Hospitals, clinical practices and physicians of all ages are becoming more and more active on social media, according to a new infographic by CDW Healthcare.

Patients are using social media channels to search health information and become more informed about their care, rate the quality of care they receive from providers and reach out to their peers to ask for health advice. Physicians are seeing increasing value in social for their own health and research discussions with colleagues — utilizing it to become more informed on patient care resources and for career development and networking. In fact, 60% of doctors say social media improves the quality of care delivered to patients.

This infographic examines how healthcare organizations, physician practices and patients are using social media in healthcare.
