I've been in Washington D.C. attending the 2010 ACPE (American College of Physician Executives) Annual CME Conference. It's been great to connect with some Twitter contacts like @consultdoc and @harrygreenspun. Every time I attend a major meeting, I meet several contacts from my online social network. It's always great to put a real face to a social media username.
Mark W. Browne, MD, MMM, CPE, FAAP (@consultdoc) is a Principal Consultant for Pershing Yoakley & Associates, P.C. I've connected with Mark on Twitter and LinkedIn. Mark manages the American College of Physician Executives (ACPE) group on LinkedIn.
Harry Greenspun, M.D., (@harrygreenspun) is the chief medical officer of the Dell Perot Systems healthcare group. I've connected with Harry on Facebook and LinkedIn. Given that he's constantly traveling all over the world, you can reach him through social networking sites.
Social media is slowly picking up among physician executives. Make sure to follow @ACPE on Twitter. PC World recently published a story titled, "Twitter: More a News Medium Than Social Network." Twitter continues to evolve and many people use Twitter to link to an interesting article online.
Join the ACPE group on LinkedIn and read the blog written by Barry Silbaugh, MD, FACPE, CEO of the American College of Physician Executives.
