June 10, 2015•23 min
Host: Matt Birnholz, MD
From mapping AEDs on a phone app to communicating with colleagues on Facebook, technology has become an integral part of daily life. Some would even call their phones an extension of the human nervous system, as evinced by a near-constant awareness of their battery life. Yet despite this high prevalence and demand for social media in regular affairs, medicine has been slow to adopt it. Join Dr. Matt Birnholz and Dr. Nathaniel DeNicola, Senior Fellow with the Penn Social Media and Health Innovation Lab, as they discuss the role of technology and social media in medicine, with particular attention to ACOG's adoption over the past 10 years.
