Last week, Rock Health (@Rock_Health) organized its third annual Health Innovation Summit (#HiSum) in San Francisco. With more than 400 individuals in attendance -- physicians, investors and entrepreneurs -- the summit represented a range of sectors from the healthcare industry. The summit included visits to the offices of leading digital health companies, interactive discussions and care provider feedback, as well as demos of new products of services. OpenPlacement (@OpenPlacement) had the privilege to be in attendance and partake in the activities.
With that said, this week we continue our segment of #OPFollowFriday (that is “OpenPlacement FollowFriday”), Healthcare Giants on Twitter. These twitter accounts are recognized #HiSum attendees who have been doing a fantastic job of tracking and announcing breaking news in areas of healthcare innovation, caring for the aging population, and peer support. We are happy to recognize them and other like-minded twitter accounts. If we missed out on any influential leaders or you think you might be a healthcare sleeping giant, let us know in the comments or tweet us @OpenPlacement. Accounts will be reviewed and vetted for appropriate content and stay tuned for future #OPFollowFriday’s.
On Twitter we have created a community that is sustained through the meeting of the minds on our other social media channels including our Facebook and LinkedIn accounts. Help support us and these individuals in our unified goal of educating and informing the public on topics related to care transitions, Diabetes, senior care, hospice, palliative care, aging and health technology to just name a few.
Follow these exciting leaders to keep up-to-date and stay informed of healthcare changes on the horizon.
