Should Doctors Embrace Livestreaming?

Ross Brand with your Livestream Universe Update and Flash Briefing for Tuesday, May 15th, 2018.

The American Academy of Pediatrics is recommending doctors live stream on social media platforms. Dr Angela Mattke writes that live streaming allows “pediatric providers to reach beyond the clinic and engage with patients and caregivers wherever they take a mobile phone.” She says doctors can increase the probability of compliance with recommendations by sharing them consistently on social media. Dr. Mattke also writes about the ability of pediatricians to positively impact people they will never meet.
