There are many ways to use social media in healthcare, including promoting awareness, encouraging patient engagement, and sharing accurate health messaging.
With some reports suggesting that more than 80% of every generation use social media daily, it is becoming increasingly important for general practices and allied health businesses to engage with social media as a key way of communicating with the communities they serve.
