At HiMSS 2015 in Chicago, Illinois last Spring we chatted with a number of top CIOs, Chief Innovation Officers, CMIOs and other clinicians in thought leadership roles at major healthcare systems and enterprises around the country.

In this session we speak with Will Weider, CIO of Ministry Healthcare (follow via @ministry_health). Will is active on twitter as well via the handle @CandidCIO

Will speaks to the following questions:

  1. What's driving the adoption of social media?
  2. How would you characterize the current state of social media practice at most healthcare orgainzations?
  3. Who do you see modeling 'best practices' in social media?
  4. Are you hopeful or pessimistic for the utility of this emerging medium?
  5. What excites you about the future?
  6. Is the introduction of social media tools a net positive or negative for our industry?

The candor of the current state of practice in healthcare is not to miss and he lays out the call to action for healthcare providers to meet there customers where they work, live and play [paraphrased].
