Over a year ago, I started RNchat, a Twitter chat for registered nurses. At that time, I considered launching a similar venture for physicians, but decided that eventually some physician would take a stab at creating one.
It’s been a year, and after seeing the success of RNchat and the need for the perspective of physicians, I realized I should re-visit the idea of a Twitter chat for physicians. After teasing it several weeks ago from @HealthIsSocial, it was clear that there was a lot of interest.
The full post with the details and the rationales for launching this novel little platform for physicians is right here.
This kind of venue may not be for every physician. That’s OK. But my feeling is that there is a growing realization that the emerging technologies of our century beg to be discerned by all fields – and medicine is certainly no exception.
