Simple Ways Medical Professionals Can Use Social Media To Reach More Patients

We were thrilled this week when we heard the following success story about a urologist in Louisville, KY who is using social media to help more patients nationwide.

Dr. Schrepferman, a urologist at Allied Urology in Louisville, Ky. came to Vest Advertising, asking for help to get more national attention. He is a nationally recognized leader in microsurgery, with a near perfect success rate, but he didn’t have a big budget for advertising, meaning he couldn’t afford a traditional media approach.

So, Vest Advertising outfitted him with some digital tools that revolutionized his practice for a very low investment. See how they did it at: http://www.healthcarecommunication.com/Main/Articles/8013.aspx

Dr. Shep's website is the hub of his efforts.

UroMed is a strong advocate for using social media to help the people that we serve. If you haven’t visited our online peer support community, Life After Spinal Cord Injury, we invite you to do so!

The reason why UroMed is so active in communicating through this blog, as well as via Twitter and Facebook, is due in large part to the challenges that people with disabilities face.
 
If you live in a rural area or small town, you may not know anyone else in a wheelchair.  Or, due to the level of your condition, you may be primarily home-bound.
 
UroMed leverages social media to the fullest extent to inspire and assist people in those situations, as social media opens up a whole new universe for connection points and access to healthcare information along with peer support relationships and networking opportunities.
 
Do you have a social media success story regarding peer support and health resources that you’d like to share?  Send it to us at lwells@uromed.com.  Thanks!
