Medical Blogging Summit , anyone?

in Blog Rounds by
I’ve been mulling with this idea for quite sometime now and perhaps its high time I’d bring up this here, so I’ll get more hundreds of ideas.

Why not a Pinoy Medical Bloggers’ or Medical Blogging Summit?

It would be the first ever here, and will be the pet project of MDs behind The Blog Rounds. I admit it, that whatever up coming social media that’s going to transform the way physicians deliver the best of healthcare, we have to take advantage of it. The huge potential is astounding. And we’re not even talking yet of Web 2.0. If we are going to do it for us physicians, someone else will jump on it soon. I’ve seen the other more techie friendly professionals grabbed the opportunities of blogging and Web 2.0 and I’m really awed by the progress their taking. Not just hype.

The healthcare industry in the Philippines is seen as a late bloomer in terms of taking opportunities like this. But perhaps it is one way of bringing in closer the archipelagic distances we have to give out the best in healthcare we can offer to our countryman.

Do you have any ideas on this? Please leave a comment!
