Healthcare Leadership #HCLDR Twitter Chat

Screen Shot 2013-05-15 at 4.31.33 PMRecently I’ve participated in the Healthcare Leadership (#HCLDR) Twitter chat on a couple of occasions. This week’s topic was “Music + Medicine: The intersection between story & science.” We were fortunate to have @PamBelluck, @NYTimes Reporter/Musician/Author, as our guest moderator.  Click here to go to the #HCLDR WordPress blog and learn more about the May 14th chat.

For those of you who may not be familiar with it, #HCLDR is a Twitter chat that focuses on the topic of leadership within health care. The chat takes place every Tuesday evening from 8:30-9:30 PM EST. The chat co-founders are Colin Hung @colin_hung Lisa Fields @practicalwisdom. They do a terrific job organizing each event (and they are events!). To follow the chat, all you need is the #HCLDR hashtag.

What amazed me this week was the amount of activity that took place, and information that was shared, in an hour’s time. You can see the stats below. Basically, there were 532 Tweets from a total of 37 participants. That’s an average of 14 Tweets per participant. As you might imagine, the Tweets were coming at an amazing pace. Collectively, those Tweets created an estimated 1,242,236 impressions. That is really impressive for a 60-minute event. I attend some conference that don’t achieve those kind of numbers. (If you click on the image below it will enlarge.)
