Time: 6:30-8:00 pm Panel Discussion (networking reception to follow)

Social media is emerging as an effective tool for attracting business opportunities. Healthcare providers and patients are building online communities to help manage disease and sort through medical information. In the quest to improve outcomes, hospitals and clinics are using online social networks to discuss their medical practices and for patient outreach. The FDA is considering guidelines for the drug industry’s use of social media for drug marketing.

Dr. Michelle Hoffmann, of Deloitte Research, will be presenting a summary of a recent industry study she coauthored on the practical applications of social networks in the Life Sciences industry. Results from the study are based on interviews with executives in pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies as well as experts in the social media community. Her presentation will be followed by a panel discussion. The panel, composed of individuals experienced in the use of social media and communications, will share their thoughts on the opportunities, challenges, best practices, and value of social media for healthcare.
