An Introduction

preferredHospitals.com is an emerging network of ‘digital’,  web 2.0 or ‘social media friendly’ institutions. Yet just what is a digital or social media friendly hospital? While a relatively new and still emerging socio cultural notion, they are health care organizations committed to transforming a market insensitive and increasingly unsustainable volume vs. quality driven general hospital business model, while embracing to the following key principles:
  • cost and quality transparency
  • patient empowerment via tools integrating with your personal (PHR) or electronic (EHR) medical records
  • active community engagement via blogs, Twitter, FaceBook, YouTube or other new age media
  • ‘direct medical practice’ friendly
  • a proactive commitment to sensitively serve the under-served, i.e., the uninsured or growing ranks of under-insured
  • a signatory to the Health Data Rights declaration
Though a new and rapidly evolving industry, we intend to build and brand a national network of like minded hospitals who value consumer empowerment via ‘participatory medicine’ engagement.
