This week’s chat will be hosted by Erica Johansen with Splash Media (@thegr8chalupa and @SplashMedia). We’ll be discussing the topic “How Do We Include Every Generation in our HIT?”

Commentary on generational nuances have made their way into previous #HITsm chats and those comments usually sparked quite a discussion. So, we couldn’t think of a better way to give the people what they want!

We’re excited to share the topic and questions for this week’s #HITsm chat happening Friday, 12/16 at Noon ET (9 AM PT). This week’s chat will be hosted by Erica Johansen (@thegr8chalupa) from Splash Media on the topic of “Reputation Management“.

Every doctor I know worries about their online reputation and the plethora of sites that are cropping up around physician reputation. Managing it with limited time and resources is a challenge and is the topic for this week’s #HITsm chat. Come and share your insights on the best ways to handle online reputation management and experiences you’ve had as a patient when it comes to rating and reviewing your providers.

Here’s the full list of questions that will serve as the framework for the #HITsm chat on Reputation Management:

T1: Should providers be interested in their online reputation? Does it matter? #HITsm

T2: As a patient, have you ever read a review after being referred to, or before selecting, a new physician? #HITsm

T3: Have you ever written an online review for a healthcare experience? If so, was it generally positive or negative? #HITsm

T4: Is there an expectation that providers (individual and/or organizational) respond to social media engagements by patients? #HITsm

T5: What would a healthcare provider who is exceptional at managing their online reputation look like? Is there an example? #HITsm

Bonus: What lessons could be learned from managing your personal online reputation that could guide provider reputation management? #HITsm
