Twitter's like a box of chocolates, or, Health care hashtags

From Health B2B Marketing:

Apologies to Forrest Gump, but you truly never know what you’re going to get out of Twitter.

Like many of you, I follow some common hashtags for our industry on Twitter: #hcmktg (short for health care marketing), #hcsm (short for health care social media) and #healthIT. Lately, I seem to be posting more to and learning more from #healthIT. Just this morning, I saw a tweet from a handle I haven’t yet noticed: @icd10watch, which is run by journalist Tom Sullivan. ICD-10 Watch promotes a website developed by MedTech Publishing and sponsored by InfoSys. With the HIPAA 5010 transition deadline approaching fast and the ICD-10 deadline not far behind, the folks at InfoSys are smart to position themselves as a visible leader in the space.

Editor's note: I really like to follow #hcsm. Users of this tag have a regular Sunday night Twitter discussion that is often fascinating. (stl)
