Having just returned from the DIA Clinical Forum meeting in Lisbon, I was happy to see a notice within my LinkedIn account about a new posting by Daniel Ghinn of Creation Healthcare. This is not only a good overview of the Medical Informatics session at the DIA meeting but also makes reference to the recent DigiPharm Europe conference recently held in London. Daniel also delivered an insight packed presentation at the DIA meeting on the use of social media (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Flickr) by pharmaceutical companies. In this presentation, Daniel cited work done by Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer and Boehringer-Ingelheim. Both are worth your time.
