storing our files and documents

Am I too drunk to drive?

The Google Story
From Twitter to Tumblr in Medicine
Medical Community Sites
Medical Search Engines
Editing Medical Wikis
Social media can be used in medicine with proper strategy and by knowing the potential issues and dangers.
Being up-to-date with RSS
Let the information come to you and access everything in one place!
Twitter is the fastest channel and can also be used for crowdsourcing.
The Medical Blogosphere
The World of E-Patients
Communities represent the real essence of social media, but learn about privacy issues and know your settings perfectly.
16 topics
Everything you have to know about Wikipedia
The aim is

NOT to make you all web-savvy

NOT to make you spend more time online

NOT to persuade you the web is crucial in medicine
But to know how you
can be web-savvy
if you want

But to know how you can
spend your time efficiently

But to know how you can
meet the special needs of e-patients
Several Google tools can facilitate our online work, but make sure you know your privacy settings.
Learn to search properly online and find the most suitable search engines for your needs
A blog can be a successful channel for a physician, but first listen and learn the rules then use the 3 rules of blogging.
E-patients tranfrom healthcare, but medical professionals should help them and meet their needs.
Wikipedia gives you a good picture when doing research online, but should never be the last resource you finish your search with.
Social Media in Healthcare: Hospitals and Practices
One of the best tools for online collaboration is a medical wiki.
Collaboration Online
There are many tools for online collaboration from document editing solutions to video chat.
New Media in Medicine
Mobile apps and video-related content will rule the future of web.
Education in the Social Media Era
Digital literacy must be in the medical curriculum.
Virtual Worlds in Medicine
Virtual worlds can be used for communication or organizing online events but only when there are geographical limitations.
The Future of Social Media from the Medical Perspective
Use the web wisely with strategy and it will save you time and efforts.
Hospitals and medical practices can use social media for communication, but they should know the limitations and be clear about their policies.

Let's see a few snippets of the future of medicine
: Social media or web 2.0 is just a form of communication
But as there are more and more e-patients, medical professionals have to...

Old web
Web 2.0
(Social Media)
Millions of users
Read-only content
Websites and portals
Content only belongs to authors
Advertisements, banners
Billions of users are in the spotlight
Read-write content
Blogs, Twitter and Facebook
Sharing content
Word of mouth is the best ad
Individual user is in the focus
Portable content
Dynamic content in semantic databases
I make my content easily searchable
Old web
Web 2.0
(Social Media)
Although there will some major changes
On desktop
And web based apps
Watching operations live
All kinds of medical apps
Attached medical devices
E.g. Alcohol breathalyzer
Remote ultrasound examination
Augmented reality
Phone's camera shows the GPS locations of defibrillators
Talking with the phone
Semantic search
When I do a search for "red stamp"
the search engine should understand that
Giving body mass index in the first result and visualizing it
Asking questions
(it understands what kind of information I'm looking for)
Health parameters on a bracelet
Holographic technology
Getting more data about someone by looking through our smartphone camera
Therapies in psychiatry
One account for one user accessing all the platforms he/she uses
Services gathering all relevant information
For taking the whole course!
But don't care about platforms!
The next big thing might be
What matters is
you communicate online
The internet in 2020
The internet will be network of things, not computers
It will be wireless
More services will be in the cloud
IBM's Watson coming to medicine
