John Halamka on Facebook:
“In my next generation of portal frameworks, I will support our own versions of all the Web 2.0 functionality (forums, wikis, groups, multimedia uploads) that is in Facebook, but I will also ensure that Facebook itself is used strategically. Staying agile and responsive to my customers requires that I embrace Facebook, not resist it.”
In case you’re not yet familiar with Dr. Halamka or his excellent blog:
John D. Halamka, MD, MS, is Chief Information Officer of the CareGroup Health System, Chief Information Officer and Dean for Technology at Harvard Medical School, Chairman of the New England Health Electronic Data Interchange Network (NEHEN), CEO of MA-SHARE (the Regional Health Information Organization), Chair of the US Healthcare Information Technology Standards Panel (HITSP), and a practicing Emergency Physician.
Dr. Halamka is frequently mentioned in Paul Levy’s Running a Hospital, and absolutely understands the value of hospital libraries…though I wish he’d answered Mark Funk’s question (hint-hint, nudge-nudge, wink-wink, fingers crossed).
