Question description

The use of social media as a source of health information is increasing. For example, large teaching facilities often have a link on their website for additional information about a particular disease or procedure. However, Internet sites like blogs, content communities, and other social networking sites as a source of health information is not without its challenges. These challenges include privacy, security, reimbursement, and accessibility.  In your response, address the following:

  • How can inadequate or lack of access to communication technology (the digital divide) lead to care inequality in the emerging e-health model?
  • Discuss at least two types of social media and give examples of how social media can be applied to e-health.
  • Discuss the three challenges noted above and how they relate to the use of social media on the internet as a source of health information.

Guided response: Your initial post should be a minimum of 200-250 words.

  • Utilize a minimum of two scholarly sources, excluding the textbook.
  • Sources should be cited in APA format, as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
  • You must respond to at least two of your classmate’s posts by Day 7.
  • Your three required posts must be on three different days of the week.
