The Journal of Participatory Medicine has published a research paper entitled “Promoting Participatory Medicine with Social Media: New Media Applications on Hospital Websites that Enhance Health Education and e-Patients’ Voices.” The study analyzed the content of 14 top hospitals’ websites, particularly patient-oriented features. The authors conclude that the convergence of interactive media formats with web-based communication tools will likely enhance e-patient education and promote patient involvement in ways that alter traditional health care interactions, and may lead to enhanced levels of participatory medicine.
