Is There an “Oscar” for Healthcare ?



Much like entertainment, health care information will become available on all media. The convergence of many technologies such as Television, cable, internet, smartphones, tablets, desktops and more devices stimulates openness and transparency. The convergence of all these formats is occurring rapidly each year.

We all know as according to Phil Bauman that “Health is Social” Yet why do physicians either recoil or are dismissive about social media?

Tonight I am watching the Academy Awards on an internet live stream with a choice of six different cameras with upfront face-to-face encounters. It’s all in HD. Television still does not yet have the events on live. (5PM PST).

I have four active windows to select from: Arrivals, Grand Entrance, Red Carpet and  Interviews. All windows are in real-time and simulcast.
