Hospital Social Media Stats

Here’s some interesting stats from Ed Bennett that were shared in PharmaVOICE (Oct 2011) based on 1,188 hospitals that are using social media.

  • 548 YouTube channels
  • 1,018 Facebook pages
  • 788 Twitter accounts
  • 458 LinkedIn accounts
  • 913 Foursquare
  • 137 Blogs
  • 3,952 hospital social networking sites

My one pet peeve is the “emergency room” locations that publish their wait time via Twitter.  If it’s really an emergency, shouldn’t I be going in to get care not focusing on wait times?  And, aren’t the wait times variable based on how urgent my need?
