For many of us, back-to-school also means lessons in computer literacy to access our children’s online textbooks, e-mailed status reports and teachers’ Web sites. Web 2.0 is everywhere — co-workers and children are friending, tweeting and texting away as these social networking tools become de facto communication modes. The healthcare industry isn’t immune. A featured story this week chronicles how blogs, podcasts and wikis are changing the face of information exchange at the Cleveland Clinic.

We’re no strangers to user-generated content (UGC) ourselves. HIN ventured into the Web video realm earlier this year, and this month are raising our virtual profile even higher. You can now friend HIN VP and COO Melanie Matthews on Facebook and join the Healthcare Intelligence Network group.

You can also follow HIN on Twitter.

Join us there, and we’ll figure out together whether Health 2.0 is helping or hindering our industry’s information flow. And share your Web 2.0 experiences at the HIN blog.

We also offer you one final way to communicate — by taking our fourth annual Healthcare Trends survey. Tell us about your year in healthcare and what’s ahead for your organization in 2009, and we’ll send you an e-summary of the results at the conclusion of the survey.
