Keeping this in mind and the opportunity it presents for research and understanding the industry trends, we at @HCITExpert, have been trying to Index (so to speak) various articles and shares by the community members on twitter, their blogs, magazine articles, and many other sources we follow; by hashtagging these articles with relevant Healthcare Hashtags used by the community.
Well it goes without saying that there are different versions of the hashtags, but we have tried to select a few and be consistent with those in our effort to share content at the same time continue to hashtag the twitter posts with these relevant hashtags.
Our content curation on Twitter involves using a combination of two hashtags (or more at times). One is the Anchor hashtag and the other one is a context hashtag.
The anchor hashtag
We use this hashtag as the main anchor hashtag for all our tweets.
The anchor hashtag allows us to identify the curated content we have been sharing on twitter.
Since we have a content anchor hashtag that identifies the content we have shared via our twitter account, we have been additionally adding one of the context hashtags that provides a context to the tweet.
For instance, if the article we are tweeting from a popular content source, is about Mobile Health, we append the tweet with the hashtags
This way the hashtag: provides the context and the anchor hashtag: provides us the ability to find the HCITExpert curated content.
Here is a listing of some of our that we use to add context to the curated tweets:
During the HIMSS ’15 conference, we found a lot of folks had been sharing some very interesting Healthcare and Healthcare IT related stats. We started to make a listing of these as part of a Day – wise blog post. Subsequently we realised the power of #Hashtagging these tweets with the context hashtag. So if you were to head over to Twitter and search of the term
you will find an interesting list of stats that you could use for your presentations. We continuously keep updating these stats as an when we come across an interesting Health IT related statistic.
The above combination provides us a top level node for all the tweets that are about Healthcare or Health IT Statistics.
We have also added additional context at times to the #wallofstats tweets by including one of the Context hashtags, for instance,
The above combination indicates that the tweet is a Healthcare IT stats tweet about mobile Health. This presents to us a sub-node to the #wallofstats #HITSMIND statistics tweet.
We have also used the Conference hashtags along the the wallofstats hashtag combination to indicate that the tweet was shared during a particular conference, for instance:
indicates a Healthcare or Health IT related statistic that was shared during RSNA15. This is another subnode.
We have been using to curate the twitter content we share with the community are shared below. Head on over to Twitter and search these hashtags in combination with the Anchor #HITSMIND hashtag to review some of our curated content.
Tweetchats, Tweetathons are an interesting trend wherein a community gathers online or in person at a specific date and time and share their thoughts around a topic chosen by the chat moderator.
They are a great source of community driven content curation that is close to a topic of discussion.
