The IMIA Social Media Working Group (SMWG) (http://imiasocialmedia.wordpress.com) held a successful meeting on Monday evening at MIE2011. Chaired by Dr Chris Paton, IMIA SMWG chair and Luis Luque, Secretary of the SMWG, the meeting attracted over 20 people.
Chris and Luis outlined the history of the SMWG and some past activities, as well as future plans. Much of the meeting was taken up by discussion among participants of possible future activities for the WG, and some possible areas that might be needed for future research.
Information o future plans will be distributed via the above blog pages.
On Tuesday 30 August, the SMWG will host a workshop at MIE2011, titled “Towards a Research Agenda for Social Media in Healthcare and Academia”. We will try to tweet and blog ‘live’ from the event.
