Social media

Social media is not only an important source of information for the patients, it is also a valuable resource in helping them take charge of their own health. As the nature of community changes, so does the nature of providing care.

This is where technology and social networks step in. People are increasingly using these platforms to organise and manage their own health and support networks.

In this HSJ Podcast, Vickie Cammack, founder and CEO of Tyze Personnel Networks, talks about how social media and technology are providing the alternate ways of care support for the patients.

Tyze is an online social network that helps patients and their friends and families stay connected by sharing information, offering emotional support and providing practical assistance, thereby acting as virtual care giver.
