This morning Cleveland Clinic held their “State of the Clinic” in which they used Twitter to provide quotes from their CEO Dr Cosgrove. This is the first time that I have seen a healthcare system provide this kind of insight via Social Media. These tweets are worth reading as they provide insight into one of the nation’s leading medical systems.
“@ClevelandClinic: Dr. Toby Cosgrove opens #StateoftheClinic calling this moment in healthcare “a time of hope and fear” in an “age of exploding knowledge."”
“@ClevelandClinic: Mission remains: "Striving to be the world’s leader in patient experience, clinical outcomes, research and education. #StateoftheClinic”
“@ClevelandClinic: Dr. Cosgrove says @ClevelandClinic will seek to extend its integrated care model & leverage clinical care, IP, consulting #StateoftheClinic”
“@ClevelandClinic: To achieve value-based care, must do things better, faster & at lower cost, Dr. Cosgrove says #StateoftheClinic”
“@ClevelandClinic: Highlighting cost savings, last year @ClevelandClinic eliminated 12,000 lab tests, saving $1.2 million #StateoftheClinic”
“@ClevelandClinic: "We must accelerate the rate of change,” Dr. Cosgrove tells staff in closing #StateoftheClinic “This is our time."”
