Social Media: Connecting to the Crozer-Keystone Community
Charles Hummer III, M.D., fields questions as part of a Web chat on philly.com, the official website of the Philadelphia Inquirer and Philadelphia Daily News.
If you are like many people, you may use e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and other programs and applications daily to communicate and to obtain news and information. Crozer-Keystone’s Public Relations and Marketing team are likewise using these same tools to promote the health system and to provide employees, visitors and patients with helpful news and information about programs, events and tips for staying healthy.
Most employees and members of our Delaware County community use the Crozer-Keystone Health System website, www.crozerkeystone.org, regularly. You may have received one or more of the health system’s e-newsletters, sent a message to a legislator through our Advocacy Center or picked up a healthy recipe through our “Health eCooking Show” application. But you can also “like” the Crozer-Keystone Facebook page and receive daily messages, follow Crozer-Keystone’s “tweets” on Twitter and watch a range of videos on YouTube or ICYou.com.
In addition, Crozer-Keystone recently began partnering with philly.com, the official website of the Philadelphia Inquirer and the Philadelphia Daily News, to conduct online chats with physicians. On Dec. 8, Crozer-Keystone orthopedic surgeon Charles Hummer III, M.D., hosted a chat about pain associated with sports injury. In just one hour, Hummer fielded 32 questions; his chat was viewed by a total of 122 people. Albert-El-Roeiy, M.D., chief of the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology at Crozer-Chester Medical Center, was scheduled to do the next web chat on Jan. 26.
