Interview with Dr. David Voran

Dr. David Voran is the Medical Director of Clinical Process Improvement at Heartland Health. He presented at CHC with Director of uCern Brian Carter on the topic of “Social Media in Healthcare.” Dr. Voran is extremely adept in these channels and maintains a Twitter account, a Facebook page and a blog. I spent a couple minutes talking with him after his session, which was extremely insightful on the role of social media in healthcare.
