Not on Twitter 24/7? The chance is you'll have missed something interesting. Here is Incisive Health's summary of the health tweets which cut through with us over the past 7 days.
- Pretty much everyone agrees that medical leadership is critical to improving health services. But balancing leadership and management with clinical practice is easier said than done, as this blog by @dermotor shows.
- This from @MarkCheetham caught our attention on what actually happens in clinics. Contact time is only a fraction of the time spent in clinic for most patients.
- There was a reminder that future changes to procurement law will have big impact on NHS from @NHSConfed_EU.
- With multiple reshuffles taking place, there was lots of discussion about the implications, including from our own @MBirty. We particularly liked this from @TomHarrisMP on what it feels like to be sacked (and why he deserved it).
- Last week was Day of the Girl. We loved this infographic that brings to life both the progress made and challenges still facing girls around the world.
And a couple of tweets on healthcare in the USA:
- Out of network, out of luck. This piece in @nytimes demonstrates that different systems are also trying to balance competition & integration – and that things done in the name of integration can sometimes harm patients.
- The @CommonwealthFund has published some interesting resources tracking the impact of Affordable Care Act.
- And finally…@incisivehealth was the most read @PRWeekuknews story of last week.
Incisive Health is the new force in health policy and communications. In an NHS environment that is noisy, changing rapidly and where decision-makers are under intense pressure, policy communications need to be incisive to make an impact. We know how to cut through the noise and competing priorities to deliver results that enhance our clients' businesses and reputations and – ultimately – improve healthcare for patients.
