QuantiaMD and Care Continuum Alliance Study Explores the Role of Social Media in Improving Patient Care

Physicians are highly engaged with social media for both personal and professional use, according to a 4,033-clinician study authored and conducted by QuantiaMD, the largest mobile and online physician community, and Care Continuum Alliance, an international association for wellness, prevention and care management.

Nearly 90% of physicians use at least one social media site for personal use, while over 65% have used at least one to support their professional practice. A burgeoning group of “Connected Clinicians” are using multiple sites for both personal and professional purposes. Physicians see promise in online physician and patient communities for improving patient care, but are struggling with the associated challenges. Please view a report outlining the study at:
