TAMPA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CIC Advisory, a national leader in helping healthcare organizations use technology to improve patient care and reduce cost, announced today the launch of their business-oriented social media site at www.facebook.com/cicadvisors.
“We work with senior clinicians in health care institutions all over the US. Their world is changing fast and the rapid exchange of ideas - especially among peers - is critical. Our site will foster dialogue that ultimately improves outcomes and helps our clients become more efficient,“ notes CIC co-founder Cynthia Davis.
The CIC Advisory Facebook page will work hand-in-hand with its widely read blog, TLC: Think. Learn. Care. (http://cicadvisory.com/think-learn-care). Together, these resources provide an interactive forum on the operational and regulatory challenges facing healthcare technology executives.
CIC co-founder Marcy Stoots comments, “At its core, effective healthcare is about people connecting with — and taking care of — other people. At CIC Advisory, we follow a similar philosophy. We believe that we are more effective and can better help healthcare providers achieve their patient care and technology investment goals when we connect directly with the people we serve. The Facebook platform is a proven tool for building one-to-one and organization-to-organization relationships.”
Adds Davis, “By providing a venue for an ongoing discussion about healthcare technology, shared successes and the challenges ahead, everyone will benefit: our clients, our colleagues and other HIT professionals.”
