Wait for 2nd Edition of book to be printed.... Due March
Update the online companion... In Process
As I near the end of this process, I'm really looking forward to seeing the results of my effort to update Social Media in Healthcare: Connect Communicate Collaborate. It has been a time consuming process, but I've truly enjoyed seeing just how far we have come with social media since the 1st edition was written in 2009. I especially enjoyed seeing that many of my projections have become realities in healthcare.
The official release of the book will be at ACHE's annual Congress on Healthcare Leadership. I'll conduct two breakout sessions on the subject and there will be a book signing. If you are attending, come by and see me.
One unintended consequence of this effort is that my blogging has sufferred a bit. It has been a challenge to keep up with posts while I work/travel, take care of a family, relax at my piece of rural America (without Internet access) and re-research and edit the book. But soon, I hope to have a bit more free time for this pursuit. So, stay tuned!
