Social Networking in Health: e-Patients, Data & Privacy

Join Dr. John Grohol in a SXSW Core Conversation this Sunday in Austin, Texas.

With the rise of social networking in health, the inevitable questions arise about patient’s data and privacy. But such networks also allow for aggregating data which can help people spot trends and changes in their own health. This discussion panel will discuss the pros and cons of such networking tools.

This conversation couldn’t be more timely, with Google’s recent data leak just the latest in a long history of companies being unable to keep private data they promised they would. Questions to ask yourself — With Twitter and Facebook becoming so prevalent, does privacy even matter anymore? Should I be more or less concerned about the privacy of my health records? What about my mental health records? Should I just trust the big companies and the hospitals and put it all out there? Or is there some better way nobody’s yet thought of?
